The Munga covers over a thousand kilometres non-stop from Bloemfontein to Wellington, through the heart of the sweltering Karoo. Riders faced soaring temperatures, scorching sun, endless corrugated farm roads, and a 40 kilometre an hour headwind for the majority of the route. Kevin Benkenstein finished fifth overall, after 3 days, 5 hours, and 44 minutes in the saddle. We caught up with him to find out more about the challenge.

Benky is a bit of endurance animal and well known for it in the KZN circles. He has done a couple of solo unsupported everesting efforts. He eats cement for breakfast and lives rule 5!

seems like the Edmund Hillary of our local everesting...so probably the right type of dude for Munga.

 

is he sponsored/supported by Spaz, or just a fanboi?

I think he is actually their South African Marketing Manager. He has 5 Spez bikes.

Ummmm...sorry but who is Kevin Benkenstein?

 

Actually a well known rider and cycling personality who lives and breathes cycling, works for Specialized SA. Originally from KZN and based in Jhb. 

Does a huge amount of good for Qhubeka bikes with numerous everesting rides that are done around the country.
