  1. Hi Guys The NSPCA has formed a new (non-pro) National Cycling Team... They are looking for dedicated cyclists, sponsors, endorsees, donors and any other person/company who would like to get involved with #teamNSPCA. Cyclists riding for the National SPCA Cycling Team would ride in aid of the NSPCA in any cycling events they take part in throughout the year, and do so in an attempt to raise funds for this great charity. This National Team will consist of more permanent and committed riders than the (equally awesome) 'NSPCA Charity Team' taking part in events like the 947... ALL funds raised, sponsorship received, donations donated, endorsements given and other support offered (being financial support, goods, services or other) will go directly to the NSPCA, as cyclists will ride for the team on a volunteer basis. Should you be interested in joining the team, or if you are a company looking at sponsoring the NSPCA, please contact the NSPCA directly on comms3@nspca.co.za - they will be able to give you more info. They do have some rules and criteria for members of the National Team, all available from the NSPCA... . You are also welcome to leave a comment here, or *DM me, and I will put you in contact with the right people (I joined the team recently and help them out with the admin etc...) So, if you have a love for animals and enjoy cycling, please consider joining this team dedicated in supporting the NSPCA. ALL funds raised, sponsorship, donations, endorsements and other support (being financial support, goods or services offered) will go directly to the NSPCA, and cyclists ride for the team on a volunteer basis.
  2. Cycling South Africa announces the road cycling squad that will be participating in the 2015 Confederation of African Cycling Road Cycling Championships, taking place in Wartburg, KwaZulu-Natal, from 9 to 14 February. Click here to view the article
  3. The final team will be announced from the listed squad at the SA National Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships from 3-8 February. Only eight of the ten selected Elite and U23 squad members will be selected to compete; four of the six Junior Men will be selected to compete; and four of the selected six Elite Women and Junior Women will be selected to compete. It will be the first time that South Africa will be hosting the prestigious African Continental Championships, which has predominantly been hosted by the Northern African countries in the past. Interest in the event has been strong, with 26 African nations entered for the event. The three days of time trial and three days of road racing will follow immediately after the South African Road Championships in Mbombela, providing a key fortnight opportunity for elite road cyclists to test themselves and earn crucial Olympic qualifying points for their federation in the process. Louis Meintjes will lead the strong national team with the Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung riders set to put in a strong performance in the Team Time Trial. Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung’s recent wildcard entry into this year’s Tour de France has highlighted South Africa’s talent on the global cycling stage. Strong focus will be placed on Jayde Julius as one of South Africa’s UCI Africa Tour contenders for the season with the National Federation wanting to garner as many UCI points as possible. Cycling South Africa’s goal is to qualify as the number one team on the continent and to have enough UCI points to send a strong team to the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Only a handful of riders elected to compete in the Time Trial discipline, whilst the remainder of the cyclists have focused on the upcoming road cycling races, which begin on Friday 26 September. Weather conditions were not favourable for the junior women, who were first to tackle their 13.9km TT course on Monday, 22 September. Monique Gerber and Michelle Benson had the support of the nation behind them as they braved the wet and slippery conditions. Gerber finished in 44th place, and Benson in 48th place. The Aussies scored a gold and bronze medal, with Macey Stewart taking the victory in 20 minutes 08.39 seconds. Danish rider Pernille Mathiesen claimed silver, 10.79 seconds off the pace, while Anna-Leeza Hull secured the bronze medal, 13.31 off the winning time. Benson was affected by the weather as she took a tumble on the slippery surface in a steep downhill section of the race. She was just 3km from the finish when she crashed, but soldiered on to settle for 48th place. Later in the day, Louis Meintjes and Willem Smit competed in the under-23 category. Meintjes’ performance along the 36.15km circuit saw him sitting in the hot seat with the quickest time for a little while, until he was dislodged by Rafael Reis (POR). Eventual winner Campbell Flakemore (AUS) clocked the quickest time in 43:49.94, with Ryan Mullen (IRL) second, 0.48 seconds adrift, and Stefan Kueng (SUI) third, 9.22 seconds adrift. Meintjes finished eighth, 48.36 seconds off the winning time, with Willem Smit (RSA) 28th, +2:09.83. Meintjes told Road to Rio 2016 on Tuesday: “Ja, I’m happy with eighth spot but also really happy with how my legs are feeling before the road race on Friday. The course was flat and not really suited to me but I was lucky to ride the first half without rain.” The 2013 U23 World Championship silver medallist is confident ahead of the road race this Friday, and he feels the course is more suited to his climbing abilities. The junior men and elite women competed in their TTs yesterday. Both categories competed on a 29.5km course. Gustav Basson and Ivan Venter finished in 28th and 44th places respectively, 2:56.35 and 3:36.84 off the winning time. German Lennard Kamna claimed gold in 36:13.49, with Adrien Costa (USA) claiming silver (+44.66) and Michael Storer (AUS), bronze (+58.11). Heidi Dalton was the sole representative in the Elite women’s TT, finishing in 43rd place and 5:43.86 behind the winning time, which was clocked by German Lisa Brennauer. Anna Solovey (UKR) claimed a silver medal (+18.68), while American Evelyn Stevens (USA) claimed a bronze medal (+21.25). The remaining elite women, and all the elite men have placed their focus on the road race. Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio and An-Li Kachelhoffer were not scheduled to race in the TT, however the UCI did not remove Kachelhoffer’s name from the start list. Daryl Impey, Reinhardt Janse van Rensburg and Jacques Janse van Rensburg will also not be competing in the Elite Men’s TT today.
