As proud sponsors of Team Spur, RSAWEB would like to congratulate Olympian mountain biker Alan Hatherly for attaining a bronze medal for South Africa in this year’s Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.
After a wrist injury at the Tankwa Trek in February that forced Alan to pull out of the UCI mountain-bike World Cup in Stellenbosch shortly thereafter, the young Olympian has been back on the saddle and blazed through and nabbed the top spot at the SA MTB XCO Cup Series in Johannesburg.
This young mountain biking prodigy has definitely bounced back from the injury and is going from strength to strength and has made South Africa proud once again at the Commonwealth games earlier today. With a time of 1:17:56, he had a podium finish, narrowly beaten by New Zealanders, Sam Gaze and Anton Cooper, placing third.
Results were as follows:
- Sam Gaze (New Zealand) 1:17:36
- Anton Cooper (New Zealand) 1:17:36
- Alan Hatherly (South Africa) 1:17:56
- Ben Oliver (New Zealand) 1:18:41
- Frazer Clacherty (England) 1:19:14
- Leandre Bouchard (Canada) 1:19:15
- Daniel McConnell (Australia) 1:19:59
- Cameron Orr (Northern Ireland) 1:20:06
- Grant Ferguson (Scotland) 1:22:29
- Nicholas Corlett (Isle of Man) 1:26:20
Alan is a member of Team Spur, along with Ariane Lüthi. RSAWEB is a proud sponsor of these athletes who are flying the South African flag high on a global scale with their achievements and inspiring future cyclists through the work they do.
