With the COVID-19 pandemic bringing the sports industry to a halt, Road Cyclists – locally and internationally – have been maintaining their fitness on smart trainers and participating in virtual races on a variety of online platforms. Support SA Talent launched a 10-week Virtual Road Cycling Series, which started on Wednesday 13 May 2020 at 18h00 CET. The Series, also provided a platform to fundraise for the recently launched Phil Liggett Foundation to Support SA Talent.

The events are live streamed by Beyond Sound and MVM Media and commentary is provided by Support SA Talent Brand Ambassador, Myles Van Musschenbroek together with Jamie Taylor from Office Guru U23 Racing and Tony Harding, from the ProTouch Continental Team. South African road cyclists were invited to enter as a Team or as an Individual on Zwift, with two separate racing categories and Points were awarded for the Top 10 positions in both the Men and Women’s Categories as well as Men’s Team and Women’s Team categories.

“We had over 200 South African riders registered into Series 1, while under lockdown. We are inviting you to come 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 Continental Rider responsible for driving the development of the Series with Support SA Talent.
