Giant Loop Racer: Brett Finishes Namaqua African Rally On Top!

By | KTM, Racer | No Comments

Giant Loop Racer, Brett Cummings, just campaigned another race on his Strocam Mining KTM 450RR. This time he entered the Namaqua African Rally, and finished on top of the box!

Shown here prepping his bike for the Prologue.

He swapped lead with fellow racer Kenny Gilbert, in the final stage, but Kenny had to nurse a bad wheel and settled for second place overall. Way to go Brett!

Like many a Rally, the service work is done while the bike is sitting in the dirt, exposed to the elements. Lucky for Brett, there was grass in the Bivouac!!

By | News, Racer, Riders | No Comments

Giant Loop Racer, Brett Cummings, shared his race resume with us (see below) — and included his reasoning for working with Giant Loop.

“Why I will use Giant Loop: When training alone and with no backup, one really needs to make sure that you have all your tools, medical equipment as well as nutrition and snacks with you so you can be fully self-sufficient. With Giant Loop gear, this is made easy!
Regards, Brett”
