Yolandi du Toit and Ben Melt Swanepoel will ride for Team Garmin MTB for the second consecutive year.
Yolandi has been with Garmin since 2014 and teamed up with Ben Melt Swanepoel last year for the TransAlp stage race in Europe. After successfully completing 5 stage races in 2016 (4 of which were on the podium) Garmin realised the potential and subsequently formed Team Garmin MTB.
The team will be tackling multiple national cycling events, which includes the Cape Town Cycle Tour. To strengthen Garmin’s expansion into Africa, they will focus on the Africa Series to represent Garmin in multiple MTB stage races across the African continent such as 1-Zambia, the Kenya Rift Valley Odyssey, the Kalahari Challenge and the Southern Tropical Challenge in Mauritius.
