Photo: Stuart Pickering/Cycling Direct. The 14-lap, 179.5-kilometre race began with the usual early tactics and attempts at breaks from the bunch, but the first real move of the day was that of Jacques Janse van Rensburg, Willie Smit, Carl Pasio, Ed Greene, Calvin Beneke and David Maree who formed the "leading six" just 20km in. Missing in action today was Daryl Impey, who was attending his brother’s wedding, as well as Louis Meintjes and 2016 Road Race Champion Jaco Venter, who withdrew due to illness. Long into the race was when de Bod took off and was soon joined by Janse van Rensburg. Another hot topic on the day was Willie Smit, who not only was part of the initial breakaway group of six riders, but also came across the line in third place to claim the bronze medal and his second podium at the championship. "The team was phenomenal today. We had a plan in the morning and I think the race pretty much went to plan," said Janse van Rensburg The Elite Men's podium (from left to right) Willie Smit, Reinhardt Janse van Rensburg and Stefan de Bod at the 2017 SA Road Championships in Wellington on Sunday 12 February. Photo: Stuart Pickering/Cycling Direct "Everything worked out really well. Guys like Willie Smit were very impressive today, it's good to see the local guys coming through. But I'm very very happy to take this jersey to Europe," he concluded. The u23 title was claimed by De Bod, with Nicholas Dlamini grabbing the silver medal and Morne van Niekerk coming over the line in third. "It was amazing team work out there today,” said De Bod. "It was windy and it's not exactly a route that suits me, so I'm pretty happy to have pulled it off. I knew I just had to go full gas and see who follows me. In the end it worked out very well." In the 128.7km U19 Men's race, Jason Oosthuizen finished in first place ahead of Devin Shortt in second and third placed Ryan Terry. "It was tough at the beginning of the race, because having won the time trial, and having defending champion Devin Shortt there - the guys know that we were strong so they weren't letting us get away," said Oosthuizen. With three laps to go after catching the main break Oosthuizen said that it was just a defending game until the end. "With 150m to go I just put my head down and did what I needed to do," he said.

  3. Cooler, but still very warm Western Cape temperatures greeted the Elite, U23 and Junior Women at the start of their Road Races for the 2017 South African National Road Championships in Wellington on Saturday 11 February. Team Demacon’s Heidi Dalton rode away to take both the Elite as well as U23 Women’s titles after claiming the U23 Time Trial win on Thursday. Click here to view the article
  4. Heidi Dalton raced across the finish line to take the Elite Women's and U23 Road Race victory at the 2017 SA Road Championships in Wellington on Saturday 11 February. Photo: Stuart Pickering/Cycling Direct. The 127,8km course, which consisted of ten laps around the Lady Loch circuit through farmlands and vineyards, offered something new on each lap. The first break attempt came from Sanet Coetsee, 19km into the race, but was quickly swallowed by the bunch. Michelle Benson then made an attack at 28km, in but was soon also caught. The real fighting began 49km into the race, where Demacon’s Elmarie de Wet kept her breakaway (often over two minutes ahead) for close to 40km. The next 15km displayed aggressive riding and attacks from Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio and An-Li Kachelhoffer, and soon, there was a lead bunch of eight riders, which included Dalton, Yzette Oelofse, Juanita Venter, Chane Jonker and Samantha Sanders. More attacks by Moolman-Pasio and Kachelhoffer were seen, but soon both riders were back in the bunch. The Elite Women's and U23 Road Race took place in the stunning setting of Wellington at the 2017 SA Road Championships on Saturday 11 February. Photo: Stuart Pickering/Cycling Direct At the start of the last lap, Dalton broke off the leading group to ride solo and open up a gap. Her time gaps began to grow from 37 seconds, to 47 seconds, and before long, close to two minutes ahead, and rode to victory over the line in a time of three hours, 43 minutes and 37.572 seconds. On her victory, Dalton said: “Today was absolutely awesome, I mean, I’m still under 23 so the main goal was to get the under 23 jersey, but to get both of them is just absolutely incredible. I’m really, really over the moon. I gave it everything I had and I’m really enjoying this moment.” Dalton spoke of teammate Elmarie de Wet who worked hard for the team as well. “She went up the road for a couple of laps and we sat on and relaxed little bit while she gave it her all” said Dalton. Elmari de Wet worked out in front for 40km in the Elite Women's and U23 Road Race at the 2017 SA Road Championships in Wellington on Saturday 11 February. Photo: Stuart Pickering/Cycling Direct. “My other teammate Carla (Oberholzer) covered a lot of moves out there as well. My team manager, Dave, has been absolutely incredible and been with me forever, so it was really just a team effort today and I’m super chuffed to be the SA Champ,” she added. Second position in the Elite Women’s race went to An-Li Kachelhoffer (Bestmed ASG), with Time Trial Champion Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio (Cervelo Bigla) crossing the line in third. Michelle Benson won the silver medal in the U23 Women’s Road Race. “Today was hot, and very hard,” she said. Benson added that after she had seen Dalton had a chance of the win, she tried her best to stick as hard as could in order to get the second spot on the podium. Video highlights: In the U19 Women’s race, Ashley Parsons, who had arrived from Egypt just one day prior to her race, claimed the gold medal, with Tiffany Keep coming in behind in second place, and Elne Owen in third.

When asked about how she pulled it all off, Parsons said: “I had yesterday afternoon to gather my things. I think for me it was important to keep myself together mentally – especially knowing that I had to fly for 12 hours and then race the next day.” Parsons spoke about her recent participation in the World Cycling Centre training camp in Egypt and said: “Personally I think it was one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made. It was a big jump for me to miss school, but I gained a lot of experience and the training was very hard. It obviously helped a lot because, here we are today.” Second placed Tiffany Keep, who grabbed the Time Trial gold said she was very nervous coming into the race. “Some of the girls in the race today didn’t race in the Time Trial so I didn’t know where they were in terms of form. It started off at a great pace and there were a few attempts at breakaways and attacks. Nobody managed to get away because of the headwind. “I tried so hard to pull away when it came to two kilometres to go, but we all were in sprint mode by then. I ended up coming next to Ashley Parsons, and ended up finishing about a wheel length behind her. I’m happy for her, though – she raced so well in the end. All the other girls did really out there today.” The Elite Women's podium (from left to right) Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio (third) Heidi Dalton (first) and An-Li Kachelhoffer (third) at the 2017 SA Road Championships in Wellington on Saturday 11 February.

  5. Cycling South Africa regrets to report on the unfortunate incident involving a cyclist and heavy motor vehicle on during the SA National Road Championships on Wednesday 8 February 2017. Click here to view the article
  6. Paul Meinking was taking part in the Men’s 60-64 Time Trial event on Wednesday afternoon when the incident took place. The driver of the heavy vehicle turned across the path of the rider into a nearby property, but then attempted to reverse back out of the driveway. It was here where Meinking (head down and focused on his race) did not notice the vehicle reversing ahead of him and collided into it. Meinking was assisted immediately by race emergency personal and taken to the nearest hospital. He is in a stable condition. Thank you to ThinkBike and the BMW Club Marshalls for keeping our riders safe, and to the swift response of the Helivac crew. Cycling South Africa wishes him a speedy recovery.
  7. International road rider Edward Greene has come home to compete in the 2017 South African National Cycling Championships. In the Chasing Stripes series, Edward will be documenting his own preparation and racing from the event. In the first episode, Edward gives us a taste of his 2016 adventures before turning to his preparation for the SA Road Time Trial race taking place on the Lady Loch course around Wellington in the Western Cape.

  8. Defending Champion Daryl Impey retained his National Time Trial title for 2017 as he crossed the finish with the fastest time of 49 minutes and 14.782 seconds in the Elite Men’s category along the 39.8-kilometre course; and Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio impressed everyone as she got back onto her Time Trial bike for the second time after her cycling accident last year to ride away with the fastest Elite Women’s time of 38:10.896 along the 27.1km route at the 2017 SA National Road Championships in Wellington, Western Cape, on Thursday 9 February.

  9. “Today went well, I’m very happy with the win,” said Impey. The 2016 Time Trial Champ mentioned that he had ridden hard, but smart. “The race went as I had expected it to go, and I was feeling good and my legs are in good shape. It was a really good day,” he said. Daryl Impey retained his National Time Trial title on Day 3 of the 2017 SA National Road Championships in Wellington on Thursday 9 February. Photo: DoubleST Impey was sad to be missing the Road Race on Sunday, but will be attending his brother’s wedding that day. “Of course it is unfortunate that I will be missing it, but family comes first,” he added. Second placed Willie Smit said: “It was mostly all about lap times and just keeping to the same lap times with the highest amount of power possible. With my coach in the car, we were working on the router and just staying at certain lap times. That was basically how you were going to get onto the podium today. “You can try to start fast and stay at that same pace without blowing on the last lap, but it’s quite a gamble out there – you’ve got to hope that you don’t overheat and blow completely. Luckily I managed to keep it together until the end,” he said. In the u23 Men’s race, which followed the same distance as the Elite Men, Stefan de Bod managed to retain his Time Trial title ahead of Nicholas Dlamini in second place and Morne van Niekerk in third. “It was a hard day,” said De Bod. I was feeling really good and the preparation was working well,” he added. Stefan de Bod swooped in to claim another U23 Men's Time Trial title on Day 3 of the 2017 SA National Road Championships in Wellington on Thursday 9 February. Photo: DoubleST When chatting about Sunday’s Road Race, De Bod said that the course doesn’t suit him too well, but that he’s going to give it his all in order to try and claim another jersey. Van Niekerk, who came in third today, said: “The weather really played its part today – it was great out there. It was lucky that we went off early. It was a really good day out in the Cape. I felt good today, and in terms of Road Race, all the sensations are good; it’s going to be a great day as well.” Moolman-Pasio rode hard and consistently well to grab the Elite Women’s title, and was thankful to all involved in helping her recover from her accident in France where she collided with a motorbike in a race. “I’ve been very blessed in my rehab and recovery process – I’ve been in very good hands with Jeroen Swart as my coach and doctor as well,” she said. Moolman-Pasio mentioned how lucky she felt that she had decided along with doctors to take a less conservative approach to her rehab process, which helped her a great deal. “Initially the thought was to be completely off the leg for a whole month, but then as we did more scans and we really saw the proper nature of the fracture, the doctors started to encourage me at two weeks already to start putting more weight on it so I was actually really lucky,” she added. Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio showed the crowds that she is back in the groove as she took the Elite Women's Time Trial title on Day 3 of the 2017 SA National Road Championships in Wellington on Thursday 9 February. Photo: DoubleST She also mentioned how important it is to listen to your body. “Pain was always the guideline. I started to pick things up, luckily faster than I thought, but still slower than what I would’ve done if I was 100% normal, so it’s been a slower build but maybe that’s also a blessing in disguise,” she said. After almost eight years at full-tilt on the cycle racing scene, Moolman-Pasio described the forced rest as a good one. On the Time Trial, she said: “I know that I’m strong, but I didn’t know what kind of form I’m in. I’m also really lucky to have been involved with a team like Cervelo Bigla where there’s such a big focus on Time Trial. I really have become so at one with my Time Trial bike. So it’s a really awesome thing to achieve. “Even though this is literally the second time on my Time Trial bike since I crashed on it – I rode it on Saturday and now again – I’m just lucky that I feel so comfortable on my TT bike and I feel back at home on it. “It felt good out there. I think I also learnt how to pace myself nicely and I’m very happy with the result – its nice to take the National Jersey back to Europe.” Another impressive result in the Elite Women’s Time Trial came from KwaZulu-Natal’s Brittany Peterson, who finished in third place. It was this time last year where she retired from professionally paddling and decided to give cycling a go for a form of fitness. “I began cycling and actually loved it. It was boyfriend and professional cyclist Brendon (Davids) who convinced and encouraged me to give it a try,” she said. Peterson also mentioned that Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio and her husband Carl had had a lot to do with her choice to pursue cycling and, in particular, Time Trial racing. “I really love it and I’ve tried to just improve little bit by little bit. I have found a passion for it so I’m just going to keep on at it,” concluded. Brittany Petersen claimed the bronze medal in the Elite Women's Time Trial on Day 3 of the 2017 SA National Road Championships in Wellington on Thursday 9 February. Photo: DoubleST U23 Women’s Winner Heidi Dalton said the heat was a big factor for everyone out there, not only her. “We were lucky that there was no wind. I’ve just started coaching with Jeroen Swart so I didn’t know what to expect. I came and gave it my best. I’m very happy with how it did go,” she said. Jason Oosthuizen made his intentions very clear in the U19 Men’s race when he posted the fastest time of 38:47.637 on the 27.1km route. Rossouw Bekker was the second fastest finisher in the category, clocking 39:49.682 with Jean-Pierre Lloyd rounding out the podium in third place in a time of 39:58.115. The U19 Women’s race saw Tiffany Keep maintain strong momentum throughout the 14.4km lap to secure the fastest time in 23:55.574. Azulde Britz crossed the line with the second fastest time (24:01.651) with Nadia van Niekerk finishing in third place (25:00.036).

  11. Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio got her season underway in the best possible way by winning the South African individual time trial championships today. The title is Moolman-Pasio’s fourth elite national time trial gold medal after previous successes in 2015, 2014 and 2013. Click here to view the article
  12. More importantly, the result is an indicator of a successful recovery from a hip fracture sustained during a time trial in October last year. "It's awesome to win the title back. I actually haven't really been on the TT bike after the injury last year and I just realised how at home I feel on the TT bike. It's one of the reasons I joined Cervélo Bigla because of the amazing partners we have and the focus on the TT," a delighted Moolman-Pasio said. "The rehab has gone well. There were a few instances where I've been compensating with my back and I've had to back off a bit. There have been obstacles along the way in the recovery but I've learnt to take my time in the recovery, this has been a slower build up than the past which is a blessing in disguise after seven years of racing in Europe and South Africa non-stop without a good break. This result today is good for the confidence to show that things are on track for the year." Moolman-Pasio crossed the line in a time of 32 minutes 10 seconds to average 42.6km/h. She beat her closest competitor by over 3 minutes. The road race takes place on Saturday 11 February, over 128,7km.
  13. The best of Cape Town weather was on display for all at the first day of the 2017 SA National Road and Para-cycling Championships, as it kicked off in Wellington in the Western Cape on Tuesday 7 February. The future generation cyclists all under the age of 18 years, the tandem teams, and some of the country’s most inspirational Para-cyclists brought impressive riding to the Time Trial events.

  14. Smoke from the Bainskloof fire hinted the possibility of poor visibility for the early morning session but fortunately cleared before the start of the first event of the day – the under-17 Boys Time Trials. In the u17 Boy’s race, Ceajay Bosman crossed the line with the fastest time in 21 minutes 44.984 seconds, with Jamie Penfold claiming the second position and Alvin Bronkhorst claiming third on the 14.4-kilometre loop.

Photo: Double ST Coming from Port Elizabeth, Bosman mentioned that he wasn’t used to the hot conditions. “I’m lucky that I rode earlier this morning. It was tough, though,” he said. After claiming the ninth position in his category last year, Bosman mentioned that he was expecting a better result and that he had been working hard at it. When chatting about his upcoming Road Race, Bosman said: “I’m hoping for a podium position on Friday, it’s a very nice route with not too many climbs so I think it will suit me.” Capetonian mountain biker Penfold, who claimed the second position, said that he was just giving Nationals a bash. “I thought that because I live here, and do enjoy riding on the road, I may as well give this a shot,” he said. U15 Girls winner, Chante Olivier said: Today was very hot. The sun was burning everything, and I really didn’t expect to win this race. I really thought Chloe (Bateson) rode brilliantly.” Kelsey van Schoor preps before her Time Trial where she took the win in the u17 Girls category at the 2017 SA National Road Championships in Wellington on Tuesday 7 February.

Photo: Double ST Olivier mentioned that she was looking forward to her Road Race later in the week, but knows that Bateson will give her a run for her money.Kelsey van Schoor took the Championship Time Trial title in the u17 Girls event and was overwhelmed with her result, but also happy at the work she had put in prior to Nationals. “It was tough, it’s never going to be easy when there’s girls that you don’t know,” she said. She mentioned that the most important thing to remember in a Time Trial is to go as fast and as best as you can. The Para-cyclists took to the tarmac at 11:00, which already showed temperatures of late twenties and rising. Once again, the masters of Hand-cycling, Trikes and Cycles showed the crowds exactly what they were made of. Claiming the top position in the Men’s C2 category, Olympian Goldy Fuchs was happy with his result of his Time Trial, considering his bad luck at last year’s National where his chain snapped. “The course is quite close to where I live so I’ve managed to train a lot on this course. It was hot on the roads and the wind had picked up, but the course was in my favour,” he added. Gavin Cowden took the first place position in the Men's C4 Time Trial at the 2017 SA National Road Championships in Wellington on Tuesday 7 February. Photo: Double ST When chatting about his Road Race, Fuchs said: “All I need to do is play it smart, and then hopefully I can ride away with another win.” Hotter and drier conditions have been predicted for the rest of the week, so lots of sun protection and plenty of hydration are highly recommended for athletes and supporters alike.

Egon Campbell took second place with Andrew Stockwell claiming the bronze medal for the second year in a row. Van der Bank, who gets his results from track cycling said: “I actually enjoy road cycling the most, that’s why I’m so happy to have won a national title on the road at last. Now I can claim that I’m a roadie as well.” He mentioned that the major difference between the two disciplines for him was the fact that there are always more weather conditions to factor in during a road race. “That’s the real difference - I feel the wind, the heat, the rain – there’s a lot more to think about,” he added.

Photo: Double ST Racing in the Elite Men’s team for the Road Race, Van der Bank feels that Sunday’s race is going to be a difficult one. “It’s going to be against a lot of the bigger cycling teams. But I think if you play it smart though, the chances of winning are always there. The preparation has been there, so I’m not expecting to win but a podium would be really great,” he concluded.Neil Timm rode his first race in the Men’s 35-39 age group this year, and snapped up the gold medal in the category. He completed the same route as the 30-34 Men (27.1km) in a time of 38:20.948. After a second place in 30-34 last year, Timm was ecstatic. “It’s a challenging route because it’s undulating – you’ve got to watch your power and monitor your effort. I think the wind is always a bit tricky in the Western Cape but I had a good race overall, I’m very happy with it,” he said. Timm felt that the road race is going to be an exciting one. “The course is one of those where small breakaways can get away and get out of sight quite easily and the heat will definitely play a big role as well,” he added. The Men’s 40-44 category was dominated by KwaZulu-Natal’s Kenton Kirkwood, who posted a time of 38:08.373 over the 27.1km distance. He said: “The conditions today were key, really. In the end it came down to who could suffer for the longest.” Kirkwood mentioned that the course was very tough, and that the competitors in his category gave him a hard time out there. “It was well ridden by everyone out there today. I’m very happy with my ride – it’s been a tough season already,” he added. On the discipline itself, Kirkwood said: “We really do enjoy it though, and my sponsors (Bluff Meats Supply) have been very key to this as well. We have a great team in Durban and we are all good friends. We purely do it for the fun of it because we don’t do it for anything else but the passion, which makes it such a pleasure to be here and compete.” Lucas Marthinus Pheiffer was the Champion in the Men’s 45-49 Time Trial, posting a winning time of 39:26.767. He mentioned that the choice of wheel was a tough one. “The wind wasn’t blowing this morning but then it came up and then it died down again so when I went to the start line I carried two wheels with me,” he added. His coach advised him on the larger wheel, which ultimately paid off in the end, and Pheiffer claimed the gold medal ahead of Martin van Wyk, and third placed Graham Hulton. “It was three or four kilometres of hard work and the rest of it was with the wind, so it helped with the bigger wheel,” he added. Lucas Marthinus Pheiffer claimed the gold medal in the Men's 45-49 category Time Trial, with Martin van Wyk in second and Graham Hulton Coker in third at Day 2 of the 2017 SA National Road Championships in Wellington on Wednesday 8 February. Photo: Double ST This is the first time in a while where Phieffer has had four days of rest before a Road Race – he is used to only two after the Time Trial events. “The best result I’ve had is a fifth place, so hopefully I’ll be able to do a bit better in the Road Race this time,” he concluded. The Men’s 50-54 age category was the last of the morning session, and Jackie van Eeden dominated his category in a time of 40:00.467. He stood atop the podium ahead of 2016 UCI Gran Fondo World Championship silver medallist Gwyn Pine (second) and Marius Nel in third.

  20. The Team Dimension Data rider said: “It would be great to defend my title at nationals this year, but if I can’t, as long as it’s someone from our team I'll be happy.” South African National Elite Men’s Champion, Jaco Venter is looking forward to defending his title in his own backyard at the 2017 SA National Road Championships in the Western Cape from 7-12 February. Photo: Cycling SA He is also hoping for a great few months ahead in Europe. “Starting with Catalunya, then onto the hilly classics and hopefully then making it into the Tour de France team,” he added. The Cape Town local says that it’s something special to have the National Championships in the region. “I regularly train out to the Wellington side, so it’s like a home nationals, which I haven’t had in a really long time,” he said. Reflecting on 2016, Venter feels that what he has learnt most about himself in the year is his ability to forget the suffering endured, and how excited and motivated he becomes for each new season. Venter is currently taking part in the Santos Tour Down Under in Australia from 14-22 January. On the Tour, Venter said: “Down Under is always a tricky and hard race because of its high level. It’s my first race of the season as well. I never know what to expect after the training I’ve been doing. I’ve been feeling good on the bike and we've got a good team here so its been great so far and we’re hoping to get onto the podium on the GC with Nathan Haas. We’ve got two more difficult stages so we’ll see how it goes.” Entries for the 2017 SA National Road Championships are open and close on Wednesday 25 January.
