Nedbank Desert Dash on!
Nedbank announced on Monday that the 2015 Desert Dash is ON!
This follows an agreement between Nedbank and the principal organiser of one of the most exciting cycling races in the country, Aidan de Lange. The essence of the popular race will remain largely the same, as the history of the race has proven to be a hit with cyclists and spectators alike over the years.
At the announcement, Richard Meeks, Nedbank Namibia’s Chief Operating Officer, said the Bank is excited about the prospect of growing the popularity of the race and adding to its ever-growing reputation as an experience not to be missed.
“Nedbank Namibia can surely be considered as the greatest corporate supporter of cycling in Namibia. With the addition of the Desert Dash to our historic Nedbank Cycle Challenge, as well as the road race and mountain bike series, we are quite excited that we now offer all cycling enthusiasts a singular experience every time they participate in a Nedbank-sponsored event,” said Meeks.
De Lange expressed his delight at the fact that the race that he has nurtured to its current eminence now has a new sponsor on board.
“Nedbank Namibia has always shown that it has the development of cycling at its heart. I am excited to see what we can jointly do to make the 2015 Nedbank Desert Dash the best experience ever, given Nedbank’s proficiency at hosting premier cycling races,” said De Lange.
The entry dates for the event, which is takes place on the 11th of December this year, have already been confirmed. They are as follows:
- Entries for the Solo Event open on Monday, 31 August at 10:00
- Entries for the 2-Man Event open on Friday, 4 September at 10:00
- Entries for the 4-Man Event open on Friday, 11 September at 10:00
As always the number of entries is limited, so be prepared as they will be sold on a first come, first served basis.
Further announcements and more detailed information regarding the registration process will be made available on the Nedbank Desert Dash website (www.DesertdashNamibia.com) on 18 August 2015.
“We look forward to working with the entire cycling community to present participating cyclists with an incredibly exciting event,” concluded Meeks.
