“It is an honour for us to be part of this initiative. We aim to finish the race in a good time to show what can be done,” said team manager Unathi Msophi.
Msophi said cycling had been a really big help for the team’s members. Besides competing together, they were also friends who grew up together in Kayamandi.
The team practise daily and frequently participate in big cycling events, such as the Cape Epic.
SU’s campus health service provides sports medicine and pre-event screening services to them.
