SASCOC today named an 18-member cycling team to represent South Africa at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia from April 4 to 15.
Cycling is one of 16 sporting disciplines in which South Africa will be represented at the Games.
Brendon Davids, who “struck twice” in November last year to secure a top Aussie contract, also made the cut for the tarmac.
Seven-time Paarl Boxing Day 25-mile winner Nolan Hoffman received the call-up to represent his country on the track, while David Maree, who won the “Devil” at the Paarl event last month, was also included.
Charlene du Preez, who lined up for her first two UCI Track Cycling World Cup events last year, will also be among the women competing.
Mariske Strauss, who won the elite race at the National MTB Cup Series last year, was selected for the mountain-bike discipline.
Alan Hatherly, who won silver at the U23 UCI Mountain Bike World Champs last year, was the only man picked to race in the dirt.
