Carrol Boyes is pleased to announce their exciting collaboration with Old Mutual Wealth Double Century by designing and sponsoring the upcoming Old Mutual Wealth Double Century race trophies.
The Old Mutual Wealth Double Century is an exceptional event, where cyclists from all over South Africa participate to conquer the challenge of riding over 200km. The race’s success depends on the ability of riders to be cohesive and work together as a determined team to finish.
Janine George, who creatively leads Carrol Boyes says: “We are proud to take Carrol’s legacy and be the leading design house of bespoke trophies and awards in the industry. Carrol’s vision was to be South Africa’s preferred bespoke trophy and award designer.”
Senior Product Designer from Carrol Boyes, Holly Birkby, has created a unique trophy selection for the four categories that beautifully captures the elements of teamwork and perseverance of the event popularly known as the “DC”. The Old Mutual Wealth Double Century trophy inspiration was drawn from the famous steep inclines of the route as well as highlighting the scenic landscape and flora riders experience during the race. “The extreme inclined shape of the trophy is a metaphor for the challenges to conquer on the route and the final hill-climb of the race – the final test of endurance,” Holly said.
To make this year an even more momentous one, Carrol Boyes is sponsoring an additional Legacy Trophy, an annual floating award recognizing a DC Team that goes above and beyond.
#CBLegacyAward will go to the team of riders who share what has made this DC a magical one.
A team of riders will be representing Carrol Boyes at the race which takes place on Saturday, 27 November 2021 in Swellendam. “Look out for our team, as we tackle this challenging race,” Janine said.
