Bestmed campus2campus race honours fallen legend!

In his recognition Bezuidenhout, a former Bestmed cycling legend will be honoured during the Bestmed Campus2Campus Super Classic to take place on 22 (this Sunday) from Potchestroom in the North West Province.

The Vanderbijlpark born, died due to massive stroke he suffered in March 2012.

The fallen legend was a great rider and an all-rounder, who won the King of the Mountains title in the Rapport Tour a magical seven times and completed the Carnival City Macsteel Classic in February 2012.

Over 1000 cyclists will leave the Potch Military Base and snake through other areas for the 95km and 35km distances, respectively and end the race back at the Base.

A whopping R50 000 is up for taking!

The race is in partnerships with the Cancer Association of South Africa and Incolabs.

“The 95km event is the perfect training ride for cyclists aiming at participating in the Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge. It may consist of mild rolling undulations, but it is very quick and a perfect ride before the Cycle Challenge.

Cyclists can expect a perfect road surface this year as the contractors are working hard at filling every pothole before the race,” says Wynand de Villiers of ASG, organizers of the race.

“We are proud to be part of this event that honours the man who made a huge impact on the cycling sport in South Africa. We are committed to preventative healthcare and healthy lifestyles and this commitment is underpinned by our strategic wellness pillars of Be Active, Be Safe, Be Nutri-Wise and Be Happy.

Our partnership with CANSA and Incolabs allows us to educate people about these pillars that will lead to a more productive and happy nation,” says Sasja la Grange, Bestmed’s Corporate Communications Manager.

The Campus2Campus is one of many cycling races that Bestmed sponsors each year, says La Grange.
