EDGE OF THE SOFA

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - YOUTH -

ROHAN Dennis’s par­ents won’t be in France to watch him ride the big­gest bike race on the planet this month but they will be glued to their tele­vi­sions.

Es­pe­cially tonight when he will be a ma­jor con­tender for the Stage 1 in­di­vid­ual time trial over 13.8km, which will put the win­ner in the yel­low jersey. But Deb­bie and Bren­ton Dennis say they are proud of their son no mat­ter what he achieves on a bike.

“I’m very proud of the per­son he has be­come,” Bren­ton says. “I saw a photo on Face­book the other day when he got the yel­low jersey at the Cri­terium du Dauphine and there were kids who hung around for an hour to get his sig­na­ture.

“And Rohan gave them his time and that’s what makes me most proud.”
