WPP readies for yearend series this weekend WINDHOEK The 2017 Windhoek Pedal Power (WPP) cycling series will come to an end this weekend when it hosts the last leg of the series at the Döbra Loops on Sunday morning. The WPP Road Cycle series consists of six races held throughout the categories – 10-kilometres (km), 30 km, 50 km, 70 km and 100 km. Pierre du Plooy, chairperson of WPP, said they are expecting about 100 cyclists who will cover a total distance of 90 km for the Elite riders, along with the Under-23 riders and Junior Men. Cyclists can enter in various age group categories, ranging from the Elite and Junior Men to the Under-10 boys and girls. The casual or social cyclists are usually not timed and can cover any distance they like. Du Plooy said this year’s team series riders have improved tremendously and women riders have also shown huge improvement in their races. “We now have the female cyclists starting with their own race, not like we did in the past when they started at the same time as the male riders. The female riders are doing really well competing by themselves in their own race,” he said. Du Plooy added that this year, team riders learned how to work in groups and this is a positive sign of how cyclists are growing year in and year out. “In the past years, teams never really knew how to work for each other and protect their lead cyclist, but this year, riders showed maturity on how to guide their lead until the sprint, even though they’re all going for a win when racing.” Du Plooy said with Sunday being the last road race of the year, they are expecting the riders to bring their A-game when the race starts at Carin Park outside Windhoek. He also stated that their goal for 2018 is to have more women teams competing as they strive for the betterment of the sport. - Nampa
