Lemmer appointed COO for 4 month trial period - Wilhelm de Swardt (Beeld)
Friday, February 09, 2007

In what will be seen as a surpise for many, Cycling South Africa (CSA) has appointed Carinus Lemmer as its new Chief Oprating Officer (COO) for a trial period of four months.


According to Lemmer, who is closely involved with Maties Cycling Club and Harmony-Schwinn, it does not bother him that his appointment is not permanent. Lemmer is also the Tour Director for the Cape Argus Pick ?n Pay Giro del Capo.


"Actually it suits me. It gives me time to see whether I can do the job and also whether I want to do it on a permanent basis. It also makes it easier for Cycling South Africa if they are not satisfied with the way I do things."


Lemmer makes it very clear that at the moment he has no real big vision for South African cycling apart from promoting cycling as mass participation sport.


"CSA wants me to start an awareness campaign for the misuse of performance enhancement products. I want everybody involved in cycling to participate in one way or the other. It would be great if we can get to a situation where cyclists have got enough confidence in CSA to come to us when they know about drug abuse cases.


"Lawrence Whittaker, chairman of Cycling South Africa, already proposed last year that we should implement a system where cyclists could on a voluntary basis go for lie-detector tests to prove that they are clean.


"Riders passing the test will then be able to wear special armbands during races to prove their status as clean riders.


"I have been asked to see if we cannot try and do this in the week building up to the Argus."


Lemmer who rode for Bic during 1989-1991 also wants to talk to some of he ex-professionals to see whether they would consider giving talks on how they managed to win races without using any illegal substances.


One of the other things Lemmer has got to work on is apparently to improve the seeding-system for all cyclists. He will be making contact with the cycling bodies of some other countries to find out how they are doing their seeding.


The third thing Lemmer will be working on in his first four months as COO is to better the communication between CSA and all the role players involved in the sport.


Asked why he accepted the job as COO, Lemmer said that it meant he could live out his passion as cyclist himself.


Lemmer makes it clear that he is still a very active cyclist. At the moment he is training to compete in an Audax-event in France where
riders have to complete 1 200km in three days.


?I have already done the first qualifying ride of 400km in one day but I still have to do a ride of 600km in a day.? Lemmer will also be doing the Cape Epic.


As pro-rider in the late eighties and early nineties he competed in all of South Africa?s major tours. He proudly tells that he has competed and finished the Rapport Tour twice.


The last time was in 1991. He then rode as a ?privateer?.


According to Lemmer he has won a ?moerse? lot of medals (silver and bronze) in track events and also managed a few podium placings in some of South Africa?s one day Classics.


His best result was finishing 2nd in the Argus.
