On Friday afternoon 8 September 2018 in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, Team Spur’s Alan Hatherly executed a tactical masterclass to wrestle the U23 UCI XCO World Championship jersey onto his shoulders.
The result in Canada, on “one of the hardest tracks on the [World Cup] circuit”, according to Hatherly, is the South African’s most memorable result in a roller coaster season of racing. The 22-year-old broke both his wrists in February in a mountain bike stage but bounced back in April to claim a bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games in Australia.
Get ready to saddle-up young mountain bikers for the 2018 season of the Spur Schools MTB League – it’s set to be better than ever. The Southern Cape will kick off the series at Klipheuwel Trail Park on 19 May, while the Western Cape date is set for 9 June at Southey Vines Cycle Park in Somerset West.
