  1. -Does anyone have any information about There being a Gauteng time trial champs? -When? where? or does it even exist? -If it does exist what are the entry requirements? Secondly are regional champs a prerequisite for competing in national champs? Any useful information is appreciated Thanks
  2. Do you guys think a TT bike and accessories are worth it compared to only a road bike with perhaps some extra accessories, e.g. TT bars, shoe covers and skin suit? I have a Giant TCR road bike and race on it, but I think it would be nice to also train TT style and also to do the TT races, even though they are not common. Don't want to break the bank, therefore is it even worth it considering the costs and potential time savings? And I have no problem swopping out wheels and pedals (important for one day when I get a power meter) and whatever between bikes if I only get a TT frame and if they are compatible. In essence, could be more like 1.5 bikes than a proper road and proper TT bike. Found these two nice videos which show some aero savings and relevant costs: and E.g. in the second picture you can see an aero frame is very expensive relative to the little aero saving you get while a special skin suit is worth much more in drag and time saving at a relative low cost. Thanks
  3. Kanstantsin Siutsou got the team off to a flying start by time trialing his way to his 4th Belarussian national time trial title on Thursday (23 June) morning. Siutsou completed the 40km course with an impressive average speed of 50km/h to beat Branislau Samoilau (CCC Sprandi) by 16 seconds. Edvald Boasson Hagen was our next rider to race for national honours, as he took part in the Norwegian time trial championships late on Thursday evening. Boasson Hagen, as the defending champion, was pushed all the way top the line this year by Vegard Stake Laengen (IAM Cycling). At the first intermediate time check Boasson Hagen was fastest by around 30". At the 2nd time check the Norwegians traded places, with Boasson Hagen 7 seconds down and then at the 3rd time check, the riders were dead even with the same time. At the finish line though, Boasson Hagen prevailed to win his 8th national time trial title. Daniel Teklehaimanot kept the momentum going on Friday morning when he defended his 2015 title and won the 2016 Eritrean national time trial title in Asmara. It was Teklehaimanot's 3rd national time trial title but the race also went down to the wire as Meron Teshome (Stradalli - BikeAid) clocked a time just 38 seconds slower than Teklehaimanot. Merhawi Kudus secured the bronze medal for our African Team and as the best u23 rider, won the u23 title just as he did last year. Our young continental team rider, Amanuel Gebreigzahbhier, impressed with a 5th place overall and 2nd in the u23 category. The Rwandan national time trial championships which were held in Nyamata on Saturday afternoon, was the last of the time trial events our African Team would participate in. Adrien Niyonshuti made sure it was 4 out of 4 for the Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka camp, as he went on to win Gold. Although Niyonshuti had won the road race title twice before in previous years, the time trial title had eluded our Rwandan star until this year. With the time trial titles now decided, attention now shifts to the road race events which will take place around the globe tomorrow. Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will have riders starting in Eritrea, Rwanda, Norway, Belarus, Great Britain, Austria, Belgium, Ireland and Italy.
  4. Cycling South Africa will be hosting a Junior Selection Race in conjunction with the 2016 UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, on 7-8 May. Click here to view the article
  5. With the road closures and route infrastructure in place for the opening round of the Para-cycling World Cup season, the event organisers will be taking the opportunity to host all Junior cyclists who carry a Full Racing License with Cycling South Africa. Riders will have to compete in all of the races over the two competition days – these being the Time Trial, Road Race and the Criterium. The races will be held on the technical Time Trial and Road Race courses that have been established for the Para-cycling Road World Cup. Route maps and profiles can be seen here: http://www.cyclingsa.com/2016-uci-para-road-world-cup/. All events that will be hosted need to be competed by all participants in order to be eligible for squad selection. The National Selectors will be present and selections will be made over the course of the weekend based on race performances and race results, with every aspect of the racing being monitored by the Selectors. A squad of six Junior Men and four Junior Women will be selected for the European Tour. Dependent on the standard of the racing of the South African squad riders in the European races, a final team will be selected to compete in the 2016 UCI Road World Championships in Doha, Qatar, from 9-16 October. The number of team riders will be dependent on our Nations’ ranking prior to the World Champs. The final time schedules are yet to be finalised. Entries will open on Wednesday 13 April and will be communicated accordingly.
  6. UCI WorldTour rider and defending South African Time Trial Champion, Daryl Impey (Orica-GreenEDGE) clocked the fastest time to claim his fifth National Title on day two of the 2016 SA National Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships in Wartburg, KwaZulu-Natal today. Recording the second-fastest time of the day was U23 competitor Stefan de Bod (Dimension Data for Qhubeka Continental Team), who finished an incredible 12-seconds off Impey’s pace in the 48km race.

  7. Daryl Impey (Orica-GreenEDGE) clocked the fastest time overall to claim his fifth National Title in 01:01:22,37 on Day 2 of the 2016 SA National Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships in Wartburg, KwaZulu-Natal, on Thursday 11 February. Photo credit: Darren Goddard Impey came into the race with high expectations and was elated with his home-soil victory. He stopped the clock at 01:01:22,37. “It’s nice to be back here and there’s always pressure to come back and defend the TT, but it was a lot harder this year – the guys have improved quite a bit. I was pretty confident that I could come in and do a good ride and I’m happy to walk away with it.” Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka rounded out the Elite podium with Reinardt Janse van Rensburg in 2nd place (01:02:06,31) and Johann van Zyl (01:04:11,72) in 3rd. Reinardt Janse van Rensburg's (Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka) time of 01:02:06,31 earned him a 2nd place in the Elite Men's race on Day 2 of the 2016 SA National Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships in Wartburg, KwaZulu-Natal, on Thursday 11 February. Photo credit: Darren Goddard De Bod was the second fastest rider overall clocking an impressive time of 01:01:35,08. His Dimension Data for Qhubeka Continental Team teammates Ryan Gibbons (01:02:35,32) and Keagan Girdlestone (01:03:36,54) rounded out the U23 podium making it a clean sweep for the team. “It’s been a good race, the route suited me perfectly. I won a Road Race title when I was a junior so it’s nice to finally win the Time Trial title as well. We had a look at the route a few days ago and I planned where I wanted to go harder and how I was going to pace myself and everything went well. I had a good team behind me with great support.” Speaking about the upcoming Road Race, De Bod feels confident. “Obviously there’s a few different tactics that play out in the road race and hopefully one of our team will walk away with the title. I’m looking forward to that as well.” Recording the second-fastest overall time of the day and winning the U23 category was Stefan de Bod (Dimension Data for Qhubeka Continental Team) during Day 2 of the 2016 SA National Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships in Wartburg, KwaZulu-Natal, on Thursday 11 February. Photo credit: Darren Goddard Junior rider Gregory de Vink of the LEADout SA team nailed the 24km route to secure his National Time Trial Title in 00:34:27,65. “Everything went according to plan. I came into the event quite well prepared and I had ridden on the course last year so I might have had a bit of an upper hand there. I didn’t start too hard, and everything ran smoothly so I’m just super happy to come out best.” De Vink was not so optimistic about the upcoming Road Race: “That will be a different story - I’ll have to see what’s going on and make the best of the situation. I’ll be well marked and they’re not going to let me go easy, so we’ll see.” Jason Oosthuizen was the second Junior home in 00:35:13,99 with Enno Swanepoel rounding out the podium in 00:35:30,91. The Masters’ Men categories also competed today and Luke Pheiffer, who has placed his full focus full focus on racing against the clock, claimed his seventh Time Trial National Title when he won the 24km 40-44 race today. “I won my first TT in 2007 and just kept coming back. In 2008 I thought I was smart and didn't train that hard and finished third and thought, never again. Then from 2009, I won five titles in a row. And today’s victory is my seventh.” Dimension Data for Qhubeka Continental Team's Ryan Gibbons (01:02:35,32) was the second placed U23 rider during Day 2 of the 2016 SA National Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships in Wartburg, KwaZulu-Natal, on Thursday 11 February. Photo credit: Darren Goddard Cycling South Africa’s General Manager, Mike Bradley, said: “The level of racing has shown a very high standard. It is really interesting to see the U23’s finish in the top five today and yesterday’s women were also strong. It’s also good to see some triathletes coming to participate in the Time Trial. It’s been a great event that has been well supported. The organisation has been very good and the residents and farmers of the Wartburg area have been very accommodating and supportive. It has been a trouble free race.” The Road Race continues in Westville on Saturday and Sunday, starting at 07:00. There is no entry fee to watch this fantastic display of road cycling, but please take note of the road closures and alternative routes in order to get to the race venue timeously.

  8. Keagan Bontekoning gives everything he's got in a race against the clock, finishing 3rd in the U16 Boys' category Time Trial at the 2016 SA National Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships in Wartburg, KwaZulu-Natal, on Wednesday 10 February. Photo credit: Darren Goddard The seemingly gentle route provided its challenges to the competitors with many of the riders talking about the back section and the cruel final kicker hill just before the fast, sweeping downhill to the finish line. Defending Champion Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio (Cervelo-Bigla Pro Cycling) was sorely missed this morning when she withdrew due to falling ill. She is however hoping to recover in time for the Road Race on Saturday where she will embark on her title defence. Taking the Elite Women’s Time Trial title, Juanita Venter opted for a slight change in her equipment prior to the race, which seemed to pay off with a handsome result despite thinking the course was tough. “I decided not to use a disc wheel today and to rather use the 808 because of the climbs. I knew if I could make it up on the climbs and power up the last kilometre then I would have a chance at being on the podium.” Although still early in the season for him, multiple Paralympian and multiple World Champion H5 handcyclist, Ernst van Dyk, powered his way to yet another Time Trial Championship title at the 2016 SA National Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships in Wartburg, KwaZulu-Natal, on Wednesday 10 February. Photo credit: Darren Goddard Coming into the Championship as a relative newcomer, mountain biker Samantha Sanders (Team Valencia) was considered a dark horse and she showed her strength in the TT discipline with a second-place finish in the Elite Women’s race. “After injuries I decided to swap my cycling a little and give road riding a bit if a crack. I got onto a TT bike about two weeks ago and preparation wise, my training was good but I’m not used to the set up of my bike just yet. I just wanted to suss out the scene today and thoroughly enjoyed it and I’ll definitely do another one. I had no expectations today other than to push my own limits.” In the Para-cycling competition, multiple Paralympian and multiple World Champion H5 handcyclist, Ernst van Dyk, powered his way to yet another Championship title. “It’s early season now so I’m just doing all the basics right now and building the foundations for the rest of the season. The route was quick, it was fast but there was a lot of climbing too, which was very deceiving since I didn't ride the course beforehand. My focus was the Time Trial because that is the one that I can measure myself, the road race will be fun.” Celebrity “DJ” Palesa Manaleng (H3) competed in her first National Time Trial after diving into the deep end late last year at the UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup in Pietermaritzburg as her first opportunity to race in a Time Trial. Setting the bar high for herself, Manaleng thoroughly enjoyed the KwaZulu-Natal countryside. Taking the Elite Women’s Time Trial title, Juanita Venter opted for a slight change in her equipment prior to the race, which seemed to pay off during the 2016 SA National Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships in Wartburg, KwaZulu-Natal, on Wednesday 10 February. Photo credit: Darren Goddard “The course wasn't as hard as the World Cup course, but it was faster though. I enjoyed the downhills. Justine passed me and I was so embarrassed but then she is a World Champion,” she laughed. I had a puncture before the start but we fixed it quickly and my ride was event free. I see that I need to do a lot more work and need to ride in more competitions.” London 2012 Paralympian Stuart McCreadie (H3) has returned to the racing scene after taking a break from competing last year. “Even though I didn't compete, I was still riding a lot and putting in that all-important time on the bike with long rides. Coming back now I feel almost rested from the stresses and strains of competition. Today’s route profile looked rather easy, but that back section required quite a lot of work and the road surface was not that smooth in parts. But it was a nice TT course.” Local resident and rising mountain bike star, Frankie du Toit (Kargo Pro MTB Team) enjoyed racing in her hometown on the familiar training hills of the area. “The course pushed you so it made sure that the best rider won,” she said. “I enjoyed the local support.” Men's T2 winner Gerhard Viljoen put in a solid performance during Time Trial at the 2016 SA National Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships in Wartburg, KwaZulu-Natal, on Wednesday 10 February. Photo credit: Darren Goddard Eighty-year-old keen cyclist, Arthur Duncan, returned to compete in the Men’s 75+ class, finishing in second place behind Vincent Kelly. “It was a fantastic race, the course was a little bit challenging but it was really most enjoyable. I’ve got to congratulate the organisers for the actual event and the road management was absolutely fantastic. It was a thrill to be here. The people who inspire me the most are the Para-cyclists – to see them participating, I really get inspired from that!” Cycling South Africa’s Road Commission Director, Bosseau Boshoff, was pleased with the race organisation and the level of racing on the opening day of the Championships. “On the first day of a competition there’s always going to be some teething problems but between the organisers and the Commissaires I think they sorted it out well – the riders had to wait a little bit for their results. It’s nice to see new faces on the podium, which means there’s new blood coming into the sport – it’s refreshing.” In terms of the status of the event, Boshoff added: “Not only is there pride for the riders to compete but there are some UCI points and the national jersey up for grabs. For the riders, it ups their status and their value as a rider. It’s then easier for them to get into bigger teams and build a better cycling career.” Cycling SA Para-cycling Commission Director, Dr Mike Burns explained how the National Champs has many functions. “For example, there about five new riders who have just started Para-cycling, so it was nice to see them compete for the first time. I think we’ve got at least two new riders, Gary Coetzee (C4) and Gavin Cowden (C5), who look really competitive today so I’m looking forward to seeing these new riders shape. Celebrity “DJ” Palesa Manaleng (H3) competed in her first National Time Trial and thoroughly enjoyed the KwaZulu-Natal countryside at the 2016 SA National Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships in Wartburg, KwaZulu-Natal, on Wednesday 10 February. Photo credit: Darren Goddard “It’s also about team selection for the national team that will compete in the very first UCI World Cup of the season in Pietermaritzburg in May. So we will be making the national team selection based on these results. Thirdly, it’s the very first race on the road to Rio, so it’s incredibly important to see how our Rio Squad riders are looking. It’s from this base that we are going to monitor them, then the World Cup in Pietermaritzburg, and so on. Burns said that some of the standout performances for him were Coetzee and Cowden, as well as Tricyclist Gerhard Viljoen (T2). It was so unfortunate that his teammate Goldy Fuchs suffered a broken chain as he started his ride because I would’ve loved to have seen them race. I have a lot of hope for Craig Ridgard (C2) for Rio, and of course I was expecting Ernst and Stuart, Pieter du Preez (H1) and Justine Asher (H2 - both double World Champions) to do well as well, which they did.

  12. Hi guys I'm looking for the best piece of road, preferably flat where I can do a field test. A good, hard time trial like effort. I reckon the distance will be around 10km, maybe more. It will ideally be in the Southern suburbs.

The riders at the Confederation of African Cycling Road Championships were given some respite from the weather on Wednesday for the Individual Time Trials of the Elite Men and Women and it was South African star Ashleigh Moolman Pasio who added a continental champs title to her impressive list of achievements in recent times with Ethiopian Tsgabu Grmay claiming the Elite Men’s title.

  14. It was a historic day for Ethiopian cycling as Tsgabu Grmay became the first man to win an Elite Men's gold medal as he powered to victory in the Individual Time Trial on day three of the 2015 Confederation of African Cycling African Road Championships on Wednesday. // Photo credit: craigdutton.com The men’s Individual Time Trial was just as exciting and with a strong South African contingent the odds would have been in their favour but it was Ethiopian rider Tsgabu Grmay who was the fastest over the two laps to claim the continental crown.

 Moolman Pasio went into the Individual Time Trial with the Team Time Trial winners medal already in her hands and added the individual gold to that when she cruised to victory over fellow South African Heidi Dalton and Aurelie Halbwachs who finished second and third respectively. 

 The Bigla Pro Team rider was happy that she could add another continental gold medal to her impressive record of late and was glad that there was a little bit of a change from the intense heat that the riders had to ride in over the first two days. “Today was a bit cooler than Monday,” Moolman Pasio said. “It was a bit windy and that made the course a bit tougher but it was still a great course and I am glad to get another win for the South African team! “It is awesome that we won the gold and the silver and I am really happy for Heidi because she rode really well,” she mentioned. Recently crowned South African Time Trial and Road Race Champion Ashleigh Moolman Pasio added the Continental Individual Time Trial gold medal to her achievements on day three of the 2015 Confederation of African Cycling African Road Championships on Wednesday. // Photo credit: craigdutton.com Going off last is an advantage in the time trial as the rider has an idea of what time they need to achieve in order to win but it got difficult for Moolman Pasio as she powered her way through the field which meant she was never too sure of where she was going to end up. “I was always going to be racing against myself and when I set off and started overtaking quite a few of the riders in front of me I was not too sure about where I was in the field and what my time was going to be like! “I did feel comfortable throughout so I didn’t feel too much pressure which I hope I can take into the Road Race and we can defend our title as the South African team,” she added. It was a historic day for the Ethiopian team as Tsgabu Grmay became the first rider from the East African Nation to win an elite gold medal at the continental road championships. “I am so happy to be the first person from Ethiopia to win an elite gold!” an elated Grmay proclaimed. “It was a great race for me today and everything went perfectly and my preparation coming into the race had been good so I was confident that I could do well.”
 He was not going to be over-awed by the competition that he was going to come up against and with some cooler conditions out on the course Grmay thought that those played into his hands a bit and gave him the edge that he wanted.
 “I came into the race knowing that I had a chance of winning it if I rode well and everything went smoothly. “It all went to plan and it is great for the whole team who have come out here as well as the federation who have been working really hard for us riders recently and trying to grow the sport back home and so I am happy to give back with this win,” he said with a smile. 

 The race for second in the Men's Individual Time Trial was a tightly fought affair but eventually the silver medal went to Daniel Teklehaimanot from Eritrea and South Africa's Reinhardt Janse van Rensburg finished in third, claiming the bronze medal. Having won gold in the Team Time Trial on Monday, Eritrea's Merhawi Kudus added the Under 23 Men's Individual Time Trial gold to his growing list of achievements on day three of the 2015 Confederation of African Cycling African Road Championships on Wednesday. // Photo credit: craigdutton.com The Under-23 Men also took to the Time Trial course on Wednesday in pursuit of that individual gold medal and when the racing was done it was Eritrean and Team MTN-Qhubeka star Merhawi Kudus who claimed the spoils as he added this title to the Team Time Trial gold that he won with his national team on the first day of the competition. The silver and bronze medals in the Under 23 Men’s Individual Time Trial went to Valens Ndayisenga from Rwanda and Adil Barbari from Algeria respectively.

  15. Photo credit: www.craigdutton.com. The South African successfully defended her title with a time of 46’30” over 34 kilometres to average just over 41km/h. The victory marks the third successive year that she’s won the title. Second place went to Cherise Stander while Heidi Dalton won the bronze medal. “I’m very happy to defend the title especially as we have a big focus on the time trials this year at Bigla. I’m very happy to have the national title to take overseas. From the start when I saw the course I realised it’s the type of course that suited me. It’s a great combination of technical, climbing and some fast stretches. I put in some really hard efforts on the climbs then a bit of recovery through the technical sections and fast downhill stretches. I enjoyed the day out there,” Moolman-Pasio said. The 29 year old will now turn her attention the road race on Saturday where she is also the defending champion. The road race will take place on a 14 kilometre circuit which will be negotiated 8 times. “It’s going to be a challenge being a solo rider but I think it’s a nice course. I think it will be very spectator friendly and will have some nice punchy sections so I’m looking forward to it and I’m going to give it my best to defend my title and bring the South African jersey to Europe,” she concluded.
  16. Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio powered her way to victory in the South African National Time Trial Championships earlier today. The race was held in Nelspruit at the Mbombela stadium, one of the venues for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Click here to view the article
  17. Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung had Reinardt Janse van Rensburg, Louis Meintjes and Jay Thomson all start in the race against the clock today. All 3 riders put in strong performances to claim the next 3 placing’s on the result sheet. Reinardt secured the silver medal while Louis took home the bronze. The cool early morning conditions made for super-fast times, with Impey able to average 48km/h for the 42.7km course. Our attention now turns to Saturday's road race where we will hope to defend our title over the 180km parcours. "The time trial went alright today. Maybe I started out a little bit too fast because it really started to hurt near the end but I'm satisfied with the result. It was my first time competing in the TT Champs again after winning the title in 2012. Obviously you always want to win but Daryl was just super strong so I can’t complain." Reinardt Janse van Rensburg - Rider
  18. With a bright and early start, the South African time trial championships took place around the Mbombela Stadium streets this morning. Defending champion Daryl Impey (Orica-Greenedge) was successfully able to defend his title from last year, clocking the fastest time of 53'23" on the day. Click here to view the article
  19. The heart of the Lowveld currently plays host to the 2015 Pennypinchers South African Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships and with a top quality field gathered in Mbombela, the racing is expected to be of the highest order from 3 to 8 February as the nation’s best vie for the coveted title of being crowned national Champion.

  20. Following his sound performances at the African Continental Track Championships last month it was a fought opening Time Trial at the 2015 Pennypinchers South African Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships Dane Wilson came in second to Craig Ridgard but was happy with his race on Tuesday. // Photo: craigdutton.com The six day programme started on Tuesday morning with para-cycling as well as the Under-12 Boys’ and Under-14 Girls’ time trials with the cream of the country’s road cycling crop present for this year’s national championships clash. Current SA Time Trial champ Daryl Impey recently returned from international duty with his Australian based Orica-GreenEDGE team and hopes to add a first ever SA Road Championships title to his trophy cabinet by overthrowing current road race title holder Louis Meintjes who pipped him at the post following a broken chain in 2014. The ladies charge will be led by Ashleigh Moolman Pasio who is out to defend both the Road Race and Time Trial titles she won in 2014. The Bigla Pro Cycling Team star will however be pushed hard by a number of others who also have a national title on their mind. A large contingent of para-cyclists is relishing this year’s national contest and with the absence of the most successful para-cyclist in South African history, Ernst van Dyk, a number of riders hope to be the first in line for this year’s title. Andries Scheepers has been known as the one rider with the ability to push Van Dyk in the past and with the absence of the 2008 Paralympic gold medallist, Scheepers may well fancy his chances when the road race takes place on Wednesday. Tuesday’s racing was hard fought with a number of para-cycling time trials being contested. Following his sound performances at the African Continental Track Championships last month it was a fought opening Time Trial at the 2015 Pennypinchers South African Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships Dane Wilson came in second to Craig Ridgard but was happy with his race on Tuesday. // Photo: craigdutton.com Craig Ridgard won the C3-5 Time Trial in a time of 28:57 ahead of Dane Wilson and was impressed with the event’s organisation as well as favourable conditions riders experienced during Tuesday’s time trials. “The course was pretty technical but it was a great course!” he said happily. “I am busy building towards the road race and I think that the result today was a good confidence booster for me heading into that.” “You never quite know what to expect from the weather on the Lowveld but we were blessed today with some good conditions and a great course so I am happy!” Wilson is busy preparing himself for the Para-cycling Track World Championships in the Netherlands in a few months’ time. “There is a lot of crossing over from track to the road and to use a race like this to prepare was great for me as it allowed me to ride for a longer period on an undulating, technical time trial route. “Racing in an individual environment is also great for me to prepare!” Wilson added. One of the country's top hand cyclists Justine Asher produced a great ride on the opening day of the 2015 Pennypinchers South African Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships in Mbombela to claim the national title in the Time Trial with the Road Race looming large on Wednesday. // Photo: craigdutton.com H2 hand cycling ace Justine Asher was also on the top step of the podium on the opening day in Mbombela and she too was complimentary about the conditions and course. “Today went really well for me and the lovely weather and smooth roads helped me get the best out of myself today. “I think I am more geared to Time Trial racing so it was great to get a win today but I will look to do the same on Wednesday at the road race as I build up towards the World Cup events and the World Champs later in the year,” Asher mentioned. Conditions for the week are forecast to be humid as the Lowveld summer causes some discomfort. However, with many of the races scheduled to start early in the morning, the heat should not play too much of a role in proceedings.
