We have welcomed Christiaan Klopper as a Positive Sports Solutions sponsored athlete. The 17-year-old Pretoria-based junior road cyclist has an impressive track record and is currently the Gauteng Provincial Road champ.
We selected Christiaan as a sponsored athlete as we see great potential in him and view him as one of the best junior road cyclists in the country. His results speak for themselves; as this year alone he has taken the 1st place at the Gauteng Provincial Champs, 7th at the Value Logistics Fast One and 2nd at Dischem Ride for Sight.
He will be sponsored a HEAD I Speed IV road bike, a pair of LUCK cycling shoes, cycling kit as well as social clothing. In addition to being sponsored by Positive Sports Solutions, Christiaan rides in the professional TEG Security team.
We chatted to Christiaan about his appointment and what it means to him.
How did it feel when you were appointed as a Positive Sports Solutions sponsored athlete?
I was very excited when I found out that I was appointed as a Positive Sports Solutions sponsored athlete and I know that this will take me to the next level, as I’ll have the best equipment there is.
How will the Positive Sports Solutions brand benefit from having you as a sponsored athlete? What can you bring to the table?
I will give Positive Sports Solutions and their brands the best possible exposure I can through social media and by riding my HEAD bike and using their brands in training as well as races.
What are your 2019 cycling goals?
My goals for this year are to finish each elite race in the top 20, to be selected for the world championships, to win both the South African Time Trial Champs as well as the road race, and to be the best junior tour rider.
It’s a great privilege to be chosen as a Positive Sports Solutions sponsored athlete and I’m really looking forward to building a good, long-term relationship with the brand and the team.
