Speedy Gonzalez

The oddly named Yolande Speedy of IMC Racing Momentum overcame all challengers to grab the gold at the MTN National Cross-country mountain bike championships in George on Saturday.

yourockThe Beijing Olympian notched up an impressive victory over her nearest competitor Erica Green, who was participating in this event as a warm-up to the ABSA Cape Epic. This victory also handed Speedy the national Elite women’s title.

However, I think that it’s pretty freaking impressive that the 38-year-old Erica Green is still performing at such a high level and I’m definitely curious to see what she does at the Epic in April.

Nonetheless, let’s not take anything away from Speedy Gonzalez – she did a pretty impressive job finishing the race with a time of 1:48:46. So take your sombreros off and salute the new champion. Eepa eepa eepa undulay undulay! She no Slowpoke Rodriquez :)
