THREE Namibian Para-cyclists left for George, South Africa yesterday to compete in the Outeniqua Wheelchair Challenge on Saturday.
Frans 'Tupac' Paulus, who has competed there before is back and will be joined by two up-and-coming wheelchair riders, Rudly Gawaseb and Mathias Kamenje.

“We decided to commit some of our funds so that our para-cyclists can compete outside our borders. Frans Paulus will compete in the 42km hand cycling race, while Rudly and Mathias with compete in the 21km wheelchair racing event,” he said.

Hamukwaya thanked their main sponsor Nampower, adding that they were now working towards the next Paralympic Games in 2020.
