Our first “big” race for Pretoria in a while.
A coldish Autumn morning saw us line up for the start of the Bestmed Capital Classic. The route was fairly boring heading out on the N14 highway towards Krugersdorp and back.
In the end everyone enjoyed a day out on the bike. Andre finished an impressive 16th overall, coming in with the main Elite bunch in a time of 2:20
Philip and Jaco Engelbrecht finished in the Vets bunch with Philip getting 5th (2:28) and Jaco 18th (2:33)
Ronet and Renate raced Ladies for the day.
Congratulations to Ronet getting 8th overall in a time of 2:54
Renate finished 19th in a time of 3:09
Jaco and Ilé took on the tandem. Great result for them with 3rd mixed tandem!
Well done to all!!!!!
So 2015 is a go!!
