  1. We're a group of approximately 30 young adults between the ages 21 - 35 highly excited to cycle the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge in November this year. We are all not professional cyclists but wanting to cycle for a cause, particularly Joint Aid Management http://www.jamsa.co.za - They are also listed on the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge Ride For A Purpose. I write to you to ask whether you would be able to assist us with finding a place for bicycle and equipment rentals leading up to the event. We are also keen to train with any team and join some of the tours you or they may be affiliated with. We would be grateful if you can assist us whichever way you can, even if it is referring us to someone who can add more value to the cause, where you may not be able to. Your ideas, advice and expertise are more than welcome. I hope to hear from you soon. Sincerely, Khobe 081 728 4002
  2. Port Elizabeth’s former champion Anriette Schoeman will turn out for Team Bestmed-ASG at the 947 Cycle Challenge in Johannesburg on Sunday. The 39-year-old, who usually competes as a solo rider under the Bestmed banner, said she was delighted to be linking up with the team for one of the country’s premier national road classics.“The support from Bestmed as a brand is incredible,” said Schoeman, who won the 947 Mountain Bike Challenge at the weekend. “I have been with them for three years now and their support through good and bad times has been at the next level.” Facing a strong field of national and international riders, Schoeman said team cohesion would be essential to give them a chance of victory in the 94.7km race. “The aim for the whole team will be to stick together and to look after each other in the last third of the race so that we can possibly get someone in a break or in the sprint.” Having won in 2008, she said she was always motivated to do well in the high-profile race. “This event provides good coverage for the brands that support me so my goals are always to do well and to get onto the podium if possible.” As a previous champion, Schoeman is well qualified to assess the challenges. “It’s a hard route so you need to come into the race prepared and trying to peak at the right time. “With it coming so late in the season, there is always the possibility of being tired or injured.” The multiple former national road champion rated the Cycle Challenge as one of the best races to win. “It has always been one of my special races and it’s the best feeling in the world to end your season on a high by winning or getting a podium at the 947.” Schoeman said she had done several races in the build-up to this year’s event, with the recent mountain bike race helping her to cope better with the effects of racing at altitude. “I do mountain biking to complement my road racing and I have enjoyed the fresh mental approach. But my first love and focus will always be the road.” Despite many successes over two decades, Schoeman remains motivated to do as well as she can. “I ride my bike because I love it and I find that reason enough to continue competing. I’m driven by good results and as long as I can keep up I will definitely keep trying. “As you get older you lose some of your natural ability but gain other benefits and you have to adjust your riding style and training accordingly. “You have to listen to your body and recovery becomes more important.”

  4. After sprinting to a podium spot in last month’s Bestmed Satellite Classic, Andrea Steyn is excited to be working with Team Bestmed-ASG again when the 947 Cycle Challenge takes place in Johannesburg on November 20. Click here to view the article
  5. Andrea Steyn will be linking up with Team Bestmed-ASG for the 947 Challenge on November 20 Invited by team manager Owen Botha to join the squad for selected races, the 32-year-old from Monavoni in Centurion, who is primarily a triathlete, linked up with the outfit for the first time at the Satellite Classic near Hartbeespoort Dam.They helped her finish third behind national star Lise Olivier and Ethiopia’s Eden Hailemariam and she said she was looking forward to benefiting from the team ethic at one of South Africa’s leading national classics. “It was great to have a following vehicle – for the first time ever. I’m not used to that,” said the former African triathlon champion with a laugh as she reflected on her ride at the Satellite Classic. “The team was very supportive, especially in the first part of the race. You just feel so comfortable if you have someone to assist you if you need to go to the front." “They are a wonderful bunch of girls and I’m looking forward to riding with them again at the 947.” Steyn notched up fifth place in last year’s 947 Cycle Challenge and said she was hoping to improve on that. “Things worked out quite well for me last year and my objective this time is to stay with the front bunch until the end because it can get quite tough towards the finish." “But there are so many things that can play a role in cycling so you can never be sure what might happen.” With her focus on triathlons, in which she competes on most weekends, Steyn she had not been able to train as much on the bike as she would have liked. However, she felt she was in “reasonable shape”. “The Bestmed Satellite Classic was a good test and I was a bit surprised I had such a good race. There was a long climb when seven girls broke away and I managed to stay with them so I’m happy with my form." “I’m doing a lot of cycling now so hopefully that will help me to get an edge in the 947.” With Ashleigh Moolman Pasio – who placed 10th in the road race in Rio – not defending her title due to injury, Steyn singled out Olivier as the rider to watch. “Whoever can climb and have strong legs towards the end is going to play a huge role,” she said. “Lise is very strong at the moment. She has done a lot of cycling in Spain and to me she is really a hot favourite.”
  6. Eighteen-year-old Stefan de Bod (MTN-Qhubeka Feeder Team) was the youngest rider to claim victory at the 2015 Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge in a well-executed race with his team in Gauteng on Sunday 15 November. Click here to view the article
  7. Racing in his first year as an Elite rider, the Stellenbosch local – who turns 19 today – won the 94.7km race ahead of teammate Clint Hendricks with Daryl Impey (ORICA-GreenEDGE) in third place. (From left) Orica-GreenEDGE's Daryl Impey, who came in at a well-fought third place, chats with MTN-Qhubeka Feeder Team's Stefan de Bod (first) and Clint Hendriks (second) to MC Paul Valstar after the 2015 Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge Elite Men's race in Gauteng on Sunday 15 November. Photo: Supplied Listed as the biggest moment of his cycling career, De Bod said that it was a good race and the first race that he has been in that was planned from the beginning to the very end. “We had a clear strategy. The plan was for me to go with 3km to go, which worked perfectly.” Speaking about his uncertainty for the 2016 season since the Feeder Team will be without a sponsor, De Bod said: “This is the last race in the Feeder Team for now – no one has contracts for a bigger team next year. It was a bit emotional to leave the team house in Potchefstroom because we all grew close as a family there. Last year I was still a junior and I’ve learned a lot this year and can only say thank you to JP van Zyl, because he taught me so much. If it wasn't for him, I probably wouldn't have won today because he told me exactly where to go.” Second placed Hendricks was pleased with how the race unfolded according to plan. “The bunch stayed together until Steyn City and then our team turned up the heat. In the last 6km, Jacques Janse Van Rensburg (Team MTN-Qhubeka) put the pressure on. We prepared well for this race in the last month or so - this race was a big goal for the team. We looked at the course and the last 6km, in every single bit of detail, and decided on where we were going to attack and Stefan planned it to perfection. For me it was to follow the counter. Luckily I had the legs to do that and it was fantastic that we took the victory!” Impey, who is back on home soil, has recently started his training programme and was happy with his third place. “I’ve only started training now and surprised that I was okay in the end. These two guys and their team did a good ride. “The local standard of racing is improving; especially when the young guys get more opportunities, that’s going to raise the level and the standards of racing. Next year, I hope that the sponsors do come to the party because it would be a shame if the younger guys don’t get the opportunity to have that bridge to Europe.” For more information on the Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge, visit: www.cyclechallenge.co.za Summary of Results – Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge Elite Men’s Race 1.

  8. South Africa is abuzz amidst the arrival of three prominent international women’s cycling teams, African teams and local women’s teams ahead of the 2015 Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge taking place in Gauteng on Sunday 15 November. The first ever UCI 1.1 Women’s road race will see these great women cyclists competing for all-important UCI points in their attempt to strengthen their chances for Olympic places for 2016.

  9. The opportunities for the growth of women’s cycling in and around Africa are becoming greater. Having a UCI 1.1 category women’s race on the continent will give South Africa and it’s neighbouring countries a chance to compete against acclaimed international cycling teams, elevating the experience and development of women’s cycling on the continent even further. South Africa is abuzz amidst the arrival of three prominent international women’s cycling teams, African teams and local women’s teams ahead of the 2015 Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge taking place in Gauteng on Sunday 15 November. Photo: supplied. Cycling South Africa Women’s Commission Director, Lise Olivier, is constantly driving her passion and energy on the bike, into projects that encourage and embrace the development of women’s cycling in and around the country. She says, that this race status could not have come at a better time for South African women cyclists. “This year has been incredibly historic for women’s cycling in the country and Africa, and having a UCI 1.1 women’s race here on Sunday is the best way to end the 2015 season,” she said. Olivier mentioned that the talent witnessed over the past few months from women cyclists around Africa has been amazing. She spent time at the WCCA women’s training camp last month, and had this to say: “The ladies that I spent some time with at the World Cycling Centre Africa’s women’s training camp are remarkable. It was incredible to see them so eager, and all helping and teaching each other in order to better themselves. I hope that in the future we are able to accommodate more and more women cyclists from around the continent.” When speaking about how far women’s cycling has come in South Africa, Olivier said: “Five years ago when I lined up on the start line of my first African Continental Championships in Rwanda, there were only six or seven women that raced, representing two countries. In February this year, there were 30 women from 14 different Africa countries. And it remained consistent with similar numbers at the African Games in Brazzaville this year. The talent at the second training camp at the UCI World Cycling Centre Africa is incredible.” Two time Olympic gold medallist and multiple World Champion, Marianne Vos, said that the women would be exposed to new race tactics that will come into play during the race. “The short 94.7km distance and bigger field made up of high level cyclists will be fast from the start. I expect to see that the race will explode on the first proper climb. The length of the route lends itself to early attacks.” South African women’s cycling ambassador and pro cyclist, Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio of the Bigla Pro Cycling Team, said that for the younger women and girls in the sport, to be part of a race of this size is really great and shows what the level of cycling needs to be in order for them to achieve top results. The 2015 Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge brings the streets of Johannesburg alive with electricity, passion and excitement of cyclists and supporters each year. This year will be the first year that the women’s race has the UCI 1.1 prestige attached, resulting in an even larger international attraction. For spectators, this is a chance to witness the talent of some of the greatest women cyclists in Africa and the world battling it out on the streets of Johannesburg.

  10. This year, the women’s race has been granted UCI 1.1 status by cycling’s global governing body, which should draw one of the strongest feminine fields in the history of the event as a number of Olympic hopefuls try to qualify for Rio in 2016. Four-time champion Anriette Schoeman (Africa Silks-Bestmed) will be a guest rider for Team Bestmed-ASG at the Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge in Johannesburg on Sunday.

  11. For ten young cyclists from the Legadima Cycling Club in Zandspruit Informal Settlement, Gauteng, the forthcoming 2015 Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge is the highlight of their year. For many of them, this will be their first time participating in this prestigious event, courtesy of the Pedal Power Association (PPA). Click here to view the article
  12. David Baloyi, Given Mkwayi, Happy Mkwayi, Ephraim Zimbili, Johannes Malejane, Freddie Mkwayi, Reginald Kiti, Classwell Muleya-Ptazwe, Ephraim Monageng Matsemela and Malekutu Jack will be joining celebrity ‘Safe Cycling’ ambassadors DJ Fresh and Gugu Zulu in the PPA’s “Stay Wider of the Rider” start group at the race. “Youth cycling is a particular focus for the Pedal Power Association,” explained PPA CEO Robert Vogel. “A bicycle allows youngsters to explore and channel their energies in a positive manner. We are pleased to support an enthusiastic and passionate group of riders such as Legadima and wish them luck and fun at the Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge.” The team will be riding in PPA’s highly visible “Stay Wider of the Rider” cycling shirts and brand new helmets, also sponsored by the PPA. For these youngsters, cycling has been a lifesaver which has given them something positive to focus on. "Cycling has become a safe space for me to destress and refresh my mind,” explained team member Reginald Kiti. “When I am with the team, I feel at home with them; it feels like a community. We have grown as a team. We look out for each other, and that helps us to bring positive things out of our circumstances," he added. The enjoyment of a healthy lifestyle, linked to fitness and the camaraderie on group rides has become a priority in the Legadima team’s lives. "Cycling means a lot to me. It changed my life into a positive one. If it wasn't for cycling, in the community that I live in, I would be doing drugs or alcohol. It has taught me the importance of teamwork, the desire to help others, and endurance. It's a great reason to stay off the streets and away from the bad things around me. It taught me discipline and the importance of time management. Even if I don't ever win races, I still praise myself for leading a healthy lifestyle through cycling," said team member Freddie Mkwayi. “We are honoured to have DJ Fresh and Gugu Zulu riding in support of our ‘Stay Wider of the Rider’ campaign, and that they are role models for the Legadima team,” Vogel said. “We appeal to cyclists and motorists alike to share the road in a respectful manner and to always be mindful of each other whenever they are out on the road.” The Pedal Power Association, with more than 15 000 active members, is a Public Benefit Organisation committed to promote cycling and the interests of cyclists. “Our influence and interest spans across recreational road and off-road cycling events and initiatives; supporting cycling community projects; lobbying for the interests of cyclists' safety and rights; assisting communities to develop through cycling; and encouraging our youth to cycle,” Vogel concluded.
  13. The Bigla Pro Cycling Team will be heading to South Africa to race the Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge. The popular mass participation event has for the first time this year received UCI 1.1 status for the women’s race. Click here to view the article
  14. BPCT will be led by former winner Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio, Clara Koppenburg, Doris Schweizer and Sharon Laws. “We’re looking forward to racing in South Africa for the first time,” Team Manager, Thomas Campana said. “This event is important for Ashleigh so we’ve sent a team there to support her. We’re grateful to the organisers for the invite extended to us and we’re looking to make them proud with some great racing at this world class event. They’re one of the biggest events in the world and to make this investment in women’s cycling is great. We’re more than happy to support their endeavours in growing women’s cycling.” Several other international teams will also be taking part as well local and invitational teams from Botswana, Eritrea, Israel, Namibia, Rwanda and Mauritius. The Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge takes place in November in Johannesburg every year with 33000 participants in the road race. “We’re delighted to have the Bigla Pro Cycling Team join us this year,” race organiser, Tanya Harford said. “It’s that time of the year when Cycle Challenge takes over Johannesburg and together with our sponsors, we’re particularly excited for the women’s event. As always we’ve got committed media coverage and great TV exposure, all that will aid the development of women’s cycling.”
  15. The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) is the governing body of competitive cycling across the world and their endorsement gives elite women cyclists the opportunity to earn valuable UCI points in their attempts to strengthen their chances for Olympic places for Rio 2016. The news builds on the event’s already strong focus on female cyclists. Last year, Momentum brought international super-cyclist, Marianne Vos to race in the Cycle Challenge along with Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio, South Africa’s international cycling champion. Vos and Moolman-Pasio took 1st and 2nd places respectively in the 2014 Cycle Challenge women’s race. In addition to riding, Vos and Moolman-Pasio took the time to meet with South Africa’s top female riders to share their insights and advice with them. International super-cyclist, Marianne Vos (left), South Africa’s international cycling champion Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio (right), and Cycling SA's Women's Commission Director, Lise Olivier (centre) at the 2014 Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge women’s race, which has been granted UCI 1.1 status for the 2015 event. Photo: supplied. The Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge, in its 19th year, caters for over 33,000 participants through the closed roads of Johannesburg and has always been sanctioned and supported by Cycling South Africa (Cycling SA) who has actively lobbied the UCI, on behalf of the event, to gain the 1.1 status. Commenting on the race’s status, Mike Bradley, General Manager of CyclingSA, said: “Cycle Challenge becoming a UCI sanctioned event in 2015 could not have come at a better time, as the event will offer an opportunity to female racers to earn valuable UCI points in their attempts to strengthen their Olympic berths for Rio in 2016. There are various conditions that need to be met for an event to be UCI sanctioned, including a level of prize-money, which 947 already surpasses, as well as having at least five different nationalities competing. CyclingSA has shown their full support for the ranking of the event by stepping in to assist the teams with rider accommodation and logistics, as well as extending invites to African countries. The UCI’s World Cycling Centre in Africa will also be hosting a women’s only training camp for African riders leading up to the event. This is great for Africa, but in particular for our South African women.” Tanya Harford, CEO of Harford Sports Promotions, and Cycle Challenge Race Director said, “This groundbreaking news is another step in the right direction for the Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge. The UCI status will attract international interest as riders search for opportunities to earn UCI points prior to the Rio Olympics next year. Our currency, climate, complete road closures, Joburg’s warm welcome and the riding terrain adds to the attractiveness and the reason why we already see so many of the world’s best riders and teams out here in SA on a regular basis. An influx of the world’s best female cyclists can only add to the calibre and excitement of the race.” Carel Bosman head of Sponsorships at Momentum said, “We have always been very supportive of women in sport and especially women in cycling. We are currently sponsoring Ashleigh Moolman Pasio and have in the past been involved with the Momentum Toyota Woman’s Elite Team. We are very proud of the UCI announcement and the added stature that this brings to the event. We look forward to welcoming some of the world’s best elite teams to compete in South Africa." The Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge and CyclingSA also applied to have the men’s race granted a UCI status for a chance to boost their UCI points on the continent, but with the Tour du Rwanda taking place the day after the 2015 Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge, this was declined by the UCI. The Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge takes place on 15 November 2015 at the Riversands Commercial Park, entries close 31 August 2015. To enter go to www.cyclechallenge.co.za Follow the event on Twitter @momentum947 #CC2015 or on the Facebook page, Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge.

  17. What is the ‘Stay wider of the rider’ campaign? The Pedal Power Association is a Public Benefit Organisation committed to promote cycling and the interests of cyclists. Our new ‘STAY WIDER OF THE RIDER’ campaign launched in February 2015 ahead of the 2015 Cape Town Cycle Tour. It aims to create maximum awareness amongst all road users, especially motorists, which will hopefully lead to safer roads for all cyclists. Join thousands of supporters and pledge your support for the PPA Safe Cycling campaign by riding in a PPA STAY WIDER OF THE RIDER jersey at this year’s Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge.Visibility is a key issue that contributes towards cycling accidents on our roads. The new “Stay Wider of the Rider” safe cycling jerseys are highly visible and include the simple “Stay Wider of the Rider” message, says chairman of the Pedal Power Association, Steve Hayward. “It is our responsibility as drivers to become more aware and tolerant of other road users,” says Hayward. Statistics show that 84% of cycling fatalities on our roads are caused by cyclists being hit by a motor vehicle from behind or when a vehicle underestimates the speed of a cyclist and turns in front of the cyclist. Cyclists have almost no protection when they are involved in an accident, so by giving them adequate space on the roads, motorists can avoid accidents that can cost precious lives. The PPA launched the very successful ‘Cyclists Stay Alive at 1.5’ campaign back in 2011 which resulted in a law promulgated in 2013 in the Western Cape which states that motorists must pass cyclists with a passing distance of (at least) 1m. Through the STAY WIDER OF THE RIDER campaign, PPA urges motorists to obey the law and pass cyclists at a safe distance of at least 1 metre or more. Top South African celebrities DJ Fresh, Joel Stransky, Gugu Zulu, DJ Suga and Liezel van der Westhuizen all support the campaign, assisting to deliver a powerful message in support of safe cycling via the media. Come ride the Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge with us and show your support for Safe Cycling in South Africa. How to enter: The only requirements for being accepted into the start group is entry to the Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge www.cyclechallenge.co.za and to ride the event in a PPA ‘Stay Wider of the Rider’ jersey.Spots for the SC group will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. You apply online at www.pedalpower.org.za for a spot in the start group once you have entered the challenge at the same time as buying your PPA ‘Stay Wider of the Rider’ jersey (which you can collect from the PPA stand at the Expo). Support our campaign and help us keep cyclists alive on our roads.
