03 March 2021 | Sports
Namibia's Vera Looser is in Cairo, Egypt, taking part in the African Continental Road Championship which consists of a road race, time-trial and a team time-trial.
The competition runs till 6 March and the cyclist said on her Facebook account that the decision to fly to Cairo was a last-minute decision.
Looser on Monday said they were able to look at half of the race course day.
“Half, because we are only allowed to ride on fully closed roads.
“It is nothing like I expected. The lap is just under 14 km and has an elevation gain of 240 metres per lap. It is really either up or down and it will be an interesting time trial and road race,” she wrote on social media.
The cyclist is preparing for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games slated for 28 July to 8 August.
