Herman handed call-up

A logistical challenge has seen a change to the Team SA road cycling team to do duty at the African Continental Championships in Asmara, Eritrea from 9-13 November.

The outcome is that Herman Fouche will now replace Nolan Hoffman in the team for Ethiopia. This as Cycling South Africa’s Road Commission were in unison to include Herman Fouche and his sprint capabilities to the team to replace Hoffman.

The challenges was to get 2011 Amashova Classic winner Hoffman to Eritrea directly from the UCI Track Cycling World Cup ÔÇ£ClassicÔÇØ in Kazakhstan, where he was also selected to race. SA sprinting sensation Arran Brown was approached to ride for the team but was unavailable for the event.

The revised team will be as follows:

Jaco Venter
Louis Meintjes
Reinardt Janse van Rensburg
Herman Fouche

Ashleigh Moolman Pasio
Cherise Taylor
Joanna van de Winkel
Robyn de Groot

Team Manager: Barry Austin
Mechanic and Masseur: To be confirmed
