The mountain bike race, as part of the Kremetart Cycling Race, saw a lot of young local talent proving to be a force to be reckoned with.
Even cold, wet weather did not dampen the riders enthusiasm, as they tackled the mountain road.
Andries joined the Zoutpansberger and Limpopo Mirror in April 1993 as a darkroom assistant.
