Cycling South Africa’s Para-cycling Commission proudly announce‘s the following riders who have been selected to represent South Africa at the 2015 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships taking place in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands, from 26-29 March.
The Championship event will provide an excellent foundation for re-building the international competitiveness of South Africa’s Para-cycling track team in the build-up to Rio 2016. In a situation where the UCI has hosted relatively few international track competitions over the past three years, the 2015 World Championships will serve as a stepping-stone into the 2016 grand season, when it is expected that the country’s top riders will reach their peak competitive condition.
The current projection, based on 2014 international racing achievements, is that South African Para-cycling is likely to secure four men and two women slots for Rio 2016. These statistics provide a massive incentive for the four riders, competing in the Netherlands, to stake a claim to the slots that will be on offer.
South African Team:
