Bejon Haswell (mechanic in training)

Hi I am Bejon and have recently joined AvantiPlus Blenheim as a trainee mechanic under the guidance of Brendan. 
I have completed four years off secondary school and during my last years of school I have held a couple of part-time jobs working at Home Cafe and Wither Hills Winery cellar door/kitchen.

I love mountain biking and have been riding since I was seven starting in Auckland.  I was riding at Woodhill Mountain Bike park nearly every weekend until I moved down to Blenheim in 2010 and now you will find me most afternoons after work up in the hills on my Avanti Vapour full susupension.  My other passion is photography.

and


Sponsor athlete:  Annabell Latz
Hello,
I'm Annabelle Latz, one of AvantiPlus Blenheim's newest sponsored athletes.  With a love for running, duathlon and triathlon compeition, and the outdoors, I'm thrilled to be on my new Avanti road bike.
Thank you Lynne and Bill for your support and making possible my enjoyable training amongst Marlborough's beautiful landscapes.
I've got plenty of competitions lined up for the rest of the year, including defending my Marlboorugh Marathon title.
I encourage everyone in the region who is fond of getting their heart rate up, to tie up their shoe laces, or strap on their bike helmets, and get amongst it too.
From 10km road races to off road half marathons, and multi sport events of all distances and descriptions, there is something for everyone.
Thank you AvantiPlus Blenheim, let's spread the word of about the benifits of sport, how much it teaches us, and the huge amount of fun and satisfaction it creates.
Enjoy!
Annabelle
