2013 Old Mutual Duo Challenge

This was my first time that I was racing the kind of format of racing. 20km Mountain Bike and then a 8Km trail run. So called Brick session.

Amazing Photo as the sun comes up over the mountains in Stellenbosch. Getting mt T2 ready.


My Titan Team 29er getting some Air time!!! Amazing photo! well done to Chris Hitchcock.


At the start Pieter said there was over 600m of climbing in 2okm so this is one way to shake some weight. The photo says it all!!! 🙂


the gun went off and all the youngsters jumped out of the starting gates as if it was a 100m race!!!! Stuart and i knew what was coming.


After about 8+ attacks from Stuart my legs fell off big time. He was riding really well. Took G-spot to recover well sort off. The Jumps makes me really happy.


On to the run I knew i lost some time but i had good running legs so was really keen to test them. Please not the fast Brookspure flow! As Tim Don always says dirty fast!!!!


In the air shot!!!! have a look at the face!!! yip that’s pain and legs burning like a bonfire!!! After the race i stopped at the spar and this local guys said! “my bru daai shoos is gevaarlik!!!” made my day.


In the end of the race i was 30sec behind Stuart, So i will take a second any day behind him. His really flying at the moment. Well done to him he didn’t make it easy for me.

Was a really fun race and i will be back next year for sure!!!

Next up is Xterra Knysna.

Until i blog again Keep it in the big blade!!!
