Johann van Zyl

Rider

Johann van Zyl is a former double under 23 SA National Road Champion. Johann was ecstatic at signing his first professional contract with Africa’s Team in 2013. He has always been a hard-working rider and a helper on the team from day one. In 2015 took out the stage 5 at the Tour of Austria after an impressive solo breakaway and almost did the same at the Giro d’Italia in 2016.

Being in more breakaways than almost anyone else, Johann will take his aggressive riding style into 2018. With close friend Louis Meintjes also back in our African Team, you can expect inspired performances from Johann over the course of the next season.
