Ashleigh Moolman Pasio had towering expectations prior to the national time trial championship in South Africa, but in the heat of the moment, she could not get beyond the fifth time. The cause being that Ashleigh has presumably taken a nutrient that her body did not agree with shortly before the time trial.
Ashleigh reached the finish line exhausted and dehydrated, and crashed while hitting a barrier. She immediately received medical assistance and is doing well considering the circumstances. It doesn’t look like Ashleigh will suffer from any serious physical damage. She hopes to start the road race which is being held on Saturday.
