This weekend saw the inaugural Msunduzi Road Challenge – part of the UCI World Cycling Tour (UWCT) – held in Pietermaritzburg. This mass-participation road event serves a dual purpose by offering enthusiasts an all-new road cycling challenge, and offers seasoned cyclists the opportunity to qualify for the once-off UWCT Final in 2012 (previously known as the UCI Masters Road World Championship).

The weekend’s races started off with great success as Team RSAWEB took gold (Neville Cragg) and silver (Rob Quinn) in the Individual Time Trail, which took place on Saturday. The celebrations continued when Edward Greene made a crucial break in the closing stages of the 126km Msunduzi Road Challenge, and secured the victory.

Greene was part of an eleven rider breakaway that split the front peleton shortly after the halfway point at Dalton, and made his move as the contenders reached the outer city limits and reached the finish at Alexandra Park alone after a gutsy solo break. His break splintered the front bunch as individual riders tried to catch him, but to no avail.

The team almost secured a second podium spot, but missed it by a mere 6 second resulting in Jos Le Roux in 4th position – not a bad result considering Le Roux raced in the Durbanville High School PCS the day before!

Team RSAWEB continued their Pro Classic Series campaign by representing at the Durbanville High School Race, which took place this past Saturday. Carl Pasio secured yet another podium position for Team RSAWEB in second place, behind Theuns van der Bank.

We’re at it again… first, we introduced SA’s lowest ADSL line rental prices; then we slashed the prices of our 30GB and 50GB Super DSL, and now we’ve lowered the prices of ADSL lines on our business-grade ADSL packages – comfortably making the ADSL line rental prices on both our consumer and business ADSL products the cheapest in South Africa.

We received an overwhelmingly positive response when we announced our ADSL line price-cuts – an indication that the broadband war is still raging. Well, we’re taking it to the next level – we’re taking the price cuts to the businesses.

In addition to lowering the line rental costs, we’ve also adjusted our data prices to be more competitive, and we’ve implemented extra features. Our Business DSL products offer a true business-grade service, with lower contention ratios, higher redundancy, network prioritization for business uses and business features like static IPs and soft-capping.

Here’s how our new pricing compares to the competition:

*Telkom prices as of 17/10/2011 & include VAT.

We’ve noticed that the majority of the customers who have moved across to us since we launched our cheaper line rentals, are frustrated Telkom users who are looking for a better deal; and we fear that a large portion of the market is unaware that they can have their ADSL line hosted with an ISP other than Telkom… like us, for example. Transferring your ADSL line to us is quick, easy and involves no additional costs, simply speak to one of our Helpdesk Consultants and they’ll take care of the rest.

The men of Team RSAWEB had a very busy and successful weekend with stage 2 and 3 of the Pro Classic Spring Series being held on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Saturday saw the second stage of the series, the Hill Climb, an approximate 2.2km individual hill climb whereby cyclists climb from the bottom of Malanshoogte to the top. Team RSAWEB rider, Jos Le Roux, took first place and fellow team rider, Edward Greene secured 3rd place – a mere 1 second off the pace, and 0.1 second short of 2nd place.

After leading the Team Competition after Stage 1 (Orbit Tour de Worcester), Team RSAWEB entered the next stage with a firm grip on the competition. Jos’ win also gave him enough points for the General Classification lead and thus receiving the Pink Leader’s Jersey.

Sunday’s Circuit Race was a challenging course for the Team, amidst wind and undulating terrain. Team RSAWEB had 3 riders representing to defend Jos’ lead and control the peloton. Late in the second lap, a convincing group – which had Team RSAWEB rider, Edward Greene, in the mix – broke away and managed to stay away. This group fragmented before the finish line, and it was Edward that put himself in the lead to secure the win.

Back in the peloton, Jos – in the Leader’s Jersey – managed his own break away in pursuit of the lead break. He soloed for two and a half laps without catching that break, but managed to claim 7th position for the day – enough to comfortably defend his points lead of the Pink Leader’s Jersey.

An overall successful day with all Team RSAWEB riders finishing well and defending their lead in the Team Competition.

The Aca Joe Pro Classic Spring Series continues with Stage 4 on 23 October 2011 for the Tiletoria West Coast Express race, but in the interim Team RSAWEB will be focusing on a few national races.

As with any stage race (like the Tour de France) there is competition within competition. Some race just for the stage win, while others race for the overall win. Last weekend, Team RSAWEB lined up for the Orbit Tour de Worcester – first race of the 2011 Aca Joe Pro Classic Spring Series – and kicked off the season with a 3rd place podium position for Jos Le Roux, and 5th place position for team mate Robert Quinn.

Team RSAWEB rider, Jos Le Roux, shares the team’s experience:

On this warm, sunny day for 98km Team RSAWEB spared no energy attacking to get a successful break off the front of the peloton. By half way, 7 riders formed this successful break and opened a 2 minute gap. Once through the 3.2 km dirt section (a shallow climb), the break was down to 4 riders: Jos Le Roux (Team RSAWEB), Leonardo Van Onselen, Danie Marais and Theuns Van Der Bank.

In the chase-group, teams that had missed out were in pursuit of the break. Over the dirt section the peloton split, but then shortly rejoined once on the tar again.

Jos could feel the peloton creeping back to the break (now at 30 seconds) and made a large effort over the final 12km to assist the break. This in turn weakened his sprint against his companions and managed 3rd place for the stage. This, however, has kept Jos in close contention going into the next stage.

As the bunch came in to finish, 30 seconds behind the break, Team RSAWEB lead out the field. Robert Quinn (Team RSAWEB) claimed a small win with 5th place, which has given Team RSAWEB the lead in the team competition, and again, going into the next state, the team is in a strong position.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has opened up the Internet and by introducing future of the Domain Name System – generic top level domains (gTLDs). Aside from the 22 generic TLDs currently in existence, which are the .com, . net, .org, and so forth; and the 250 country codes, “established” companies now have the option to customise their domain needs, for example www.cloudservers.rsaweb.

ICANN identifies “established” companies as:

“Established corporations, organisations, or institutions in good standing may apply for a new gTLD. Applications from individuals or sole proprietorships will not be considered. Applications from or on behalf of yet-to-be formed legal entities, or applications presupposing the future formation of a legal entity (for example, a pending Joint Venture) will not be considered.” (more…)
