Meintjes and SA cycle aces race in Italy

Some of South Africa’s top young riders will be part of Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung that will be in action in Italy this weekend taking part in two one-day races.

The GP Industria & Artigianato will be raced on Saturday while Giro Della Toscana will take place on Sunday. Most of the team who recently completed the Giro del Trentino will form the core of the line up with Sergio Pardilla as captain.

The Spaniard said this week he had not been in his best form at Trentino due to illness but feels refreshed and is looking forward to racing this weekend. He will be joined by South African Under-23 national road and time trial champion Louis Meintjes who finished seventh in the young rider competition at Trentino.

Jacques Janse van Rensburg who was seventh on the opening stage of the Italian race last week could again play a part in finding the right breakaway for the team.

Also, Jani Tewelde makes a return to racing after a lengthy knee injury. The Eritrean will be joined by compatriot Meron Russom while Songezo Jim, Tsgabu Grmay & Johann van Zyl make up the rest of the team.
