The victory continued a successful 12 months for the Clarens-based cyclist, who added the Ride for Sight title this year to the four wins she had in SA road races last year.
She knows, however, that there is no time to rest on her laurels.
“I think it’s very difficult to say you are riding at the peak of your ability,” she said.
“I am happy with my form, but there is always something to work on and one of the things I will be looking to improve is my power and strength.”
But she was delighted to win a title which eluded her last year.
“Winning the SA road title was my first big goal of the year, especially after last year’s race when I thought I had a chance but just didn’t make it.
“I am very happy to keep the jersey in the team for another year after Heidi Dalton won last year.”
The SA road champ said the equipment sponsorship was a massive boost for them.
“Having an equipment sponsor for ladies’ cycling in South Africa is huge and for us it is a big thing.
“I am totally satisfied with the bike I have, which is slightly heavier – about 100g – than the bike I rode previously, but it’s much more responsive.
“In terms of sprinting and downhill it definitely gives you an advantage, while not having a drawback on the climbs – it still climbs beautifully.”
South Africa’s premier stage road race, the Tour of Good Hope takes place in and around Paarl from March 5 to 9, followed by the Cape Town race on March 11.
HEAD Bikes SA offer a limited range of road and mountain bikes to South African cycling enthusiasts, retailing their products online only.
