The new team will compete under the Team Imbuko Momsen Bikes umbrella and represents a 100% South African team.

Focusing on all the premium multi-day stage races on the South African MTB Calendar as well as select single day events, the young duo are excited to make their mark on the local racing scene.


Neither athlete is a stranger to racing at the top level, with both riders having multiple race seasons ( and victories ) under their belt, the dynamic new team setup now offers them both a fresh shot at mixing it up with other top local MTB racers.

This weekend’s Attakwas Extreme will be the team’s first race in their new colours and representing their various sponsors.

Both riders have become an integral part of our racing efforts over the past few years and I am excited to see them compete under the same umbrella for the 2018 season. Victor Momsen – Founder - Momsen Bikes



The idea was to combine my three passions: Africa, Wine and MTB and so the Imbuko / Momsen Bikes team was born! A proudly South African team from members to sponsors! We want to show the world that we can produce a product that is 100% true to our roots and still compete on the highest of levels. Theunis van Zyl – Imbuko Wines Co-Founder

Both riders will be residing in Stellenbosch in 2018 whilst they complete their studies.

A key focus for the team will be the 2018 Absa Cape-Epic where they will be competing for the highly coveted Absa African Jersey.

Their weapon of choice will be their familiar Momsen VIPA Full Suspension bikes with a host of personally selected components to fine-tune the bike for their needs.
