Introducing Team Mondo and wishing our Epic teams well

The 2019 Absa Cape Epic is underway! We wish our teams well as they ride for Qhubeka and to change more lives with bicycles.

One of those teams is Team Mondo, comprising Dean Hay and Dylan Koen, who have already raised ZAR 168 000 (roughly USD11 600) for Qhubeka.

Mondo is a leading direct-to-consumer company that sells mobile products on behalf of South Africa’s major cellular networks, including Telkom, MTN, Vodacom and Jika Mobile. Team Mondo, which includes company director Dylan Koen, was sponsored by HP Store to participate in the 2019 ABSA Cape Epic on behalf of Qhubeka Charity.

The ABSA Cape Epic is a gruelling annual mountain bike race held in the Western Cape that attracts competitors from around the world. It is the most televised mountain bike race on the planet, generating over 30 000 hours of TV coverage in Europe, America, Asia, the Middle East and the African continent. This year, the 8-day race will see competitors cycle a distance of 624 km with 16.6 km of unforgiving uphill terrain.

Mondo and parent company Rewardsco leapt at the chance to represent Qhubeka in the 2019 ABSA Cape Epic. Team Mondo is committed to raising funds to help Qhubeka distribute as many bicycles as possible through its learn-to-earn and work-to-earn programmes aroudn South Africa.

“We believe in helping South Africa “to move forward”, because when it comes to helping those in need, there’s no distance too great or mountain too high,” say Dean and Dylan.
