Team MK Cycles, Team Mikes Bikes' Sister Race Team in Zimbabwe, received their team kits in the most recent Africa container shipment. The kits came just in time for the Zimbabwe National Race in Harare, where the gentlemen of MK Cycles put in a great showing. Out of a field of fifty competitors, Pk placed 7th and Nkulumo placed 3rd.
Due to this performance, Nkulumo has been drafted to represent Zimbabwe at the All-Africa Games on the Zimbabwe National Team. The team, also known as the Zimbabwe Cycling Federation, first entered the international scene following team member Timothy Jones' successful run on the European and African racing circuits in the 1990s, and more recently, groundbreaking Zimbabwean mountain bike racer Antipas Kwari's participation in the 2008 Olympics. Nkulumo is very excited to go to Harare for accreditation this weekend, and he's thrilled to join such a prestigious African team.
Congratulations to Team MK Cycles and to Nkulumo and Pk! They're Zimbabwe National champions today, and are Olympic hopefuls of tomorrow!
