Mangalore, 05 May 2010: Fifty eight-year-old Nobert D’Souza from Kadri is upto a second innings in his career. As a national champion in cycling, he was the toast of Mangalore in his younger days.

Now, back into the track as a senior citizen, he is about to prove that age is no bar to one’s talent. However, in this venture, he has a unique companion. The costliest cycle in India, Trek Madone.

D’Souza had ordered this cycle at the Jyothi cycle company in Mangalore almost a month ago and it was delivered to him on Sunday. In fact, the cycle company had organised a handing over ceremony in which, the Rs 2.3 lakh worth cycle was handed over to D’souza by leading business man G Vishwanath Kamath.

Trek Madone is a light weight cycle made of carbon fibres. It weighs only 6 kgs, but its body, which has a life long guarantee, is stronger than steel. It is a product of Canada based Trek Bicycle Corporation and has 21 gears. This is the costliest ever cycle sold in India.

National champion and national award winner of 1974, cyclist Nobert D’Souza is now planning to compete in the veteran’s category in various cycling competitions and have bought Trek Madone with this prospect. Let’s wish him good luck and hope he brings more laurels to Mangalore.

Bicycles remind the good old days when we were riding bicycle to school with friends which was fun. Bicycle is the most efficient form of human transportation. It can combat climate change, ease urban congestion, and build human fitness, as it might just be the most enjoyable way to get in shape. All the very best to Mr. Norbert DSouza in all your activities.

The Trek Bicycle Company is headquartered in Waterloo Wisconsin (USA), not Canada.
