2015 Xterra Buffelspoort

My first race of the season didn’t go as planed. ‪#‎BuffelspoortXterra‬ is one hard fun race. Out of the water first and was leading the bike till about halfway. From there in it just went backwards. Had a big crash, kept going.

I was 3rd of the bike with 2nd in sight but just didn’t have any legs after a hard bike. Not happy with my end result 4th but happy with the first part of the race. Thanks to xterra South Africa and  Stillwatersports for putting on a great show! ‪World class‬ event!

Stellenbosch mountains, full of snow.

This Friday morning started off with a 5:30 am swimming session as it does every friday , it turned a interesting corner. I saw on twitter my fried Hendrik said its snowing on the mountains surrounding Stellenbosch. I looked out the window and I saw it was so white and I have never seen it as low as that. I called Antonie, said you keen to run up the mountain? He was like yes please. Hendrik picked us up and off we when to Jonkershoek. If I feel like doing something crazy I know I can always count on these to crazy guys! What Legendary mates!!!

That’s me jumping up like a crazy guy! So excited as this was going to be my first time in the snow ever. Yip it took me 24 years to get to that point to make a snow ball and chuck it as someone. Boy and did it feel good. Felt like a kid again. 🙂

After about an hours run up the mountain we got to this amazing snowed up hill top of Jonkershoek. It didn’t take a long time before the first snow ball started flying around. Man it feels so good to live.
