CVT/CSC takes on South Africa's best in Liberty Life Criterium

South Africa's Team CVT/CSC is looking forward to the challenge of racing against the country's best riders in this weekend's Liberty Life Criterium. With a first prize of ZAR50,000 (USD7,500/EUR6,200) and a total of ZAR107,000 (USD16,100/EUR13,300) in prize money up for grabs, the invitation-only Criterium is the richest event of its kind ever to be held in South Africa.

An amateur team, CVT/CSC will find itself up against South Africa's pro squads in the Liberty Life Criterium, but team manager Chris Willemse Snr is unfazed. "I believe that our Cape riders are good enough to beat the Gauteng-based pro teams," he said. "We will be sending five of our best riders - Wesley Cole, Chris Willemse Jnr, Jayson Berry (still battling with an arm injury), Craig Butland and Simon Brown - to compete in this prestigious and exciting event."
