Domestique

Domestique (4/6)

  1. Super stoked for Alan's 4th place, and he has been making solid improvements in each race this season, and peaking towards the Olympics. Definitely has a shot at the podium in Tokyo My dark horse pick for Tokyo though must be Cink, watch this space!
  2. Crap, didn't know it was an earlier start today!!! !$@#$%!!! Turned on the TV at 12h00, and looks like there has already been some interesting developments!! I think we are in for an exciting day!!
  3. Having spent several months living and riding around McGregor, watching the video put a smile on my face, and brought a tear to my eye Very inspiring story 👍
  4. Some do, some don't... Most don't Stilwater reimbursed me 75% of my entry fee for the Origin of trails event in April (and allowed me to keep my freebie jersey I received). Why did they do this? Probably because it is the right and honourable thing to do... So kudos to them for doing so, and for having been very clear on their website about the risks of the event being cancelled, and their reimbursement policy in the event of it being cancelled 👍
  5. Ok, thought maybe as much... 👍 And I would then probably agree with the "many doping allegations" levelled against almost anyone and everyone who rode bike races way back then...
  6. Like most of the world I support "whoever is playing against England" lol
  7. Honest, yet possibly naive question I guess 😊 Will wait for the explanation about Eddy Merckx 👍
  8. Excuse my ignorance, but who is "that cheat"?
  9. Totes agree!! The race organisers should refund the entrants, or at the very least refund 75% like Stilwater did when they cancelled the Stellenbosch Origin of Trails ride earlier in the year (April), which was also due to lockdown measures.
  10. At those kinds of incredible savings, I ordered 2 from them (but being CWC, they told me they're are waiting for stock from suppliers and will deliver in 17 weeks time...)
  11. Hey Theans Happy to be one of the guinea pigs 🐷 I ride MTB, and live in Cape Town CBD. - Mark
  12. Really interesting video, and makes me laugh thinking about weight weenies spending R1200 on a 25g bottle cage haha 🤣
  13. I also ride alone, so happy to ride during the day together if you want. Drop me a PM - Mark 👍
  14. Hey Wolver Not exactly sure of day, but think it was a Tuesday, and around 14h00 in the afternoon. I find that I now feel safer riding later in the afternoon/evening (around 16h00-18h00) as there are more people out and about, than during the middle of the day when the area is quieter. I have now changed my "old" route and avoid the areas around Lions Head, and now generally ride from Camps Bay up through the Glen, then Tafelberg Road (or above Deer Park / Disa Park) to the blockhouse and back.
