• ONE DAY COUNTDOWN TO VIRTUAL ROAD CYCLING SERIES

    In collaboration with ACE Cycles, Support SA Talent announced this week, the launch of its Virtual Road Cycling Series. The Series starts TOMORROW – 13 May 2020 at 18h00 CET. The Series, also provides a platform to fundraise for the recently launched Phil Liggett Foundation to Support SA Talent. Presented by Doolhof Wines and Karan Beef, the Series is planned to run for 10 weeks and is a new category in the Support SA Talent Road Cycling Series (on hold due to Covid-19 event cancellations and postponements). The events will be live streamed and commentary will be provided by Support SA Talent Brand Ambassador, Myles Van Musschenbroek. This week Jamie Taylor from @OfficeGuruRacingU23 will also join Myles in the commentary box.South African road cyclists can enter as an Individual or a Team on Zwift, with two separate racing categories: “A” Category (4w/Kg or more); and, “B” Category (3,2w/Kg – 3,9w/Kg). Points will be awarded for the Top 10 positions in both the Men (All Men – any age) and Women’s (All Women – any age), Mixed Teams (3 Men/ 3 Women), Men’s Team and Women’s Team categories and, points will also be awarded for the Most Aggressive Rider, which will be decided on by the commentary Team and cannot be a rider in a Top 3 position. Participants need an indoor trainer (smart or power meter), Zwift Membership and a Zwift Power Registration, in order to qualify for official results, which will be published once the Zwift Power results are released. No “weight doping” or Tron Bikes allowed, but banter is welcomed.Entry is free to participate but, we encourage riders to make a donation of R200 or more to the Phil Liggett Foundation, and help to South Africa’s talented athletes. The Foundation will provide R100 of each donation into a prize purse for the Series, as well as provide an entry to win a VIP Invitation to a special Doolhof Wines Tasting experience, that Phil will be hosting later in the year. Only winners that have made the donation prior to their first event, will be eligible for their share of the pool and feature on the leader boards.Over 80 riders have already registered to take part in the first event tomorrow and over R 13 550 has been donated into the Foundations' crowdfunding site. A Special Thank you voice note from Phil Liggett was sent out today, to the Founding Donors, who will be featured on the Hall of Fame. “We are inviting South African riders to get involved and help to build their fan base, while under lockdown and experience a new format of racing that can be fun as well as provide a new opportunity for sponsors and brands to invest back into our sport”, Kent Main, @ProTouch Sports Continental Rider responsible for driving the development of the Series with #SupportSATalent.Each week a link will be sent out promoting the race for that week.
