  1. Hi everyone! If you are in the Cape Town area it would be great if you can help as a participant in this study for Sam's doctorate. She needs quite a few more participants as her current sample size is too small. Give it a go UCT REQUIRES PARTICIPANTS FOR KNEE LAXITY STUDY: Questioning the effect of genetics on knee laxity and risk of ACL rupture What is the study about? Our study aims to determine whether genetics effects knee joint laxity (looseness of the joint) and risk of knee ligament injury. By gaining a better understanding of the role of specific gene variants in knee joint laxity, we improve our understanding of the cause of ACL injuries, this in turn could help us to better prevent them in the future. Who is eligible to participate? We are looking for healthy individuals (with or without previous ACL injury) who: • Have had no lower limb or spinal cord injuries in the past 6 months • Are 18 - 50 years of age • Have a BMI of less than 30 • Are physically active • Have not been diagnosed with connective tissue or skeletal muscle disorders What will be required of you? One visit to the Sports Science Institute of South Africa, Boundary Rd Newlands, for: o Completion of questionnaires (personal particulars, sports participation, etc.) o A small blood sample being drawn blood o Height and weight measurement o Flexibility measurement using a sit and reach test o Four joint laxity tests What are the benefits? • You will receive results of the various joint laxity tests. • On completion of the study, feedback with regards to the overall results of the study. To apply to take part in the study or for more information, please contact Sam on sambeckley@gmail.com or call 082 974 3046. Knee laxity study 22-05-2018.pdf
  2. We are recruiting well-trained cyclists or triathletes who are following a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet for a study at the Sport Science Institute of South Africa, Cape Town. Please consider the attached advert and contact me for more information!
  3. The boys at UCT cycling have found a diamond in the rough, rocky area that is Table Mountain with their short cross-country style mountain bike track on which the weekly “Track Tuesdays powered by Private Client Holdings” is held. Click here to view the article
  4. The UCT Cycling Club has partnered with Private Client Holdings, Trek, Free-wheel Cycology and William Simpson to bring fun short course racing to the schools of Cape Town. The racing consists of 2 categories, ‘A’ and ‘B’ and the schoolboys and girls seed themselves accordingly. The B race is 3 laps or +-15mins of lung busting riding up the steep climbs and tight berms that litter the track. The A race is much the same only this time the racing is more intense and lasts 4 laps or +-20 mins. The goal for UCT is to develop mountain bikers and a love for cycling from a grass roots level and through this participation, mobilize communities through bicycles by supporting the Velokhaya foundation with which UCT Cycling is associated. The track is open to the public with permits being sold at The Gear Change in Mowbray or on Tuesday evenings at the races.

  9. The much-anticipated route announcement took place in Cape Town on Wednesday (October 22) and the Mother City will kick off the 2015 edition on Sunday, March 15. From there the course takes riders to the Elgin Valley, Worcester and Wellington before the new Grand Finale finish venue at Meerendal Wine Estate on March 22. Defending champion Kristian Hynek of the Czech Republic said there appeared to be “a lot of climbing – and some long climbs, which I enjoy”. Hynek will be back to defend the title he won this year with German Robert Mennen. In 2015, however, he will be racing with Austrian Alban Lakata. “There is also more singletrack, which makes it fun,” he added. The Prologue will be staged on Table Mountain for the first time since 2009. It will start and finish at UCT and, although only 20km, it contains some of the toughest climbs on Table Mountain – including one that has been given an unprintable, expletive-laden name by locals and another called Deadman’s Tree. 2014 Women’s category winner Ariane Kleinhans said it was “really cool coming back to Table Mountain”. There will be several other talking points about the route once riders have crossed the finish line at Meerendal after eight days. One of those will be the Paardeberg climb on the Stage 7 – riders will gain an eye-watering 600m of elevation in a six kilometre climb. Stage 1 features one of the Epic’s legendary climbs, Groenlandberg, and – at 113km and with 2 800m of vertical gain – threatens to be one of the toughest days of the event this year. The stage begins and ends at Oak Valley Wine Estate in the Elgin Valley, as does Stage 2, a 92km loop, which will take participants along many kilometres of the area’s excellent trail network. Stage 3 is the longest stage at 128km and takes riders from Oak Valley to their new race village in Worcester. They spend another day in Worcester for the 111km Stage 4, which starts and ends in the town and will pit competitors against some of the toughest terrain in the Western Cape. Stage 5 is a transition stage to the last race village of the 2015 Absa Cape Epic in Wellington. It is 117km long and includes 2 500m of vertical gain, including a climb up the Bain’s Kloof Pass and some fierce ascents in the Welvanpas trail network: it will prove to be another testing stage in the 2015 event. Riders will get a chance to enjoy themselves on Stage 6, a 71km loop through some of the best trails in the local valleys. And then it is the final 87km home to the Grand Finale finish at Meerendal. But before they get there the remaining competitors will have to negotiate a climb that is destined to enter Epic folklore - the Paardeberg, slap bang in the middle of the last stage. Kleinhans said it was “really special to be finishing at Meerendal … that’s very different but a nice difference”. Stage summaries and profiles available here.
  10. The Absa Cape Epic will return to the slopes of Table Mountain in 2015 when the rugged eight-day race’s Prologue is staged from the University of Cape Town. Click here to view the article
  11. For study on the psycho-physiological determinants of pacing during prolonged endurance exercise. The study will investigate the physical and mental factors that determine endurance performance and pacing strategies in a 70km time trial as well as the differences between ‘elite’ and ‘sub-elite’ cyclists, and an individual time trial and a head-on-head competition. Please view the attached PDFs for more details. Elite: Research Poster Psychophysiology Elite.pdf Sub-elite: Research Poster Psychophysiology Sub-Elite.pdf Deadline for applications: 31 October 2014
