Riders from across Namibia attended. Unfortunately, due to transportation issues, including a car breakdown, the PAY team arrived fifty-five minutes after the initial start time. This did not stop Jo Joe Hamunyela’s drive to perform. Even after the extremely late start, Jo Joe surpassed all expectations and surprised many spectators with a strong 7th place finish!
