Local cycling star to participate at world cycling champs

Promising South African cyclist Azulde Britz will hope to put the experience she recently gained racing in Europe to good use when she competes in the World Road Championships next week.

The 17-year-old Pretoria schoolgirl has been included in the national squad for the world event which takes place in Innsbruck, Austria, from 23 to 27 September.

Britz returned this week from a trip to Europe where she competed in the Watersley Junior Women’s Challenge in the Netherlands.

“In April the Cornwall Hill College matric pupil rode as a guest rider for a Danish outfit, Team Rytger.

“We stayed in contact during the year and I was invited back to guest-ride for them in the Watersley Challenge. I have experienced some hectic racing in Europe to say the least, but it has been totally worth it. I have learnt so much racing with the team and also the dynamics of European racing. The girls race hard, fast and aggressively,” Britz explained.

Britz, who lives in Irene, said one of the key lessons she had learnt was to have belief in her ability and her training.

“In addition, I realised that I can be competitive in Europe and with time and more experience anything is possible. Having raced on the continent has helped me prepare for the world champs, not just physically, but mentally as well,” said Britz shortly before her departure back to Europe.

Representing South Africa for the first time, Britz said she wanted to make sure she enjoyed every moment of the experience.

“My goal is to give it everything I have. I would like to apply all that I have learnt through the years and from my European racing,” she concluded.
