Team announcement for MTB Marathon World Champs – Singen (GER)

Cycling South Africa’s Mountain Bike Commission has great pleasure in announcing that the following riders have been selected to represent South Africa at the 2017 UCI Mountain Bike Marathon World Championships in Singen, Germany, from 24-25 June.

The riders have been selected in line with the 2017 CSA-MTB Selection Criteria.

Elite Men:

Nico Bell
Max Knox
Philip Buys
Sithembiso Masanga

Women:

Robyn de Groot
Amy McDougall

Those riders who qualified through the UCI World Marathon Series that intend to participate in the Marathon World Champs are required to send their information to Dellah Paul dellah@cyclingsa.com so that the entry can be processed.

The 2017 edition of the UCI Mountain Bike Marathon World Championships will take the Elite Men along a 98-kilometre route and the Elite Women along an 80-kilometre route in the Hegau area of Germany, just north of the German/Swiss border.

Climbs will be short but characteristically steep as the riders traverse the German countryside in pursuit of the rainbow jersey and the accolade of being dubbed the World Champion.

Congratulations on your selection and we wish you every success.
