South Africa is really turning into the home of mountain biking! Every odd week, I have the pleasure of announcing another world-class cyclist that will be visiting our shores, and this week proves to be no different
Spain’s 3-time world champion, Margarita Fullana, has announced her participation in Pietermaritzburg at the opening round of the 2009 Nissan UCI MTB World Cup, presented by Shimano, which runs from April 10 – 12.
The pixie-sized 36-year old has also won a bronze medal at the Olympic Games and is already considered one of the greatest MTB cross-country riders of all time.
Even better news is that she is only the first of many more world-class entrants that are expected to take part in the Pietermaritzburg event.
So get your cameras and autograph books ready, because the stars are coming to town!
Check out a nice tribute montage organised for Marga below:
