Tough route but so it should be for SA’s.
Basically 20km 400m /lap made for some tough racing.Just my 2c after watching the different age categories.While it was fantastic to see the talent(and I’m talking about male and female)coming thru,it is also interesting to see who IS NOT on the level.
To parents out there who have youngsters who have dreams of a career in cycling.If your youngster is 30 min off the pace,or getting lapped,or getting passed by the 40+ Ladies they do not have a future in cycling AS A CAREER.Please make sure your kid has a plan B.I was shocked to see so many youngsters with 200k bikes, all the backup from mom and dad, way off the pace.
Yes there is a few young talent coming thru male and female.
It still remains very little.
