Stand out performances from National Track Champs

The 2014 SA Track and Para-cycling Championships came to a close at the Cyril Geoghegan Cycle Stadium in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal late on Saturday evening, 3 May. The event was earmarked by rain (day 2) and strong winds (day 3-4), but this did not prevent riders performing at their best and delivering strong results.

On Thursday and Friday, the Para-cyclists competed in the Individual Pursuit and Time Trial events respectively. Despite only three athletes competing, Roxy Burns (C4), Juan Odendaal (C3) and Dane Wilson (C5) gave it their all for the prestigious championship titles.

Burns completed the 3km Pursuit in 5:10.97, while Odendaal rode a time of 5:03.61 in the 4000m Pursuit with Wilson recording 5:36.81. In the TT event Burns crossed the line in 47.38 seconds in the 500m TT, while Odendaal recorded 1:32.34 and Wilson, 1:14.52 in the 1000m TT.
