Discussion, prior to a stage in the Mzansi Tour

This is my site where you can read about my latest adventures in the world of cycling and biking.
You will find news of my races, with our Team Europcar SA and the young talented riders that I ride with. Also see my other interest - touring. Preferably on my mountain bike through some fantastic mountain scape or African bush, infested with the wild, as only Southern Africa can offer!

Riders sign on for the start of the Mzansi Tour

Please take a look at my galleries of races and tours, many images have been taken by me, but the great ones have been taken by some of my friends, Wayne Hayward, Craig Dutton, or many others that I hope I have credited. Cycling is a splash of colour in a multitude of backgrounds and sharing our experiences with others can only partly be done by good pictures, for the entire taste you have to have been there!

When they said you would ride the equivalent of 2 miles in altitude gain in 4 days, it sounded a little tough.
