Cape Town, South Africa –South Africa’s leading medical scheme, Fedhealth, is taking their stance on family health care one step further by introducing the exciting Fedhealth MTB Challenge that will take place on Sunday, 06 September 2015 at the picturesque Meerendal Wine Estate (Durbanville) as part of the action packed ISUZU MTB Festival.

According to Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports, the Fedhealth MTB Challenge is the ideal event for the entire family, offering an array of MTB events for the children on the Saturday afternoon, to a marathon, half marathon and fun ride on the Sunday. “We are very proud to welcome Fedhealth as the title sponsor of the Fedhealth MTB Challenge. Together with their support we look forward to hosting one of the most exciting mountain bike weekends in the Western Cape”.

“We’re proud to launch the Fedhealth MTB Challenge,” says Jeremy Yatt of Fedhealth. “People of all ages take up mountain biking – often when you’re out on the trails, you see parents teaching their children how to ride! It has become a family sport, and that makes it a perfect sport for us to be involved with”.

“We’d like Fedhealth to significantly strengthen our association with mountain biking,” continues Yatt. “It’s not a result one achieves just by a once-off campaign, but by staying the course and ironically, in sponsorship of mountain biking, there’s no finish line! But you can have leaders, and we aim to be one of those.”
