Vanessa Haywood to ride the Glacier by Sanlam Storms River Traverse 2012
Dryland Event Management and Glacier by Sanlam are excited to announce that Vanessa Haywood will be riding this year’s Storms River Traverse. Vanessa confirmed her involvement as ambassador late last week and is looking forward to the challenges that the race will bring.
“I have always been an avid mountain biker and I am looking forward to the Glacier by Sanlam Storms River Traverse. Even though I am sure the race will be a challenge, I am also looking forward to the social and community aspect that is synonymous with this race. The stunning area of Tsitsikamma is also going to make for some interesting routes as well as beautiful scenery.”
Vanessa, who is a keen athlete, has competed in some of the most grueling mountain and road biking marathons as well as triathlons, road and trail runs over the years, and continues to search for races that will challenge her both mentally and physically. Vanessa has donned the covers of both local and international magazines and was cast as the leading lady in the critically acclaimed District 9, which was nominated for 4 Oscars.
Glacier by Sanlam and Dryland Event Management are thrilled with Vanessa’s involvement in this year’s Storms River Traverse and wish her all the best with the race.
