Cape Town ~ Mountain bike enthusiasts taking part in the 2015 FNB Wines2Whales (W2W) Mountain Bike (MTB) Events (Adventure, Ride and Race) in November will stand an equal chance to take home either a stunning Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp 6 Fattie for men or a Specialized Rhyme FSR Comp 6 Fattie for women.
According to Bianca Grobbelaar, Marketing Manager of Specialized Bicycles Africa, being the bicycle partner of W2W is a success story. “Both brands want to see more people enjoying the lifestyle of riding. At this year’s events we will introduce the 2016 Specialized 6 Fattie platform. The Stumpjumper and Rhyme are both about having fun on the trail. The bike draw will take place during prize giving after Stage Two of each event and will include a complimentary Body Geometry Fit. The winner needs to be present in the marquee to claim his/her prize.”
“Specialized will also be running a fun social media competition,” continues Grobbelaar. “Included in the W2W goody bags will be a Specialized bike sticker. The stickers will differ depending on the event entered. Riders need to tweet or post a selfie with their bikes and tag @SpecializedZA and @w2wmtb using the hashtag of the event entered (#MyAdventure, #MyRide or #MyRace). The rider that submits the best photograph will win a Specialized hamper to the value of R5000. The hamper will be handed to the winner during prize giving after Stage Two of each event.”
Specialized Bicycles Africa will be hosting a Body Geometry Fit Conference in Stellenbosch on Thursday, 26 November 2015. “Body Geometry Fit is the most comprehensive system for connecting bike and rider in perfect harmony,” says Grobbelaar. “Body Geometry Fit is ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to maximize power, endurance and comfort. The conference will be open to the public free of charge. The first 200 people to register online will get a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the developers and founders of Body Geometry Fit, Dr. Andy Pruitt, Dr Roger Minkow and Scott Holz who will be visiting South Africa from the USA and will play host to the conference.”
