  2. How many of you are following the Saffers in the Junior tour of Ireland. I think we have a very good chance for an excelent result this year.
  3. In blustery conditions the junior men’s and women’s downhill got Friday’s competition underway and it was American Richard Rude Jnr who hurtled down the Cascades MTB Park Downhill course five seconds faster than second placed Loris Vergier whilst the women’s title went to Great Britain’s Tahnee Seagrave.

  4. American Richard Rude Jnr produced the run of the day when he claimed the Junior Men's Downhill World Championship title some five seconds ahead of the second placed rider at the Cascades MTB Park in Pietermaritzburg on Friday Photo: Darren Goddard/Gameplan Media The junior women’s clash was the first of the morning and with only five competitors it was a one horse race as Seagrave, last year’s silver medallist, took the rainbow striped jersey in a time of 4:52.001, finishing seven seconds ahead of second placed Australian Danielle Beercroft. The obvious absentee from the event was defending champion Holly Feniak who did not take to the course in the timed runs on Thursday, giving Seagrave the inside line to the title after she ended first in the timed runs. Seagrave’s victorious run was slower than her efforts yesterday however, coming into the encounter, the British youngster was confident that if she kept it together coming down the hill she had a great chance of winning the gold medal. “The win hasn’t quite kicked in yet,” the elated winner said shortly afterwards. “Even though Holly (Feniak) didn’t ride today anything could have happened coming down and I just needed to get down the hill. “I just wanted to make sure that I had a clean run because I was really nervous about crashing! “I was slower than my run yesterday but I wanted to be cautious today because a crash can cost you the title,” she added. The wind appeared to be a factor for many of the riders as they flew down the hill however bronze medallist, Tegan Molloy of Australia, did not find it to be too much of a factor on her run. “The wind wasn’t too bad when I came down because it was quite early but it did pick up a bit later. “It got a little gusty which can put you off but it didn’t really make much of a difference during my run,” the Australian mentioned. In the junior men’s American Richard Rude Jnr blew away the rest of the field to claim the win five seconds ahead of the first placed qualifier Frenchman Loris Vergier and third placed Briton Michael Jones. The American was in fourth place at the first split and really put the hammer down in the final section of the course to claim the gold, knowing only too well what he was going to have to do in order to win. “I made up the time that I missed out on on the pedal section of the course and I had trained for that coming into the event. “I knew that if I did well in that section of the course I would be tired in the end but the end has a lot of jumps and not as much peddling,” the new World Champion said. It was a case of just getting through the run for the American and he was not too aware of what else was happening and the elements that might have been affecting his ride. “I really wasn’t thinking too much coming down, I just wanted to make sure that I kept my ride together and got down the hill as fast as I could!” Australia's Danielle Beercroft pushes herself to the limit during the Junior Women's Downhill final on her way to claiming the silver medal ahead of compatriot Tegan Molloy at the Cascades MTB Park in Pietermaritzburg on Friday. Photo: Darren Goddard/Gameplan Media JP du Plessis was the best placed South African rider who, having occupied the leader’s ‘hot seat’ for a period of time, eventually claimed nineteenth place overall. A mechanical meant that South Africa’s best qualifier, Gregg Brown, only managed to finish in forty-fifth, forty five seconds off the pace. The host nation’s Theo Ngubane became the first black South African to compete in the downhill discipline at a World Championships and was incredibly happy with the opportunity to compete at the biggest downhill spectacle in the world. “It was a miracle that I was even here today,” Ngubane said. “I won a competition two years ago and was able to come watch the 2011 World Cup. I got to meet top riders Troy Brosnan and Sam Hill and now to be here, racing the World Champs myself, is just a dream come true.” Theo Ngubane flies through one of the sections on the Cascades MTB Park's downhill course as he became the first black South African to take part in the Downhill at World Championships when he competed in the Junior Men's Downhill finals in Pietermaritzburg on Friday.

The 1km Junior Men’s Time Trial was represented by Charles Mathewson and Kyle Borchjes. Borchjes also recorded a personal best of 1:07.630, which was 4.501 seconds off the winning time set by Maximillian Dornbach from Germany. Mathewson completed the 1km TT in 1:11.817.

Dannielle Khan from Great Britain won the gold medal.

  6. The 2013 UCI Juniors Track Cycling World Championships continued throughout the weekend with competitors from all over the world competing for the coveted rainbow stripe jersey at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow, Scotland. Click here to view the article
  7. The prestigious event, which caters for boys born between 1997 and July 2003 and girls born 1995 to July 2003, is the largest youth race on the Irish Cycling Calendar. Endorsed by both Cycling Ireland and Cycling Ulster, each body is represented by their own handpicked teams, with teams from as far afield as the Spanish Basque Country and South Africa competing. Paarl-based Yorkshire Cycling Academy was successful in creating an opportunity for their youngsters to participate in the cycling tour, represented by team riders Ayrton De Leeuw, Keanu Slinger, Luc Green, George Perrins, Kyle De Wet and Joshua Francis, the team captain. “The Errigal International Youth Cycling Tour was definitely an eye opener for the young Yorkshire Academy team,” said Yorkshire Cycling Academy Chairman Ian Goetham. “The boys raced hard and all came away from the three-day, 4-stage tour having gained valuable experience.” Experience included the dynamics of working as a cycling team, and the role in the set-up of a team, both on and off the bike. “Our under-16 rider Slinger achieved a top-15 result in stage 2 of the u16 category, and he was also the best Academy rider at the tour. The benchmark was definitely set and the boys will be working harder to achieve better results,” Goetham said. “This is unquestionably a highlight in their short cycling careers,” continued Goetham. “I am proud to say that the Yorkshire Cycling Academy is doing ground-breaking work and its operations are strong and community driven, since it was established in 1919. “With a sound structure, hands-on approach and committed group of individuals investing time, money and resources into the Academy structure, the riders can be assured of success if they truly commit. Exceptional groundwork has been laid to build on and keep the positive momentum at the Academy going,” said Goetham.

  10. Going for gold. Sub-nippers Jenna Ross from Winteron Primary leads Megan Tyrer (23) of Howick Prep and Abigail Don-Wauchope (19) from Winterton in a Spur KZN schools series race presented by Mongoose. Primary and senior school riders will be in action at the Cascades MTB park in Pietermaritzburg, in the build-up to the UCI MTB and Trials World Championships on Saturday 17 August. Photo: Gavin Ryan/Gameplan Media Foresight from the event organisers has seen one leg of the Spur KZN MTB School series presented by Mongoose on Saturday 17 August moved to the Cascades venue, where all the infrastructure for the World Champs will be in place, affording the youngsters the chance to race where their heroes will be in action a few days later. The series caters for primary and high school riders in the Under 8 (Sub-Nippers), Under 10, (Nippers), Under 12 (Sprogs), Under 14 (Sub-Juniors), Under 16 (Youth) and Under 18 (Junior) divisions. For series organiser Ewan Cochran, the opportunity to stage a leg of the series at the World Championship venue will be a major shot in the arm for the development of the sport in the region. Serious business. Nippers, from left, Seth David James (Ridge Primary), Craig De Beer, Heath (Umhlanga College) and Megan Smith (Hillcrest Primary) line up for a Spur KZN schools series race presented by Mongoose. A special race will be staged at the Cascades MTB park in Pietermaritzburg, in the build-up to the UCI MTB and Trials World Championships, on Saturday 17 August. Photo: Gavin Ryan/Gameplan Media "The World Champs vibe will be unbelievable by that stage, and the schools are really excited about getting a chance to race where the legends will be racing a week or so later," said Cochran. Pupils will race in the school colours, and Cochran hopes that schools will come out in numbers to support their athletes. "Some of our high schools, like Maritzburg College, Thomas More College, Northwood, St Marys, and Howick, and primary schools like Highbury and Hillcrest are really supportive of the sport, but we are hoping that this event might get a few more involved," said Cochran. "The schools need to recognise the performance of their top athletes, formalise schools teams, and ideally award colours to athletes to do really well. I really hope some of the schools bite!" The course will range from 2km to 4km and will use the same start and finish and feeder zones that will be used at the Masters and Elite champs later in the month, but will not include the serious technical challenges. "This series is about introducing riders to the sport and making sure that it is exciting and fun, so we won’t be using the hectic rock gardens that you can see on the course!" said Cochran. "The format will be a lot of fun and very spectator friendly," he added. "Our future Burry Standers are there, and we have plenty of talent in the ranks of KZN school boys and girls," he said. Sprog talent Beanie Thies will be a force to be reckoned with at the Spur KZN schools series race presented by Mongoose at the Cascades MTB park in Pietermaritzburg, in the build-up to the UCI MTB and Trials World Championships. Photo: Gavin Ryan/Gameplan Media Local stars include Alan Hatherly and Carlo Marzoppi, both of whom have been named in the national Cycling SA squad and are regulars at the Spur series races, as well as the rising star Beanie Thies. "For these youngsters it is going to be an unbelievable month," Cochran added. "They get a chance to ride on the same venue as the worlds, then they get to see the best local riders against some of the best in the world in the Masters, and then they get to see their legends like Sauser and Kulhavy in the flesh!" Any juniors riders interested in taking part in the Spur series presented by Mongoose, and getting involved in the unique leg of the series at the Cascades MTB Park can contact Ewan Cochran at ewan@multisportschool.co.za or visit www.mongooseschools.co.za. Participating schools will also be able to set up stands and displays at the venue.
