The SA team’s luggage after the Continental Track Championships was certainly quite a bit fuller with all the medals won over the four days of competition and the three young riders from KZN certainly played their part in ensuring that it was a case of “mission accomplished” is Cairo. Courtney did extremely well as a first year elite winning four bronze medals and Ainsli came away with two golds, a silver and a bronze in the Junior Women category. James Swart was exceptionally good throughout entering six competitions and walking away with six golds and dominated the Junior Men’s category. He’s certainly going to be looking forward to returning to Cairo in September for the UCI Junior Track Cycling World Championships. Well done to our young riders for keeping the KZN flag flying high.
We have made a strategic call to move KZN Road Champs from its traditional time slot in January prior to SA Champs to a fixed time slot in the first week of July.
