Today I raced a USN cup race near Midrand....this race was ideal for the type of training that I'm busy with now., from the gun I went out blazing...,so fast that I arrived at one of the marshal points before the marshal managed to get there. With the slight detour I rejoined the route somewhere around 30th place. I swiftly worked my way back to the sharp end of the race and had control of it all again! I managed to win the 50km race in a time of 1h44min.
The route was super fun! Fast and flowing singletrack..,this was the kind of stuff I grew up on in this part of the valley!! Beats a training ride on a roadbike anytime!!
I feel strong and my weight is coming down perfectly! The next race that I will be doing is the World Cup in Windham USA and I have a good feeling about this one!! After that I'll do the Knysna Oyster festival race and then we still have SA champs before the Olympics as well! Keep it together!! The support everywhere from everyone is amazing in this time! Thank you!
