conclusion to a great time at home...

the past few eeks have been incredible on the south coast.the weather is magnificent even though its the middel of winter and the soccer world cup vibe that swallowed the whole of sa was so intense.

last week was a realy hard week for me training wise,i had to start turning the screws to get my body in shape for the most important time of my season.i start of this weekend with the sa championships in pretoria and then i leave for europe to race two wolrd cups and the world marathon championships all on back to back weekends.

as a good leg opener i decided to race the toti 69'er road race in amanzimtoti.the club there does a great job at hosting the event and the route is a mostly coastal route that goes all the way down to pennington and back.i had some tired legs leading into the race but when the racing started felt pretty good and very excited.a group of 8 riders got away early with the house of paint pro team represented well with 4 the end it came down to a sprint which i managed to win ahead of dean edwards with some smart menouvring rather than all out power.

i write this as im already up in pta for the race this is absolutely freezing.we definitely have it good on the coast!for all those close to pretoria on the weekend,stop in and check out the racing at the fountains nature reserve.

happy trails
