    bottlenecks happened..... I drove over 2 ladies that stopped half way down technical sections, and fell a total of 5 times..... but hell what a lekker day out! Luckily my chain snapped just past one of the marshals on the MX bikes. They organized a pick up for me, so all lekker!! Just wish I could finish my last 7kms.

    But will definitely be back next year. Proper adventure! Maybe they should market it as an adventure rather than a race........

    Yes was a great 'adventure'!
    Luckily I didn't fall but swambo fell at the last tunnel we went through - in that marmite mud. Just a bruise and very disgusted as she was full of mud

    We started late in Y group and had major bottle necks but I had fun standing in the cues. Total time was 5h10 which 2h00+ was standing still and top speed was 62km/h

    Lekker!!

    Was an awesome race, total time 3h40m, but Strava is showing 3h24m, started in Group N. Will do it again next year but with a better seeding.

    I have never seen so many people fall in my life, saw one guy break his hip and another break his arm. After that I took things a bit slower on the obstacles.

    My personal opinion...it was a disaster , they said on Super Cycling in the week they said that it was not planned well , and all the bottleneck groups , every single person that i past after the race complained.....some of the people said the race was planned in an office definitely not with a bike.

    Wont do it again next year , it is just bringing my Race tech chip seeding down.

    2H36MIN ON 22KM ...madness

    It will be cool because they took all the nice parts and combined them on the video , if you were there it was a completely different story......
