‘Maun Bikers Join Khawa Euphoria’


With the annual Khawa Dune Challenge and Cultural Festival starting today at Khawa village in the Kgalagadi District, riders from team Maun have expressed their readiness for the quads/bikes category and are confident of making it to the podium finish.

The two days thrilling sports and cultural tourism event held on the sand dunes of Kgalagadi features motorsport and biking races. The races have been divided into different categories that include junior bikes cheetah, senior bikes cheetah, ladies bikes/quads, quads cheetah, cars open, junior bikes wildebeest, senior bikes wildebeest and quads wildebeest.

In an interview, team Maun member Mogolo Sechube said their preparations for the Khawa Dune Challenge started immediately after the end of the previous event. He noted that they are more than ready for the challenge and confident of a much improved performance and podium finish for most if not all our bikers.

Sechube stated that for the past year all team members have been paying monthly contributions to the team coffers and they have finalised the transport, catering and accommodation logistics.

“In short, despite obvious financial constraints that come with being self-sponsored, we are more than ready, we are yet to confirm the number of bikers, once the registration process has been completed, be that as it may, our usual bikers will likely participate once again,” he said.

According to Sechube, their intention as team Maun is to have as many bikers as possible subject to availability of resources that include bikes. He noted their intention is to grow team Maun not only to participate in Khawa Dune Challenge but to be able to collaborate with other stakeholders to organise motor bike races such as the Independence race.

“We don’t have sponsors yet but we are interested and willing to secure sponsors not only for Khawa Dune Challenge, but also motor sport activities and corporate social responsibility initiatives,” he said.

Sechube has lamented that their most immediate challenge is finances but they hope to overcome by raising motor sport awareness and cultivating community interest, so that motor enthusiasts may come forthwith with sponsorships.
