I am a 28-year old South African professional cyclist, riding for the UCI registered ProTouch Continental Team.
I am an all-rounder/puncheur type of rider. I am delighted to be part of the number 1 ranked team in Africa – Team ProTouch Continental. I am ranked 28th in South Africa. Our main focus is goal is to remain the number 1 Cycling Nation in Africa for two consecutive years.
HERE IS MY STORY – A very interesting fact : I was the deputy Headboy in High School. Growing up I’ve always wanted to be a rugby player, but that quickly changed when the cycling bug bit me. I soon grew very fond of the sport. One of my goals includes winning a stage in a UCI Tour in the near future. If the opportunity arises for me to step up and take the win I would gladly avail myself! I am a team player and would do anything in my power to keep the ProTouch flag flying high.
I am fortunate to be part of this UCI registered team – we are hopeful that we will eventually take the top step and win a UCI tour overall this year. I would also like to help my team mates as much as possible for them to get the best result they can.
