First win of season for UCT's Web Manager
15 August 2002
Shoulder to the wheel: Joey Haasbroek, UCT's new Web Manager, has won her first race of the 2001-02 Pedal Power Association summer season.
JOEY Haasbroek celebrated her new position as UCT Web Manager in style by winning her first ever race in the Western Cape Pedal Power Association (PPA), barely a month after taking office at the Department of Communication and Marketing early in January.
Haasbroek pedalled her way to first place in the Die Wingerd Breakfast Ride in Somerset West in mid-February, covering the 63-km distance in a spry 1:38:25. The race forms part of the PPA's 12-event 2001/2002 summer season.
"I was surprised and pleased," said Haasbroek, whose best result, up to the Somerset contest, was a runner-up spot in a December race. "I see it as good preparation for the Argus in March, a race that I consider as my main goal for the year."
