“With the support from NAD and our co-sponsors we are able to grow the team from strength to strength!” – Nico Bell
Gawie Combrinck and Nico Bell have been racing for NAD Pro since 2016, showcasing impressive results and growing from strength to strength. In addition to these two riders, we are proud to announce that youngsters Matt Beers and Wessel Botha will join the team for 2018. We are excited to follow their progress and we look forward to watching them learn from the more experienced Combrinck and Bell.
“New Africa Developments is very excited to welcome Matt and Wessel to the team as part of an expanded 4-rider setup. With 4 of the country’s leading riders representing our company, we are confident that the NAD name will consistently appear at the top of the leader board throughout 2018” Robin Houghton(Director)
The new additions Matt Beers (2017 Cape Pioneer Trek winner) and Wessel Botha (2017 94.7 MTB winner) are 24 years old and 19 years old respectively, bringing a new dimension to the team. Although they are young and are excited to learn from Combrinck and Bell, both Beers and Botha have shown a high level of dedication, motivation and maturity that sets them a part in the competitive field of South African mountain biking. Botha said, “I am so excited to race alongside brilliant mountain bikers that I can look to for guidance and advice and call my friends.” Beers is particularly enthusiastic, “I can’t wait to race with the team and have such a professional set-up. I think we are going to have a great year and look forward to the year of racing ahead.”
