OLIVIA AND SHARI WIN MEDALS AT NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Two of our riders had a very successful weekend at their respective national championships.
From CANYON//SRAM Generation, Olivia Shililifa earned two silver medals in the Namibian U23 ITT and road race titles. Olivia only started racing three years ago and has more experience racing MTB than on the road. She was delighted with her two races.
“I’m super proud of what I have achieved in a short time. I can’t wait to join my teammates soon,” said Olivia who will fly this week to Spain to join her CANYON//SRAM Generation teammates at the next training camp.
Shari Bossuyt, new rider to CANYON//SRAM Racing in 2022, won the Belgian Elimination Race, finished second in the Points Race and fourth in the Scratch Race to cap off strong performances in the Belgian track national championships.
“I’m happy with this start to the season in 2022 and in the new team colours. It’s my second national track title after winning the Omnium in 2019, but it feels good to win the Elimination race and also go well in the Points and Scratch races. Now, I’m off to join my teammates at our next training camp.”
