The first time I remember seeing Seyffert in action was at a race in Port Elizabeth where he basically attacked from the gun. He collected the first sprint prime, but that was that on that day.
Opportunism is obviously in his genes and, over the years, he has collected a lot more accolades than just a sprint prime. A few years ago, he started focusing on mountain biking and I dare say that the discipline – where you usually race from the front – suited his style down to the ground.
It is obvious that he is not scared of failing to give himself a chance of winning. Let’s hope this mantra carries through to his new role and he ends up with some sweet victories for himself and the team.
He is one who has experienced the highs and lows of cycling and I’m hoping this will turn out to be one of the peaks of his career.
Retiring at 32 is (was!) but a pipe dream for most of us.

My honest opinion! I don’t think you can be accused of being a faceless cyclist.
I imagine it can be tempting to be conservative day in and out in a bid to end up near the top regularly. This way you never really lose, but never really win.
Would this be an important mindset for the team next year and do you have any training camps planned?
