Cape Town riders to compete in the LONDON-PARIS 2019

Leading events company Hotchillee today named three young South African riders invited to fly to the UK to race in the LONDON-PARIS 2019 as part of the Hotchillee Academies Programme.

Hotchillee launched their Academies Programme in 2012 with the aim of fostering young cycling talent from South Africa and creating a pathway into the pro peloton.Programme success stories include Dimension Data World Tour rider, Nicholas Dlamini who won the Hotchillee LONDON-PARIS 2013.

Siphe Ncapayi, Kayla Lubbe and Jamie Penfold will compete for the Rainmaker U23 GC, Sprinters, and Climber’s jersey at the 16th edition of the race which starts on Wednesday this week. The riders will stay in Paris the following day and watch the Tour de France pros arrive and race the iconic laps of the ChampsÉlysées Stage. Entry to the event has been sponsored by HotChillee, with the international flights provided by the Department for Cultural Affairs and Sport from the Western Cape Government.

Siphe Ncapayi

“I’m so excited to selected to ride in overseas because that will be my first time for me to leave South Africa. It’s a wonderful journey to show other youngsters how it is important to be consistent in something. So it means a lot to me and also to my parents who are very proud of me.”
Siphe Ncapayi

Kayla Lubbe

“All my life I've dreamt of travelling to Europe and finally my dream has become a reality and bonus I get to take my bike with me. This is just the beginning."
Kayla Lubbe

Jamie Penfold

“So stoked to be travelling to London to take part in the London-Paris and then watching the Tour de France come to a finish in Paris.”
Jamie Penfold
“The Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport commends Hotchillee on using cycling and education as tools to improve the lives of youth living in vulnerable communities. Their commitment to the holistic approach adopted to significantly contribute to the personal development of youth in these vulnerable areas is applauded and held in high-esteem. Through our established partnership with Hotchillee and the Buffalo Foundation, we look forward to further increasing support for the development of cycling in creating an enabling environment to increase mass participation, talent identification and skills development in the province. We are exceptionally proud of our local riders participating on the international stage and hope that on their return, they will bring about real sustainable change to their hometowns through cycling”.
