With University Sports SA Cycling
Champs starting the day after SA
Marathon Champs, I knew that I was
in for a tough week on sore legs.
The first 3 days during the road tour I
suffered quite a bit and being the defending champ
meant that everyone marked my every move. I did
manage to help the Maties team secure the team
classification and also won the Hill Climb and the
Criterium stages.
The USSA MTB Champs took place on Wednesday in
Coetzenburg. I was eager to win this one after 3
years of not being able to win it due to illness and
I had a good race with the Namibian Tristan de Lange
matching my every move throughout the race. On
the last lap I managed to get a small gap up a short
steep climb and managed to hold him off until we
crossed the line.
I was very happy to add the MTB title to my name
at my last USSA event. – Gert Heyns
