Finally SD lands in Africa,in the most southern point of it.In the beautiful town of Cape Town,South Africa.
This,it has happened due to a friend of SD, Mr Craig Symons. Craig, rode for Bianchi Lotto Arbitrage in Europe,before relocating to Australia where he is at this current moment. One of his friends & cyclist companion was looking for a team.Something different than the usual.Therefore Nathan Baadjies,at the young age of 18 joins the SaddleDrunk Team.
Nathan,will be racing in South Africa with our colours and it will also be acting as Brand Ambassador expanding our brand in South Africa.
Nathan, has won a copious number of races at his young age,this is a short history of his victories.
Some of his podium finishes are as follows:
- second @ a lights by linear Criterium;
- third @ Killarney race night series;
- third in a timetrail @ cycling SA youth event;
- Team Western Provence came second on the rode race and third overall on the GC;
- Track Racing Team sprint Fourth
- Won all my PPA 18 races.
Nathan turned semi-pro not long ago with a team in SA,but he was not fitting in with team politics.Therefore he decided to leave the team and start racing individually to start building up more confidence and to make a bigger step into Europe.
SaddleDrunk Team & Community will help Nathan in achieving his goal.

Have a good night from us.
