Whyte team rider on safari
Whyte team rider Luke Smith brought his Whyte Carbon 19 mountain bike home to the top step in the 75km Broadhurst road race in Gabarone, Botswana on knobbly tires!
Luke managed to maintain his place in the front of the peloton throughout the race, much to the surprise of the other riders. As the race neared the finish some of the top riders were attacking to break free of the group, only to be sucked back. Coming into the finish straight Luke had himself positioned second wheel behind the lead pro rider. He launched his attack and realized with a quick glance behind him that he had gapped the other riders and would be claiming the top step on the podium.
At the finish he told spectators and riders that Whyte mountain bikes cannot be beaten, however he admitted that he had surprised himself with his result.
