Lesotho’s mountain bike rider Phetetso has qualified for the OLYMPIC GAMES in RIO.
THE SUFFERFEST a company that make cycling training videos has been supporting the ACE Lesotho MTB team now for a few years. The team now ranks top 40 worldwide on the UCI list.
It was a pleasure shooting this piece for The Sufferfest and the ACE team, It was a small shoot just a three man team shot by my good friend Christian Denslow. I wanted to show the determination of the rider as I admire people whom against their circumstances push through great odds to prove to them selves that they can compete with the worlds best.
I believe that it’s not what you got but what you do with what you got that counts. I share the team’s belief that Lesotho can produce world class athletes given the right support and management.
Good luck Phetetso Monese.
Here is a nice article from about Phetetso going pro on only $100 a month:
