I can’t remember when I started cycling, if I had to guess it would be since birth. My dad had a big influence on me riding bicycles as he was a very keen cyclist and still is. It started with my dad and me just riding for fun and he would take me to all the trails around the Grabouw and Stellenbosch area.
Since racing at a provincial, national, and international level from the age of 14 achieved good results; I thought that I could really make a career out of the sport. Since then It was my dream to ride for a professional team.
“My personal goal for my career is to be a South African champion and to represent South Africa at a world championship. Winning a stage in the ABSA Cape Epic and the African jersey are also big goals for me as it is a home race and one of the biggest in the world.
“My opportunity to be a professional rider has finally arrived at the end of the 2021 season. I was given the opportunity to be a part of the Valley Electrical Titan Racing Team. This great environment will help me bring the best out of myself and my cycling career. Together with HB Kruger, we will have the opportunity to compete for the win in the biggest races across South Africa and maybe Internationally. I will also be able to chase my own personal goals with the support of the team and become the best rider I can be.”
