Coach Blessing is the newest addition to the GO!Durban Cycle Academy as the second coach at the Inanda Bike Park. He started cycling in 2013 and joined the academy when it was launched in 2016.
He showed great initiative as an older member of the academy, helping out wherever he could and accompanying the team to races. His skills on the bike made him a role model to the younger riders in his community and he will now be a further asset to the programme in his role as cycling coach.
“I love riding and I enjoy training with the kids,” he says. “The GO!Durban Cycle Academy is also making sure that the kids are doing well at school and I hope to see all of them progressing in school and cycling. I always tell them that practice makes perfect and they should never give up in anything they do.”
Welcome to the team, Coach Blessing!
