Over 300 cyclists are scheduled to take part as Mascom brings to Botswana the first ever Mascom Cycle Challenge, which aims to promote the sport and healthy living in the country.

Sponsored to the tune of P70,000, the event kicks off on Sunday morning, 7.30am at the Airport Junction Mall to Rasesa. The cycle challenge also aims to build a relationship with the cycling community, which will allow Mascom to reach a niche audience.

The Mascom Cycle challenge will comprise five categories such as the 100km elite race designed for riders who have more racing and cycling experience. It is the major attraction which will see avid cyclists battling it out on the A1 road. There will be prizes for the first, second and third male and females’ categories. Entry is P200 for adults and P150 for juniors (16 and 22yrs).
