  1. Well - another motivation behind it all seems to be that the organizers use the same podium girls as in the Vuelta Espana
  2. Jennings took 5th place in his first roadrace in EU which was stage one of the Tour du Pays de Vaud yesterday. It is 2.1 tour for juniors and quite a hard tour to start their racing off with-but according to barry they are doing well. Unfortunately Stefano crashed but got back on the bike. Proloque had them a bit wide-eyed as USA took whole podium. All race results can be found on www.tpv.ch Todays stage finish with a 7km climb and hilltop finish. Previously South-africans also competed in the tour in 2005 and 2007.

  4. They will be doing the Cote Picardi in france and ZLM in Holland. not doing ronde van vlaanderen
  5. 5th on GC, 28secs behind Guldhammer from Denmark who is leading the tour. 4th in points competition with same points (20) as Gastauer from Luxembourg who is lying 3rd. But Guldhammer had 2 stage wins - points now 58 for him. http://www.edosof.com/2009/nacoes/Breeze2009-03-28 09:35:17
  6. Jaco currently competing at Grand Prix Portugal U23 Nations Cup with the UCI. Stage 1 - 8th Stage 2 - 3rd! GC for the moment unknown.
  7. I have just received a message from Barry in Malaysia to say that Jaco Venter went in a 3-man breakaway and took the first points and KOM point. With 50km to go to the line, they had 3 minutes lead and JACO WILL BE WEARING THE KOM JERSEY AFTER DAY 1!!!!!!
  8. Give me your postal address - will send you some replacements
  9. And I am amazed at young firstyear van Zyl to be up there - next year is going to be lekker!
  10. Hagar - you can phone Dewald: 083 348 6249. He is a rep in the WP and would be able to assist with teh Garmin / Avnic person who assist with the Sportsmans Wearhouse in that are.
  11. Since I see an update on the track and none for the road - here I go. 3 of the riders, Johann v Zyl, Christopher Jennings and Clinton Barrow has spend all their time since the jnr tour in Heidelberg by myself and Barry. Taming the winter as Heidelberg can be freezing at times. (Yes, I can already hear the question - they are still in school and studying daily). They had really hard training up to last week Sunday and are now entering their tapering preperations after a week of recovery. Johan van der Merwe has opted to stay in Potch and trained with the riders from the UCI on several occasions. Rourke has just returned from MTB worlds and will be off to GP tomorrow to join the team. As from Monday 30th to Friday 4th July, myself and the team manager, Tony Harding, will accompany the team as well as 2 of the 3 reserves (HB Kruger & Willem Jordaan)to Graskop for some teambuilding leading up to worlds. The 3rd reserve, Avery Arendse, is with the track team doing preperations. After the training camp the starting team will stay together up to Worlds and we will go down on 10 July already - please hold thumbs for the weather. The 2 timetrialers (Paul v Zweel & Tiaan Swart) are also travelling down with Carol Austin to CPT from 30 June to 4 July checking out the route and also doing the last setup preperations at the velodrome. Hopefully we will see some of you guys at the opening of the junior worlds in CPT 12 July!! Come support these boys - they have really worked hard the last 3 months!
  12. Just got an sms to say that Rabie is wearing the red jersey for best young rider after today's hilltop finish!
  13. Hi Is there possibly anybody who has a Garmin Edge that could do the route of the Worlds Junior TT in Paarl for us. I need the actual file. Thanks.
  14. Well I have to be honest, maybe it is for the good of cycling SA's future. Neither Nick, malcolm or Ian, even Neil is any way going to deliver any medals at worlds champs or olympics anytime soon - actually never. So as Doug says - he will look to the future. Focusing on a younger team and building towards 2012 and 2016 should in my eyes get priority now from any team in RSA, infact I believe CSA should put down some rules to pull in younger riders. Ryder plans to support, already supporting as well, the girls, more U23s and BMX SA is in my eyes a better investment. Maybe he actually told the old folks this and that is why they upset. I dunno, but in anycase looking at the job Ryder's younglings (Thompson / Kinnear and Braddie) are doing in Canada - he seems to be on the right track.
  15. Road comm is Andre Engelbrecht
