It’s never been this good!

After a second action-packed weekend of World Cup racing in Brazil, South Africa now has four riders ranked inside the top 20, of their respective categories. Record keeping on this is fuzzy at best, however according to *my recollection of the full history of the sport, this is the strongest showing by SA in all the categories, ever. It is a monumental achievement worthy of celebration. Here’s an overview of the riders flying our flag abroad, with their latest results.
