'Cycling club in Khayelitsha township shifts paradigms'. Clippings from The Times newspaper article and photo spread, Monday May 20.
Velokhaya Elite cyclist, Thando Zothe and Senior Scholar cyclist, Phaphama Kepu delivered impressive performances in their first off-road Duathlon (running/cycling) event.
Thando Zothe won silver in his age group (20-24) at the SA Duathlon Champs held in Potchefstroom on Sunday 5 May - his second duathlon - and has been selected for the 20-24 year South African team to compete in the 2013 Ottowa ITU Duathlon World Championships to be held on August 10.

The five Velokhaya Life Cycling Academy athletes from Khayelitsha who participated in their first duathlon (run-cycle-run) in April can be justifiably proud of their achievements as all five achieved 'top five' positions in their respective age categories, reports Shaun Doch.
