Making coffee at 4:16 in the morning...
Anette on her way to the start.
The Giant waiting for me to get moving.
Waiting for the start of the 80km race. Small field.
Even time for a selfie.
We've done parts of the route a few times in other races. It was good to know a bit about what was lying ahead. Knowing that the route was fairly fast and flat gave us confidence for the ride. With such a small field it was also not long before I found myself on a solo 80km ride.
Crossing the Vaal river.
Crops are looking good.
Having a good time!
