ENGLISH SUMMARY MTB BEACHRACE

KOGA MTB Beachrace Zeeland.

 

On the 5th of Februari a new mountainbike beachrace will be organised in Zeeland nearby Renesse.

The organisation of the event in Noordwijk, Exventure, shall also produce this new event. This event will be part of the KNWU Lotto mountainbike beachracecompetition, because of this, the top level mountainbikers will also be participating during this race. Mountainbike beachraces are immensely popular during the winter. The key to this success is the fact that pro’s and  amateurs will compete against each other, therefore creating a complete event for any mountainbiker.

 

Manufacturer KOGA will be the main sponsor of this event.  Harald Troost of KOGA:’ We already were enthusiastic co-sponsor for 4 years of the mountainbike beachrace in Noordwijk. When the same organisation indicated that they would start a likewise event in Zeeland, was the moment for us we joined in as main sponsor of this event. With the KMC-Mitsubishi-Koga mountainbiketeam riders, Ramses Bekkenk, Bram Rood and Stedan Vreugdenhil, we have some of the most talented beachracers. Beside the team we have the successful KOGA beachracer in our assortment. This revolutionary bike is specially designed for beachraces. At this moment the bike is a must have in the beachrace discipline.
