Robert Hunter will join his Barloworld team-mates in South Africa for the Pick 'n Pay 94.7 Cycle Challenge while helping to raise money for the Homeless Talk Preschool. The mass-participation event takes place in Hunter's home country on November 18.
Barloworld's Hunter, Mauricio Soler, Paolo Longo Borghini and James Perry are not racing to win but to give something back to society through the sport they love. They are riding for the Homeless Talk Preschool, the official Pick 'n Pay 94.7 Cycle Challenge charity. All cyclists are welcome to join the Hunter bunch at a cost of R1 800 (€81) per entry. All the money raised will go to the school.
More than 50 people have already entered to ride with the Barloworld boys. Entries will remain open right up to race day.
"It is important for me to give something back and I always enjoy cycling with the fun riders and listening to their perspectives on the sport," said the winner of this year Tour de France stage to Montpellier. "The Cycle Challenge is definitely one of my highlights on the local cycling calendar."
