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 Champs–Élysées 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.
Glen is usually behind the scenes making sure that the Hotchillee Ride Captains and event participants have fully functioning bicycles to ride but he occasionally makes an appearance in front of the camera to share his wisdom. If he’s not fixing or building bikes he’ll be out riding in #SweetSussex. If you want to know anything about Cyclocross, Glen is the man to ask.
