The International Bank Windhoek Enduro race on Saturday created a huge amount of interest, while riders were thoroughly tested on a challenging track.
The track, which included all kinds of terrain, was challenging enough. With the wind and the dust, the track became just too much for some of the riders and their iron horses.
The section that created the most excitement for the spectators took the riders through parts of the dilapidated mining processing plan of the Uis mine.
Cohen Fistball Club 3 reaffirmed their status as the overwhelming favourites for the Bank Windhoek Namibia National Fistball B league title with another three wins in the third round of matches on Saturday.
