I am involved with Road and MTB racing. There is a need for mechanics to help teams before and during races. Big teams often have a problem when their regular mechanic is not availble. I want to adress this by starting to train guys to enable them to step in when needed and also to prepare them should they want to do this as a career. The profile is tipical a young person that raced at junior level and maybe after that, do not see a career as a racer for himself and enjoy working on his bike. There is live after racing and there is a couple of guys enjoying the thrill of being part of racing, traveling the world and get paid for it. Anyone interested pm me.
Maybe I am just lucky, but I recieved my racing licence and Managers licence long ago. Maybe I am not lucky and my club has just done what they were suppose to do. My 2 sons had the same expierience as me but they do not belong to my club........so I dont know where the problem is. By the way I belong to the Telkom club
Post from Team Manager on skype."juniors make even more history. team of eight currently in Spain at Vuelta al Besaya, a UCI 2.1 tour. Rode very aggressive and took all 3 podium positions including the KOM jersey. Team manager Austin said - they caught them off guard and a move went clear early - they bunch relaxed as they knew the climb towards the end will still sort things out - but player right into our hands.
Top 3 - in a jnr ranked tour is not too shabby at all.
1st Johann van Zyl, 2nd Christopher Jennings, 3rd Shaun-Nick Bester and Jennings in the KOM jersey. "
