Another tough day, but all in all another great ride. We started off on a district road but were soon on a great piece of singletrack which wound its way around and over a good few of those rolling hills in Natal.
More fast district road was followed by a nasty ascent up through a forest to the second water point. It was seriously heart racing stuff but as always the water stop was most welcome. Glen (Forrest) was on hand to take our bikes and lube them whilst we availed (stuffed actually !) ourselves of the refreshments on hand.
Dropping down through a great forest singletrack made the killer hillclimb worthwhile and gave our butts a chance to recover since we had to stand to control the bikes. More rolling farmland was finally followed by teh district road into Kamberg and the Glengarry caravan park.
We came in in 6h23mins eventually ending in 143 place overall for the race - Not shabby.
