Cape Town - It was with mixed emotions that RoadCover announced that Kent Main, Tour of Good Hope winner, will be joining the Dimension Data Continental Cycling Team.

Main’s steady rise to prominence was crowned with his exciting win in the Tour of Good Hope last week, showing his mettle in a close finish which saw the 21-year-old snatching the title by a single second.

“We set up The RoadCover Cycling Team as a stepping stone and platform to grow young and exciting talent and help these athletes progress closer towards the ultimate goal of the European roads. Having said that, we are very sad to see Kent move on,” said Eugene Beck, CEO of RoadCover. 

“We are a close-knit team and all of us are very happy for Kent,” said RoadCover Cycling Team Manager, Nic White.

“Kent Main is a potential player in the international cycling arena with the physical abilities and mental attributes to play there. He is a great team player, a gentleman and a talented cyclist,” added White, whose strategic leadership and guidance has created one of South Africa’s top cycling teams.

“RoadCover is honoured to play an instrumental role in developing our South African athletes. We are proud of the RoadCover Team and look forward to our team continuing their strong start to the year.

“We wish Kent the very best in his future career and look forward to RoadCover continuing to play a key role in growing South African cyclists that can be received by international teams,” concluded Beck.
