Jennie Stenerhag showed her mountain biking prowess at the picturesque Arabella Hotel & Spa in Kleinmond on Sunday, 24 April 2016, claiming gold in the women’s 50km Cell C Arabella MTB Challenge in a combined finishing time of 4 hours, 40 minutes and 36 seconds respectively.

Jennie Stenerhag also secured her second stage victory on the day. “Today’s stage was tough,” says Stenerhag. “There was a lot of sand and a lot of ups and downs. I went out hard from the start, keeping the pace for the first hour.

“On the long open stretches I could see Carmen Buchacher in the distance. I had to work hard to beat her,” said the stage champ afterwards.

“The Cell C Arabella MTB Challenge was a really good test after my operation. I am really happy to be able to push as hard as I did, winning was a bonus. I’d definitely like to be back next year.”

Carmen Buchacher was the runner up on the weekend, while Katherine Lennard secured the final spot on the podium.

“A big thank you to everyone who participated in our event and congratulations to all finishers of both the mountain biking and trail running categories,” says Doug Mattheus, Cell C Executive Head of Marketing.

“We were blessed with wonderful weather and all the best that the Cape could offer in terms of natural beauty.

“At Cell C, we feel privileged that entrants allowed us to talk to them in their leisure time. We look forward to supporting both their sporting pursuits and business needs with a host of innovative communications products and services.”

Trail running enthusiasts were granted the opportunity to join in on the action by taking part in either the 15km or 6km Cell C Arabella Trail Run Challenge on Sunday, 24 April 2016.
