But Stefan de Bod – seen as the future of SA cycling in some circles – also had a breakthrough year, which culminated in him being bumped up to the DiData WorldTour outfit.
And how heavy will Clint Hendricks‘ bronze medal in the Commonwealth Games weigh?
And let us not forget the nominees from elsewhere in Africa.

Famous last words! As I said, let’s not forget the nominees from elsewhere in Africa.
The judging panel – chaired by Bernard Hinault – felt Rwanda’s Joseph Areruya did enough to receive the African Cyclist of the Year reward. Fitting as well after finishing second to Louis Meintjes at the polls last year.
They pointed out that it was not just about doing well in Word Tour events, but in African races as well.
Here are the final standings:
1. Joseph Areruya (Rwanda)
2. Daryl Impey (South Africa)
3. Amanuel Ghebreigzabhier (Eritrea)
4. Merhawi Kudus (Eritrea)
5. Youcef Reguigui (Algeria)
6. Samuel Mugisha (Rwanda)
7. Azzedine Lagab (Algeria)
8. Salim Kipkemboi (Kenya)
9. Clint Hendricks (South Africa)
10. Isiaka Cisse (Ivory Coast)
11. Henok Mulubrhan (Eritrea)
12. Stefan De Bod (South Africa)
13. Mathias Sorgho (Burkina Faso)
14. Bonaventure Uwizeyimana (Rwanda)
15. Clovis Kamzong (Cameroon)
2012 – Natnael Berhane (Eritrea)
2013 – Louis Meintjes (South Africa)
2014 – Mekseb Debesay (Eritrea)
2015 – Daniel Teklehaimanot (Eritrea)
2016 – Tesfom Okubamariam (Eritrea)
2017 – Louis Meintjes (South Africa)
2018 – Joseph Areruya (Rwanda)
