I have been fortunate enough to be selected to represent South Africa at the Tour de Taiwan (UCI 2.1) from 11-15 March 2018.
To participate in an event of this ranking, you need to either be part a UCI-registered pro team or have national selection. It is by far the highest and most prestigious race, I have ever had the opportunity to compete in and, I'm thrilled at the opportunity.
By contributing to my campaign, you will not be helping to fund a holiday but, an investment in my cycling career.
This year, I placed 5th overall in the UCI Tour de l'Espoir - Cameroon - as part of the U23 Nations Cup.WHAT'S THE MONEY RAISED FOR?
Since 2018, Cycling SA has advised that it is no longer in a position to cover the costs of athletes and teams invited to international tours. Hence, expenses are for the Athletes accounts (including paying a share of the cost of the team manager and mechanic accompanying the team). The money I am looking to raise will go towards paying for my flight tickets, travel insurance, and my share of staff support cost.
