Old Mutual Joberg2c Update #4

May 4, 2014

Excerpt from Andy Buckley’s Old Mutual Joberg2c 9 Day Stage Race in South Africa.

Day 9-JoBerg2c, Jolivet to Scottburgh.  84km , 1550m down 850m up

We Rode the Beloved Country!

7am start and we were all excited to get this thing going.  We again were in group G, so we got American and jumped into group E.  2 minute gaps for each group. Today I had the best legs of the week.  I knew in five minutes I had gusto. Caught the back of D in no time, hooked into C (where we should be)

Today we flew.  Josh warmed up and we hammered a constant pace on a mixture of sandy double and singletrack.  We spent much of our day in the sugar cane fields, with the leaves slapping us as we pedaled mostly downhill.

Again the crest top views were amazing, but mostly today was about getting to the Indian Ocean at Scottburgh.
