The event started with the flying sprint qualifyers. Jordan September set a time of 11.88s on a cold and rainy winters night. Duwayne Adams followed with 11.90s and Wade Theunissen came in third on 12.08. Dirk van Zyl was the top veteran at 12.63s.
There was a Western Cape cycling Presidents award ceremony that followed. This was to recognize the role that Willie Engelbrecht played in building cycling in South Africa. Willie said that his journey started at the velodrome (old Bellville track) and that that young champions on the track are bound to be the champions of the future.
Racing continued for all categories. The team pursuit was interesting since it was held over only 8 laps and the speed was kept high. Kinetic Pro set the best time at just under 50kmh average for the 2km.
The final event of the night was the 3-up match sprint and this was the highlight for many spectators. Jordan September led out the sprint and it looked as if Duwayne Adams was going to close him down with Wade Theunissen also in the mix. It was decided on the line with Jordan just pipping Wade and Duwayne. It was great racing to round off a top notch night at the velodrome.
