Yes, its very good and (I think I saw him mentioned in the tour of Romandy) as well.

 

Obviously showing some good form right now and with his contract coming up for renewal within the year he is getting good coverage.

But alas, due to sanctions and South Africa's policy of Apartheid, it wasn't

to be. Ertjies, along with Robbie McIntosh and Alan van Heerden, were left

to their own devices in Europe, racing under alias names for fear of being

thrown out of Europe.

 

 

When they did race under their own names, they couldn't afford to get

results, because of fear of their identity becoming public. That's the main

reason why Van Heerden, who won a stage in the Giro d'Italia, never lined up

for Peugeot in the Tour de France.
