Young cheer­lead­ers made a dif­fer­ence

The Star Early Edition - - POLITICS -

THE 13th an­nual Im­folozi moun­tain bike chal­lenge, in con­junc­tion with Old Mu­tual and Wild­lands, one of only a few game rides where bik­ers cy­cle through a re­serve with game in its nat­u­ral habi­tat, of­fered the more than 350 ath­letes the spec­ta­cle of rhi­nos, ele­phants, chee­tahs, gi­raffe, spring­bok and ze­bra. But the win­ners for the day were the chil­dren in Mam­beni vil­lage, KZN, near the end of the 55km ride, who cheered rid­ers on while singing Shosholoza; in re­turn, bik­ers who had only 2km left of the race tossed them the re­main­ders of their en­ergy bars, much to the chil­dren’s de­light.
