The Monitor :: Malete's iron grip on cycling persists








Malete proved his mettle when he won the Mascom Challenge 110km Under 23 men’s race. He went on to win the King of the Mountain Challenge in the same category.  Malete of Samapada Cycling Club completed the race in a time of 02:40:06 followed closely by Advocate Phiri of Morupule Cycling Club 27 seconds later. Sethomo Masepe of BotRail Club finished third, registering a time of 02:47:58.
