Hi All

Last weekend was the Gauteng xco champs which was held at Thaba Trails south of JHB.

This bumpy, technical course scattered with numerous obstacles, power climbs and rock gardens is the location for next weekends SA XCO champs. This made it a great opportunity for riders to get some practice in prior to the big event and even fine tune equipment and strategies.

The weather was cool and windy as expected and the turn out was perhaps a little disappointing but the racing was hot on the very spectator friendly course and the fluo gang didn't disappoint.

Our team took away no less than 6 wins on the day from Azulda in sub junior women through to Alan in Vets! Arno and Yolande won the elites, Paul the sub vet B and Genevieve the overall and junior women.

Adding to this Alan Hatherly won the junior cat and 6th overall at the Toti 94km road race for his final preparation leading up to the National champs this weekend.

Gert Heyns has also been in the highveld preparing for this weekend so our team will almost be at full strength which is going to be very exciting.

Then on an international level Alan has qualified for the SA World Champs team in Norway later this year. We will be holding thumbs that all of his preparations go to plan leading up to that event.

Be sure follow our twitter feed next weekend and we will keep you updated on all the happenings and results from the National Champs.

Until then,

Happy cycling
