Reinardt Janse van Rensburg
ACI  (NOW LEADOUT) PROVIDED ME WITH THE PLATFORM TO FIRST EXPERIENCE CYCLING IN EUROPE. I BELIEVE THIS EXPERIENCE WAS IMPERATIVE TO MY DEVELOPMENT AS A PROFESSIONAL CYCLIST, AS I LEARNED A LOT ABOUT THE SPORT, THE LEVEL OF EUROPEAN CYCLING AND ALSO ABOUT USING A PROFESSIONAL, BUT REALISTIC APPROACH TO IMPROVE AS A CYCLIST.

WHO HAS HAD THE MOST INFLUENCE ON YOUR CYCLING CAREER AND WHY? BARRY AUSTIN, HE JUST TAUGHT ME AND HELPED ME WITH A LOT OF THINGS IN MY CYCLING THUS FAR.

Johann van Zyl
WHO HAS HAD THE MOST INFLUENCE ON YOUR CYCLING CAREER AND WHY? THIS IS REALLY A TOUGH ONE TO ANSWER AS THERE’S A LONG LIST OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE HELPED ME IN MY CAREER. MY FATHER IS DEFINITELY RIGHT AT THE TOP, DRIVING ME TO AND FROM RACES FROM THE AGE OF 10. ALWAYS MAKING SURE I HAVE GOOD EQUIPMENT. IN A WAY WITHOUT ADDING ANY PRESSURE, HE ALWAYS PUT MY NEEDS FIRSTS AND HIS SECOND. MY WHOLE FAMILY HAS BEEN GREAT SUPPORT ALL THESE YEARS. BARRY AUSTIN ALSO GETS A SPECIAL MENTION AS I’VE LEARNT SO MUCH FROM HIM WHEN I TRAINED WITH HIM FOR 5 YEARS AND EVEN NOW AS A MENTOR, HE’S ALWAYS THERE TO GIVE ADVICE AND HELP OUT.

WHO HAS HAD THE MOST INFLUENCE ON YOUR CYCLING CAREER AND WHY? PROBABLY BARRY AUSTIN AND DOUG RYDER. BARRY IS THE GUY THAT BUILT ME UP. IN 2011 I WAS IN A BAD SPOT AND WAS ON A TEAM THAT DIDN’T FULFIL IT’S PROMISES. DOUG THREW ME A LIFELINE AND BELIEVED IN ME AND NOW I’M ON A PROFESSIONAL TEAM.
