 WCC Training Camps for Athletes – men & women
So far, athletes from Algeria, Seychelles, Mauritius, and Ethiopia have joined the long-term male road trainees. They are accompanied by coach, Peter-Lee Jefferies from South Africa. Other athletes plus coaches from Egypt and Rwanda should be joining them shortly. Most will stay until the end of September. WCC Africa Director and CAC Advisor Jean-Pierre van Zyl joined the training camp in Aigle.
These camps provide a wonderful opportunity for African riders to benefit from intensive training in the company of other young athletes. They also gain valuable racing experience in Europe.
Over the years, several athletes from WCC Africa have moved on to join WCC high-level trainees in Aigle and then succeeded in signing professional contracts, not least Eritreans Merhawi Kudus, Natnael Berhane and Daniel Teklehaimanot, all of whom now ride for Team Dimension Data.
