Change to Under 23 team for Road World Champs (ITA)

After an appeal received from Christopher Jennings following his non-selection to the under 23 team for the Road World Championships, the matter was referred to the Selection Review Panel (SRP) as per the documented appeal process.

The SRP met and confirmed valid grounds for the appeal and referred the team back to the selectors. The selectors reconvened and have selected the following under 23 team to represent South Africa at the Road World Championships.
