Dutch company Mansystems announce support of Moolman-Pasio
|On Saturday during a launch in Amsterdam, Dutch companies Mansystems and Sport Medisch Centrum Papendal (SMCP) announced its support of South African cyclist Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio in her bid to claim gold in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
Moolman-Pasio who rides for the Hitec Products professional team based in Europe, will receive access to world class coaching from the SMCP centre leading up to 2016.
The relationship with the centre came about after representatives of Mansystems visited the Flèche Wallonne World Cup last year where Moolman-Pasio finished third and immediately noticed her talent and determination.

“Ashleigh was looking for sponsors to help her to make her dream come true,” said Arnold Zwart, a founding member of Mansystems.
“Until then she did everything on her own together with her husband and the rest of the family. When I learnt about her long-term goals I was positively surprised.
“She shows determination and focus to play a role in the development of a strong South African women’s cycling team and to empower South African and other African women cyclists to follow their passion and pursue their dreams.”
Zwart continued: “Realising that the right technical and medical support could increase her chances, I approached a friend of mine who is the owner of SMCP. Their staff tested Ashleigh and the outcome was that she has all the qualities to become a top cyclist and many improvements can be made with the right professional support.“Mansystems decided then to sponsor the support by SMCP for the next 2.5 years leading up to the Olympic games in 2016.”
