Viljoen Completes Comeback with Sprint Victory

www.MyPE.co.za:
Conrad Viljoen (Mecer-NMMU) beat the sprinters at their own game in
only his second outing after fracturing his collarbone to win the sixth
leg of the Beachfront
Lodges
Premier Cycling League over 82 kilometres
in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

He beat two breakaway companions – former Bok sprinter Mario Nell
(Friendly City Cycles) and the in-form Antal Meiswinkel (Toyota-Cycle
Lab) – in a sprint finish to stop the clock on 2:05:25.

The 25-year-old, who is better known for his climbing ability, was not
going to be denied in his first bunch race in six weeks, even if it was
against two of the fastest finishers in the province.

Meiswinkel led in the approach to the line, with an attentive Viljoen
and Nell on his wheel. Viljoen was first to kick and neither Nell,
second, nor Meiswinkel, third, had an answer.

The victory was just reward for Viljoen, who initiated the break into a
headwind with eight kilometres remaining. He was immediately joined by
Meiswinkel with Nell – one of the pre-race favourites – bridging the
gap a few moments later.

Conrad ViljoenTwo kilometres out,
Viljoen put in a serious attack on the final rise
in an effort to rid himself of his opponents, but they were equal to
the task.

“I was worried about Mario (Nell) in the sprint and tried to drop him
on the final climb, but he was too strong. I’m ecstatic that I managed
to beat him in a sprint.”

Ronnie Scheffer (Mecer-NMMU) won his third bunch sprint in-a-row to
finish best of the rest in fourth, 41 seconds down.

Wesley Augustyn (Mecer-NMMU), Phillip Erasmus (Friendly City Cycles),
Reghardt Koen (Mecer-NMMU), Kevin Cremer (Volkswagen), Doug Shadwell
(Toyota-Cycle Lab) and Terry Syphus (Volkswagen) completed the top ten.

After a nervous start that was marked by several small attacks,
Augustyn and Luthando Fatyi (Friendly City Cycles) were responsible for
the first serious move when they got away at the start of the second of
five 16km laps.

Toyota-Cycle Lab, who clearly wanted the race to stay together for
their sprinters, took over control of the bunch and made sure that the
two leaders never built up a lead of more than 45 seconds. Their hard
work paid off when the escapees were brought back halfway around the
third lap.

Walmer Club’s hopes of a victory on a course that suited their
strengths were dashed when team captain and another of the pre-race
favourites, Wayne
Pheiffer
, missed the start.
