Professional Triathlete

HEy Peoplezz.

Managed to get rid of my HORRIBLE virus and managed to drive myself all the way to the 2nd Last event of the BSG-energade series in P.E . I was planning on racing the ITU African Cup in pretoria and had even moved to Pretoria for 2 weeks, for altitude training. Alas i think the Cape Was missing me as i picked up a virus and needed the fresh air of Cape Town to recover.

On my recovery, i decided, that going back up to Pretoria to race after being sick for 2 weeks wouldent be a smart thing to do. Instead there was a second option, the BSG-Energade event ” the race i wanted to do in the first place”.


ARen't we a LOVELY bunch ???:-)

REgistered and my Custom bike  in trainsition i was soon off to hit the “some-what” cold waters of P.E 🙂

Hyped and ready to go, the gun went off sending about 300 of us unruly animals into the indian Ocean. Swim went well but i lacked power and lost the feet of Wian SUllwald and he too lost the feet of RUdolf Naude…

Comming out of the water, i had some catch up as normal….

TYR Wet-suite... MAKES ME LOOK sexy OK!!!

Swim down and bike to come. Onto the bike it was a matter of 70meters that was in need of attention. Although, 70meters doesnt look like a lot from the swim to bike, that can mean the end of your race.”in terms of a podium position” On the bike WIan SUllwald was just 40 meter infront of me, but i COULDNT close the gap. Felt useless! haha

Eventually i caught Wian and we worked together to try and catch Rudolf,Claude and Abrahm. Half way through the bike i saw we were loosing ground big time but all i could do was keep the hammer down!

Into tranisiton and Wian And myeslf were as quick as thevesin and out!

AXUS BIKE .......what more can i say??

The Run went well, and i felt rather good for no real speed work.I managed a 3:13/km average which can be seen on Garmin Connect at this link….
