Discovery 947 Ride Joburg proud to announce ASG as new merchandise partner!

An epic race in an iconic African city should have world-class merchandise, which is why the Discovery 947 Ride Joburg is extremely proud to announce that ASG has come on board as its official merchandise partner.

ASG is a world leader in cycling merchandise with offices in South Africa, Australia, Italy, Monaco and theUnited States. They distribute over 40 international brands in South Africa, including Pinarello bicycles, Rudy Project eyewear, SIDI shoes, Selle San Marco saddles, SCICON bags and Ftech custom cycling clothing. Four-time Tour deFrance champion Chris Froome and his teammate, Geraint Thomas, have both ridden races in Joburg on Pinarello bicycles.

ASG will provide a wide range of cycling equipment – ranging from cycling clothing, bicycles, mechanical equipment and eyewear – for the 20 000 plus entrants at the race expo to enhance their riding experience on the day and in the future. The range will also include Cycle Challenge merchandise for the many family and friends of the entrants to ensure that they have something special to support their loved ones on Cycle Challenge Sunday with.

According to Heinrich Dannhauser, CEO of the ASG International group, the collaboration presents several synergies that will benefit not only the event and the Discovery 947 Ride Joburg but also, more importantly, the participants. ASG will offer many of their global offerings to participants at preferential rates through the event online entry process and also at the Expo in November.

We are extremely happy to work with an incredible event such as Discovery 947 Ride Joburg and will do our best to provide substantial extra value to participants.
