Cape Town – Prince Albert of Monaco put foot when taking part in the first ever Riviera Water Bike Challenge from Nice to Monaco.

The competition consisted of 20 professional athletes and 30 amateurs grouped together in 10 teams who race 21km on water bikes.

All funds raised go towards the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, which is aiming to build an aquatic rescue centre in Burkina Faso - the first of its kind in West Africa.

Along with Prince Albert, other competitors included South African Olympic swimmer Ryk Neethling and retired SA rugby player Percy Montgomery.
