This past weekend I competed in the South African Downhill Champs in Pietermaritzburg, and this race doubled up with the second round of the Gauteng Downhill series.
I am over the moon with how I rode and my approach to the race weekend as a whole, I was fortunate enough to have some practice laps with Greg Minnaar, allowing me to understand how two practice and race more efficient and effectively.
I couldn’t be more happy to walk away with a 3rd place in elite (and overall) in the SA Champs race, an achievement that is rarely heard of. And my first elite win in the Gauteng Dh race.
Things are starting to come together for my Europe trip, and this result has given some more momentum and confidence to my season. The hard work is starting to pay off, and its time to put in the hard yards.
Thank you for all your constant support, this result couldn’t be done without you and the team.
