Cycling South Africa announces the road cycling team that will be participating in the 2013 African Continental Championships, which takes place in Sharm Al Sheikh, Egypt, from 29 November to 5 December 2013.
The riders will compete in all the road cycling disciplines during the prestigious Championship event, these being the Team Time Trial, Individual Time Trial and the road races.
Team members from South Africa’s first Pro-Continental team, Team MTN-Qhubeka, will not be able to participate in the African Continental Championships due to off-season training commitments. South African cycling stars Daryl Impey, who races for the Pro Team Orica GreenEDGE, and Reinardt Janse van Rensburg, who races for the Pro Team Argos Shimano, will also not be able to represent their country due to prior commitments. The team thus has a strong focus on nurturing the under-23 and junior categories.
Cycling SA’s Road Commission approached Robert Hunter to occupy the Management position, but he too has prior commitments and is unable to attend.
