Imbuko Wines
Meet the Young Guns of Imbuko Momsen professional cycling team, Dylan Rebello (22) and Marco Joubert (20).
The name Imbuko, meaning “admiration for” in Xhosa, was given to the company by its owner, Theunis Van Zyl, who wanted to connect his business with his deep-rooted admiration for Africa and his home country South Africa.
Being a nature, outdoors and fitness lover it is easy to understand why mountain biking is a sport very close to Theunis’ heart. Through mountain biking he gets to explore so many hidden gems of our beautiful country that can’t be accessed in any other way.
The idea was to combine his three passions: Africa, Wine and MTB and so the Imbuko / Momsen MTB team was born, a proudly South African team from members to sponsors! To show the world that we can produce a
product that is 100% true to our roots and still compete on the highest of levels.
We are proud of our Young Guns team and how this product is a perfect representation of what we stand for.
Imbuko Momsen is proudly sponsored by Imbuko Wines, Momsen Bikes, Racepace Sportswear, Stans No Tubes, Nike Vision, Nutritech, Ride Farr and Continental Tires.

action! @ImbukoMomsen

HA!MAN en Belgiese digteres by Breytenbach Sentrum Francois le Roux, oftewel “die HA!Man” keer terug na die Breytenbach Sentrum saam met sy lewensgesellin en ook verhoog-vennoot, die Belgiese digter Joke Debaere

Die gehoor kan in “Reis na Hier” ’n vrye vloei van uitdrukkinge of “items” wat telkens geimproviseer word, verwag. Francois se hoofinstrument is die tjello, maar hy span ook klavier, klein fluite en liggaamsbeweging in om die “HA!” – of innerlike gevoel – in die oomblik uit te druk. By tye neem Joke plaas agter die mikrofoon en begin sy óf voorlees óf spontaan poësie te skep saam met die musiek.
