Riders compete in the SA Individual Time Trial Championships near Swellendam in the Western Cape of South Africa on 19 March 2021.
As the first quarterly report that CyclingSA has made available to our affiliate members and the broader community, I hope it provides insight into the current status and plans for CyclingSA. The report details our progression in delivering against our strategic business model and achieving our national development plans to grow cycling in South Africa.
While the immediate future is uncertain due to the pandemic, there is light at the end of the tunnel. We continue planning for all annual National Championships, our national teams’ participation at World Championships, and the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games preparations.
In terms of local, specifically mass participation events, I have formed part of several working groups and provided input and made recommendations for our mass participation road and mountain bike events to commence on a bigger scale. The submission has been made to government, but has not yet been approved.
Our congratulations to both Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio and Greg Minnaar, whose impressive performances during 2020, under challenging circumstances, were recognised by the Department of Sport, Art and Culture Minister Nathi Mthwetha. You continue to make us proud!
As always, I would like to thank my team, the executive board, staff, commissions, volunteers and cyclists for their passion and dedication to the sport of cycling. I believe that together, we can and will achieve great things this coming year.
