  1. Francois is Mr LeJeune. Contact details here www.dutoitcycles.co.za
  2. Medals should only be awarded for podium placings at Championship events - Club Champs,Provincial Champs, SA Champs or a sanctioned event. End of story.
  3. Sad to see that 99% of the top riders in the province did not ride the event :-(
  4. Great initiative Wayne! Let's see how this challenge goes.
  5. These 2 guys are like my own kids. One is IT Manager for nationwide Jewellery company and the other just started training as a Financial Advisor. In the gym every morning at 5 and on the track or the road at 17:00. 4 days of the working week. Saturday 6:00 they hit the gym and then go for a coffee ride at 8:00. Sunday is rest day. All part of the dream and believing in themselves. Please help them in their next goal. I will pledge my part.
  6. The PPA event is a funride not a race.
  7. Dalderon the management did not inform him that he has a losers final to ride. They then blame the rider for going home. Sad but true.
  8. A huge thank you to all that have contributed to Maroesjka's trip. She can now focus on final training preparation for end of July. Chrispy Team Intellibus - Manager
  9. Realising the “Dream” Coupe du Monde II / World Cup II Glasgow The team known amongst the South African cycling fraternity as “The Bus” was formed in 2008 by team owner, Owen Lloyd, with the initial vision to create a platform for young promising track riders to launch their cycling careers. After its inception in 2008, Owen, approached quality riders and riders that shared his code of ethics and desire to promote his vision. In 2011 Team Intellibus was officially formed as a Top Club Team and initially the idea was to lay the platform for future results, however, 2011 was so successful that the vision and aims of the team had to be relooked at. The decision was made that in 2012/2013 the main aim or “Dream” of the team would be to establish Team Intellibus as the most successful track racing team in South Africa as well as creating more opportunity for the riders to gain access to International Events, while keeping the ethics of the team intact. This week Team Intellibus embark on making this “Dream” a reality, by sending some of the riders to their first UCI World Cup in Glasgow to compete against the best in the world, this is the next step in building the platform for future talent, with a view to sending more young talent to future international competitions. The experience gained by these riders will be shared and handed down to the younger generation of talent already on the team as well as future talent being added to the team. The riders going to Glasgow and their events are: Boyd Roberts – Team Captain – Omnium Reniéll Matthysen – Scratch Jeanne Nell – Sprint & Keirin Support Staff: Owen Lloyd - Mechanic Elna Lloyd - Masseur-Soigneur
  10. SOUTH AFRICAN NATIONAL TRACK CHAMPIONSHIPS 2012 Team Intellibus returned from a very well-run National Championships which was held on the Alexandra Park track in Pietermaritzburg from 26-30 April 2012. The track which was not used for competition in the last 20 years underwent a refurbishment in the past 2 months and riders were impressed with the condition of the track itself. The team had an outstanding championship with all 9 riders adding to the medal tally at the end of the 5 days of racing. Both the Elite and Junior Men categories were well represented with the best riders in the country which led to fast, competitive and exciting racing. The Elite 15km Scratch race was held under floodlights and was one of the highlights of the championships, with a field of 34 riders the 15km race started at a ferocious pace with all the top riders and teams active in the action. Coming down to a bunch sprint, Renièll Matthysen finished a strong 3rd behind Nolan Hoffman and James Louter & being completed in just 18min51sec. In the Elite 1500m young Brent Pheiffer jumped the field at the gun and stayed away to win Gold. He won the trophy which his father, Wayne Pheiffer, won in the year he was born, 21 years ago. The Elite Sprint Final was exciting with the event going to a 3rd and final ride between the 2 best sprinters in the country after Jeanne Nell was relegated in the 2nd ride. Unfortunately for Nell, Jean Smith was alert to take advantage and win the final ride and the title, Jeanne Nell made up for this error by winning both the 1km TT in an impressive time of 1:06.1 as well as winning the Keirin Final with ease. In the Junior category Shane Pheiffer won the 1km TT in a time of 1:09.5 as well as silver in the Junior Keirin and Junior Sprints. Maroesjka Matthee, who crashed 1 week before the championships in a motor pacing session, showed her toughness and determination, dominating the Elite Ladies category and winning 6 Gold medals. As a team the results were: · Gold in the Elite Team Sprint (Brent Pheiffer, Jeanne Nell & Boyd Roberts) · Silver in the Elite Team Pursuit (Brent Pheiffer, Hannes Basson, Reniell Matthysen & Boyd Roberts) · Oliver Stapleton-Cotton as part of a combined Junior Team Pursuit won Silver in that event. Individually there were some outstanding performances: · Jeanne Nell – Gold Elite 1000m TT, Gold Elite Keirin, Silver Elite Match Sprint, Silver Elite 1500m · Brent Pheiffer – Gold Elite 1500m, Bronze Elite Keirin, Bronze Elite Match Sprint · Renièll Matthysen – Bronze Elite 15km Scratch, Bronze Open 50km Madison · Boyd Roberts – Silver Open 50km Madison · Shane Pheiffer – Gold Junior 1000m TT, Silver Junior Keirin, Silver Junior Match Sprint · Oliver Stapleton-Cotton – Bronze Junior Elimination · Maroesjka Matthee – Gold Ladies Match Sprint, Gold Ladies Keirin, Gold Ladies 500m TT, Gold Ladies 7.5km Scratch, Gold Ladies 10km Points & Gold Ladies 1500m. · Owen Lloyd – Vets 45-49 - Silver 7.5km Scratch, Bronze Match Sprint & Bronze 1500m -end press release-
