Olympic Class

BURRY Stander and Yolande Speedy showed why they’re the two mountain bikers chosen to represent SA at the Beijing Olympic Games when they recorded dominant victories at the final round of the Mazda MTN National Cross-Country Series at Mankele, Nelspruit last weekend.

“I took the lead from about halfway through the first lap and managed to pull away from the others at the start of the second lap. I rode pretty hard and the tough course really suited me,” said Stander, adding with relief that he appeared to be over the injury that forced him to quit the Absa Cape Epic in March.
