Life on Two Wheels

About the Author

I’m a determined bastard trying to make it big in the Cape Town Cycling Scene, starting at the bottom and clawing my way up one wheel at a time.

To crack my first big race win. It took me 950h of racing and training, 22110km and 650 exercises to get there in just over two years.

Below is my bio since then:

I currently race as Captain in Team Aurecon Sub-Vet Race team and compete in the 30-34 age group in South African road races and in MTB events.

I have completed numerous tours and stage races at elite level, including the Giro Del Capo, three ABSA Cape Epics, two Sani2C’s and the Tour de Boland. I have raced countless one day events including annual road leagues, Criteriums WP and SA Championships in Road, MTB, Time Trial and Track.

Below is a summary of my results:

      1. That’s insane. Haven’t used Strava before (will do now, it looks awesome). You should come round on Thursdays when UCT holds the weekly time trial, show us all how its done. 😀

  1. Neville i’m so impressed with your article on the Methanol FS. Do you mind letting me know what that cost you to setup? I’m looking into a new bike and have only heard great things about Bianchi. My roadie is a Bianchi, but have a HT & FS Scott. Been looking at other combinations as well. Thanks so much.
