It was a quiet day for the South African team at the UCI para-cycling Road World Championships in Nottwill, Switzerland on Saturday.
And while no medals came the way of SA there were still some solid performances.
Friday had seen Pieter du Preez, Justine Marais and Ernst van Dyk win two gold and a bronze respectively.
Saturday’s best results was George Rex’s (pictured above) fifth spot in the Men’s T1 road race over 21 kilometres where he was 10min 30sec behind France’s Quintin Aubague.
Also in action was Goldy Fuchs in the men’s T2 race where he ended seventh, 4:29 down on Germany’s Hans-Pieter Durst’s 52:28 over the 28km course.
And then there was Craig Ridgard in the men’s C2 category raced over 56 kilometres. He ended 1:42 off the pace as Peru’s Israel Hilario Rimas won in 1:29:04.
Sunday seems more road race action on the final day of the championships and with the team’s three medallists all in action again the rainbow nation will be hoping for more of Friday’s success.
