Lowe, Hough win Nedbank Namibia Rock, Rut XC2

Cylist Kevin Lowe and Mimi Hough produced stunning masterpiece rides to win the Nedbank Rock and Rut XC2 races at the IJG Trails in Windhoek last weekend. 

In the elite men’s category, Lowe beat Theuns van der Westhuizen and Adrian Key to win the race in 01:07:11. 

Van der Westhuizen clocked 01:09:11 in second place, while Key was third in 01:13:24.

Hough completed the elite women’s race in 01:02:19 after six laps. 

She was the only cyclist competing in the category.

Mitchell Dorman was crowned winner in the sub-vet women’s category ahead of Nicola Fester, while Sonja Obholzer triumphed in the veteran women’s category.

Lowe said he was happy to have won despite the low turnout.

“I enjoyed the track, it was nice and fast. The weather was a bit cold. Hence, I knew a decent warm-up would do the trick. The first two laps. I could feel my feet were a bit cold – but after that, I was fine. I had a good battle in the first two laps with Marco (Thiel), but I decided to ride my race. It’s good to see the young ones coming through,” said Lowe.
