South Africa’s Daryl Impey firm favourite for Time Freight SA Road Championships
Daryl will be returning from a highly successful Santos Tour Down Under where he was instrumental in helping his Orica GreenEDGE team mate Simon Gerrans win the overall classification of the year’s 1st UCI ranked tour.
With 2 top 10 finishes in the 6 stage tour Daryl also made sure that his team won the Team General Classification as well.
Daryl will be returning to South Africa to try and secure the SA Champions jersey .He will be up against some hard completion with the likes of John-Lee Augustyn and defending champion Jay Thomson who will both be riding for their MTN Qhuebeka team.While Daryl will be riding on his own his experience should see him being in with a good chance of contesting the final sprint.Robert Hunter found himself in the same situation in 2012 and while the racing was negative at times with most of the field waiting for him to make a move,Daryl is as strong and as experienced to work it out on the day.
It will be good to have the jersey back in the Pro Tour bunch should Daryl succeed.
