week i made my first trip to prague and i have to say it was very much worth it.its an amazing city and a the race course they set up for us was very cool.we raced down the stairs infront of the prague castle and then up the cobbled street through the old town.

the race kicked of realy fast on monday evening and it wasnt long before we were a group of 5 racing around the 3minute circuit.the race comprised 60minutes plus one lap of maimal effort.after half way it was down to myslef,jaroslav kulhavy and jan the end it came down to a long sprint in which i just got the better of specialized team mate jarosav and czech specialized rider jan.

on thursday cherise and i got to check out prague properly and we were joined by dylan and peter our team mechanic and soigneur.we hit all the tourist sights and lunch at the hard rock was a serously good day and a nice way to take a day off.

on friday we were back on the road and started our journey back to sa.first a 5hr drive to frankfurt and then an 11hour flight which was delayed by 2hrs.once back in sa,we boarded our last flight to durban and made it home by 3pm on sat.

on sunday we lined up at the sardine mtb classic in port was super muddy but the weather on the day was great.the only thing better was the course.awesome job done by the bundu bashers.everyone had a blast.i had fairly decent legs and managed a comfortable ride to take the win ahead of james reed(bmc) and andrew hill.

this week is a big training one for also hoping to have some legs left for saturdays sa xco leg at rietvlei,jhb.

cheers for now
