According to Uys, the Magalies Monster wasn’t easy. “I was feeling a little nervous this morning. The tempo in the beginning was high, but I expected there to be some stiff competition today. Before the first little climb there were at least eight riders fighting it out in front. I held back and waited for the main climb. Digging deep I sprinted for King of the Mountain. I’m definitely fitter than last year, so I’m not feeling as broken. The Magalies Monster takes a lot out of you. The key is not to let up and just stay on the hammer. It’s the challenge that keeps me coming back each year. I’ll definitely recommend this race to riders as it pushes you beyond your limits. It’s an awesome event to be a part of,” says Uys who completed the 75km route in an impressive time of 03hours35minutes23seconds. Nico Sterk came in second, while Andrew Grobler finished third.

For Coetzer, the ProNutro Magalies Monster was absolutely awesome. “The distance, the scenery and the down hills are what make this event so awesome. It’s tough, but a really good race. It’s always good to win. I placed 4th at last year’s race. I’ll definitely be back next year,” says Coetzer who completed the 75km route in a deserving time of 04hours34minutes56seconds. Laura Herd came in second, while Natalie Robbs finished third.
