The 17th Outeniqua Cycle Challenge (OCC), a wheelchair race which attracts athletes from all over the world, will take place in George on Saturday 14 September 2019!
Georgians know Martelize Brink, an award-winning radio presenter, as a staunch supporter of the Outeniqua Cycle Challenge. She has taken part in numerous events and helped promote the event using her public platform.
The OCC is a wheelchair race exclusively for disabled athletes!
And – every year it is getting bigger and better! The number of entries has increased dramatically, with disabled athletes and other persons in wheelchairs flocking to this annual event.
The Challenge is not only unique as being the first and only event exclusively for the disabled in South Africa, but it is staged in the picturesque town of George, in the heart of the spectacular Garden Route in the Western Cape, situated at the foot of the splendour of the Outeniqua Mountains.
Athletes in racing wheelchairs, adapted bicycles, hand cycles, basketball chairs and ordinary wheelchairs have made this into the premier sporting event for the disabled on the South African sporting calendar. It undoubtedly has the potential to develop into one of the best events of its kind in the world!
Apart from the George Municipality & George Business Chamber, Lancewood and the Department of Cultural Affairs & Sport are supporting the event. Halfway Toyota is the venue host for the event.
