Windhoek – The FNB VETS team for this year’s Desert Dash, comprising of the quartet of Stefan Bohlke, Eleanor Grassow, Hans du Toit and Ian Grassow is gearing up to ruffle feathers, when the race gets underway this weekend
The quartet came out tops in the veterans’ category at Otjihavera. Event principal sponsor FNB Namibia emphasized the importance of sports development.
“We are proud to be able to support this winning team and are confident, that they will achieve podium placement,” said Elize Smith, Head Private Clients, FNB Namibia.
“We know we are part of a victorious team because sports development and support is one of our main focus areas of the FNB Namibia Foundation Holdings Trust – hence our decision to add our weight to this particular category.
“Sport is unifying and plays a role in creating a happy and healthy nation – something we should all strive for,” Smith concluded.
Riders Ian Grassow and Hans du Toit dominated the Hollard MTB series in the very competitive veteran section and Stefan Bohlke is a multiple national champion in his age category of the master men. Elenor Grassow – another winner of multiple local races earlier this year – rounds off this team.
