SA Road Championships took place in Westville this weekend and although Toti didn’t get any podium finishes, the experience was well worth it.

Congratulations to the following:

Elite men (170km)

1. Jaco Venter (Dimension Data) 03:58:35
2. Reinardt Janse van Rensburg (Dimension Data) 03:59:02
3. Clint Hendricks (Roadcover) 03:59:02.

Elite women

1. An-Li Kachelhoffer (Lotto-Soudol Ladies) 03:26:50

2. Lise Olivier (Time Freight eTeam) 03:26:57
3. Anriette Schoeman (Africa Silks) 03:27:02

The memorial ride for Richard da Silva and Jared Dwyer was incredible. To see how many cyclists paid tribute to the two of them was hard to believe. We only pray that this kind of senseless loss does not occur again and that the newly formed eThekwini Cycle Safe Forum keeps the momentum going. Their main objective is to create a safer environment for our beloved sport and that the roads can be shared equally and peacefully by cyclists and motorists.

Thank you must go out to all the Toti Cycling Club members who made the effort to ride and support this tribute.

The Mambas were again out and about at different locations – some braved the Wartburg Classic under extreme hot conditions, while others enjoyed a ride around Illovo, and there were others who sneaked off to Drakensberg to enjoy our country’s beauty.
