After much hard work and a stellar year thus far, Frances Janse van Rensburg will be embarking on a new exciting challenge from next week when she leaves SA to take up a slot earned at the World Cycling Centre in Switzerland. Apart from receiving top quality training from the UCI coaches throughout the year, she will also be riding for the WCC Continental Women’s Team that competes in all the premier races across Europe. The opportunity is a massive one for Frances and certainly well deserved and testimony to her efforts as well as the guidance given by Johann Wykerd who has been coaching her throughout. The farewell function held saw many of the people that have supported Frances over the years, including KZN Cycling President, Sean Lucien. We all wish her well in her journey ahead.
