Morgan Jones took part in the SA Road Cycling Championships for Juniors in KZN on 22 and 23 June 2019.
He rode as Eden (SWD) and Western Cape Champ in his Western Cape Champions jersey as the leader of the u13 boys team. The top 4 riders from each province were selected for this event.
The first race was the Individual Time Trial over 10km which Morgan won convincingly by 49 seconds.
2nd to 4th place were within 4 seconds of each other. The time trial is known as “the race of truth” as it is a measure of true ability.
The second race was the 32km team road race which Morgan came 4th in after dominating for more than 31km.
The finish was close with 9 seconds from 1st to 4th. The road race is very tactical and often the sneakiest(cleverest) rider wins!
Morgan was awarded the gold medal and trophy and SA Champions Jersey which he gets to wear for the next year in any road cycling races.
