BUCO new title sponsor of the Origin Of Trails

Stellenbosch (Western Cape) – Celebrating its 5th anniversary on Saturday, 25 November 2017 and Sunday, 26 November 2017 the organizers of the Origin Of Trails are excited to welcome BUCO as the title sponsor of Stellenbosch’s mountain bike party of the year, the BUCO Origin Of Trails.

“We are both proud and excited to welcome BUCO as the title sponsor of the 5th annual BUCO Origin Of Trails,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports.  “The BUCO Origin Of Trails highlights and celebrates the fun side of mountain biking.  After a jam-packed season of racing, we invite mountain bikers to rekindle their ‘love’ for this magnificent sport.  Together with our valued sponsors we look forward to hosting a fun, two day mountain bike experience that showcases the gem that is Stellenbosch. ”

At the beginning of 2017 Steinbuild announced the transformation of Pennypinchers into the BUCO brand, merging the two strong building materials brands to form the bigger BUCO.

“Becoming bigger means better deals and allowing businesses to grow with the BUCO brand,” says Michael Ho, Steinbuild Brand Manager.  “In this same manner, we are excited to continue our support of the Origin Of Trails, now the BUCO Origin Of Trails.  We aim to ‘build together’ with our surrounding communities. The main benefactor of the BUCO Origin of Trails is the Stellenbosch Trail Fund which is committed to further developing the trails in Stellenbosch and sealing the town’s reputation as a global mountain biking destination.  The 2016 event was such a great success.  We only received positive feedback, while the vibe and support from riders and spectators was amazing.  We look forward to building on this relationship and are excited to invite all sporting enthusiasts, elite and social, to enjoy the sport of mountain biking in a social setting with family and friends.”
