    Cheers dude.

    In 2013, he will be working with the expanded men’s team. “We will be running two racing squads, racing a dual programme,” Campbell explains, “So our riders will be split across two different continents at any given time. It’s going to be a busy racing year for us.”

    Stating the obvious, but at least it's explicit. Campbell will work with the squad in Africa.

    MILAN (VN) — MTN-Qhubeka is moving towards becoming the first African team to race in a grand tour. If all goes well, the South African team will debut in a three-week race in 2014 — and perhaps sooner, as the Vuelta a España is showing interest for next season.

    Don't see them doing too much. They'll send Pardilla, as leader most probably, Jay Thompson, Jacques and maybe Ciolek as the token sprinter, Konovalovas and maybe Russom, but not too much apart from that at all. Certainly don't want to be seeing them risk Meintjes for a 3 week race so early. Much rather it's taken step by step now.

    Also posted this under Small Races 2012 - not sure where it belongs TBH..

    and not sure if this has been posted already, didn't see it, but the app's a bit restrictive re overall view - but quite eezypeezy to use, though :-)

    It states "Central South Africa's biggest cycling race" on their site :-)

    http://www.ofm.co.za/event/4/The-MTN-OFM-Classic

    (PS The MTB leg of the event was held on the Saturday, and "@GrootLem: Cherise Stander @taylorchick1 winning women mtb race here in Bloem @MTNofmclassic")

    I know @GrootLem personally, he's involved with these sort of events MC-ing etc - I will ask him if he gets time for some pics or perhaps a live tweet or two during the event, if anyone is interested, I could pass them on :-) I'm not aware of any streams??

    Looks like tweets could be on @mtnofmclassic - although am deffo not sure if actual live tweets, or rather just general event tweets - here is some more detail via Cycle Lab (former professional cyclist Andrew McLean's site - he commentates for Supersport)

    http://www.cyclelab.com/OnLine%20Entries.aspx?type=Road%20Events

    Can't believe Supersport's not airing it :-( Schande! Ok, peace out.

    No telecast. no streams. It is a proper tiny race tbh. May get a splutter of a few photographs here and there.

    Yeah, I gave a good laugh when I read "Central South Africa's biggest cycling race" on their site.

    Haven't heard back from Hendrik either, left it a bit late to contact him, I randomly checked his tweets last night & saw he was there.

    Much ado about nothing, really, but it's kinda fun - was a time years back when I attended most of the SA road races - I can imagine the vibe in Bloem - nice.
