Following her joBerg2c victory, alongside Mike Posthumus, Seamus Allardice caught up with Amy McDougall, at Bootleggers in Tokai. The dormakaba rider is a two time world single speed champion, the winner of the inaugural Absa African Women’s jersey in the Absa Cape Epic last year. 2019 though has been difficult for the former hairdresser, turned professional mountain biker. But after her big win at South Africa’s longest stage race she’s feeling confident and is once again happy to be on the bike.

It’s been a long road from privateer to full-time rider with the support of dormakaba for Amy McDougall.
