UPDATE: 2021 AFRICAN ROAD AND TRACK CHAMPIONSHIPS – CAIRO, EGYPT

Following our announcement of Team South Africa selected to compete at the 2021 African Road and Track Championships, there have been a number of revisions to the squad.


AFRICAN ROAD CYCLING AND TIME TRIAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
2 – 6 MARCH 2021

Elite and U23 Women
An appeal was lodged by Hayley Preen on 10 February following her non-inclusion as part of the starting team for the African Road and Time Trial Championships in Egypt as announced on 9 February.

Following the appeal, an appeal panel of five members was appointed, consisting of a representative from the Independent Compliance and Advisory Board (CAB), one selection convenor each from Track and MTB, as well as two additional independent representatives. 

The appeal panel recommended that the Road Commission appoint two additional selectors to review the selection of all riders for the women’s team.

Following the re-selection, the selector’s panel decided that the only change should be for Hayley Preen to be included as a starting team member, with Courteney Webb as the reserve rider.

Selected riders:
Maroesjka Matthee (Road / TTT)
Carla Oberholzer (Road / TTT / ITT)
Frances Janse van Rensburg (Road / TTT / ITT)
Hayley Preen (Road / TTT)
Reserve: Courteney Webb
