For the love of rac­ing

The Witness - Wheels - - RACING -

Ernst van Dyk grabbed gold for South Africa in the H5 road race at the UCI Para-cy­cling Road World Cup, held in Pi­eter­mar­itzburg on Satur­day. He is get­ting a spe­cial rac­ing wheel­chair built for the Par­a­lympics in Rio, where tech­nol­ogy adds the edge. Like most ath­letes, Van Dyk pays his own way, with no Sas­coc sup­port.
