CYCLING – IT’S that time of the year and cyclists will be thrilled to learn that the 6th Inyatsi Nkonyeni Classic race is just around the corner.

The race taking place on August 4 at Eswatini’s serene Nkonyeni Lodge & Gold Estate again is set to attract local and international riders, as the riders in this thrilling mountain bike race will explore the country’s finest landscapes and bushveld.

This was disclosed by Inyatsi Human Resources Manager Edwin Mbingo during the launch of the race at Inyatsi House in Manzini.

Mbingo said it was that time of the year again where cyclists should start preparing themselves for the race.

“We are excited to announce that Inyatsi will be again hosting a cycling race at Nkonyeni Estate at Sidvokodvo on August 4.”

This mountain bike race will take hundreds of Emaswati riders from the luxurious Golf Estate terrain, to the mountainous landscape within Nkonyeni Lodge & Golf Estate.

Mbingo mentioned that not only would people enjoy racing but also get the opportunity to ride in the wild and see different scenes of nature.

He then invited Emaswati and cyclists outside the country of all ages from toddlers to veterans to partake in the race.

Mbingo promised that there would be technical support and that the Emergency Medical Services would also be present as well.

“Cyclists are to expect medals and money as prizes during the event and we would like to challenge local cyclists to win their races,” he said.

He also mentioned that all media houses in Eswatini will be covering the event, including SuperSport, which is a South Africa-based media house. The event is sponsored by Galp, GGS, MPS, PNP, Nkonyeni estate and many more sponsors.
