this weekend saw the running of the annual karkloof mtb classic.with some weary legs i decided to only race the xc race and thus kick my legs back into action without fatiguing them further. i had a great start and rode away with phillip buys at the end of the first lap.we stayed together for most of the very technical and challenging race.with two laps to go i got a small gap and held it to the finish.i was quite spent at the end and realy had to reach for some usn bottles after. this week ill try to recover and eat some more,my mouth is finally allowing me to do the weekend our specialized team will race in the sa cup run on the same track as next weekends opening round of the world cup in pmb, hope to see you there cheers burry
