Does anyone know who is representing SA at this event?

 

I see the Kiwis have named Julian Dean (Garmin Cervelo), Greg Henderson (Team Sky) and Jack Bauer (Endura Racing) for the three-strong men's team. Jesse Sergent (Radioshack) will join Bauer to compete in the TT.

 

...Jack Bauer - shouldn't he be off saving the world or something?

why no Saffa's ?:angry:

 

 

 

edit: I see u23's but the elite's/seniors?

From Flemish Lion's link:

The Elite Men did not qualify in terms of UCI-points for the World Championships according to the UCI selection criteria. The Road Commission has invested in a long-term program whereby the focus is on quality rather than quantity and various plans are being implemented to expose our young talented cyclists to start building this quality. South Africa’s elite riders have participated in an unprecedented amount of UCI road cycling races via various Continental teams, yet were not able to get the UCI-points required for selection.

:thumbup: Australian Luke Durbridge wins the U23 mens ITT.

 

<_< Of the SA entrants, Louis Meintjies fared best with 18th place at +2.34, next was Johan van Zyle in 51st at +4.31 and then Reinhart Janse van Rensburg in 58th place at 5.16.

:clap: Good to see live coverage on SS5 this afternoon.

Great ride by Louis, only 19 years old - especially considering how the other 2 SA TT specialists in the event fared.(Also 2010 Junior TT Champion Lawson Cradock could only manage 50th). This young man has a great future.

Can only presume that the tyre came partially unstuck from the rim and became off centre causing it to make contact with the inside of the fork. Unusual thing to happen and unfortunate as his mechanic probably glued the tubby for him so not totally the riders fault. Comes in same category as pulling a wheel because not tightened properly - doesn't get much official sympathy!!!

 

I personnally felt that the event was very disappointing after all the hype - now 10 years since SA U23 ITT medal at worlds!!

Great racing by the youngsters who do not look like youngsters at all.

 

Saw one South African in the mix!

 

France takes it - Lecuisinier - on a real long steady climb to the finish line built for power sprinters like Hushovd and Gilbert the great.
