ABOUT MAD RIDER
MAD RIDER dares like-minded, sometimes MAD individuals [and businesses] to take on EXTREMELY TOUGH CYCLING CHALLENGES – investing and risking everything, to power the next generation of South African road cyclists, to perform internationally.
Of all the super-tough sports, road cyclists – competing at the highest level – have to be incredibly resilient with moment-to-moment adaptability, remaining mentally alert for the duration of a race, while having the added pressure of being a member of a team, alongside their own personal aspirations.
“It’s not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves”
Sir Edmund Hillary
MAD RIDERS are invited to challenge themselves, their friends and co-workers to take on these tough events, in order to raise awareness and funding for the development and enablement of South Africa’s top riders and teams. From entry level to extremely TOUGH – we have challenges for everyone.
And, if you don’t ride you can participate too, by funding these challenges – sponsoring a MAD RIDER or a MAD RIDER team, supporting an individual professional athlete or, even their whole team.
