Tyrone Johns elected to represent BMX on Athlete’s Commission

BMX racer Tyrone Johns has been elected by his peers to serve on Cycling South Africa’s Athletes’ Commission as the National Rider Representative.

Johns is no stranger to cycling, having raced BMX bicycles since the young age of four. The 33-year-old first raced as an Elite in 1997, when he was 17-years-old, and has been crowned National Champion on “numerous occasions”.

Johns represented South Africa at the BMX World Championships eight times, and has earned 5 World Numbers.

While he still races in the 30-and-over category, Johns is also a dedicated coach at Giba Gorge.
