So we have less then 10 days to go before we embark on our exciting adventure and participate in our first Sani2C mountain bike event. Must admit I am pretty scared after speaking to my mate Pierre today who is currently doing the Joburg2C. He has just completed day 8 of his race from Heidelberg to Scotborough and they do the same route as Sani2C over the last 3 days of their 9 day event. He said it was a tough day 100km and over 80% was single track with lots of hills.
Our training was ambushed last weekend by a injury Greg picked up to his leg - but he is visiting the chiropractor and hopefully he will be fit for the race (even so I still managed to do 280kms on the MTB in the last 7 days). Tomorrow is the tester when we will try to do a 5 hour ride in search of some hills Irene way.
