Perfect last paragraph to the racing calendar

So the 94.7 came….and now it is gone.
What a blast!!

The VB riders went out with one mission and one only. To win. Which they did. Jaco too honours to finish the year of on a high.
Lots of pics and fun on the day with a couple of guys doing two laps and enjoying the views and laughs.

Well done to all competing and most importantly completing the race. It remains one of the toughest races on the calendar.
