  1. I honestly don’t see Koeberg opening up any time soon.As said before it’s a privilege to ride there.Any maintenance etc could have been done during pandemic.There is currently protests against the extension of the life of koeberg(by a very very small group)and imo this is the reason it is closed and will remain closed indefinitely.Koeberg has been closed before every time the greenies object to something.It’s easier for them just to remain closed to the public than to deal with those loonies constantly. just my 2C.
  2. Is that price of 110k including the axs and power meter as per bike in pic?or am I missing something?
  3. It seems the Epic results page is currently been run by Eskom 🤦🏻‍♂️
  4. Agree with Hendrik,hate the masks etc but looking at finish line footage there doesn’t seem to be any protocol’s at the Epic.Last thing you need is government officials to close the event down🤦🏻‍♂️
  5. Already a couple of riders withdrawing testing Covid + after prologue 🤦🏻‍♂️
  6. Hence my question. Guest farm, private parking, cctv cameras. how do you walk in and drive away with 12 bikes. Paarl a small community. Someone definitely knows something.
  7. Yip 100% them.The ones just out of school but dishing out ‘life quotes’ on their social media.😂😂😂😂
  8. Specifically youngsters who are ‘pro cyclist’or ‘ pro athlete’ on their social media profiles 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️
  9. 200k Im talking specifically to the youngsters who thinking of a career in cycling. Not those who going to end up just doing well at your local PPA race. Its lekker to follow your passion but somebody’s got to pay your bills. If you want to dream, take a nap.
  10. Tough route but so it should be for SA’s. Basically 20km 400m /lap made for some tough racing.Just my 2c after watching the different age categories.While it was fantastic to see the talent(and I’m talking about male and female)coming thru,it is also interesting to see who IS NOT on the level. To parents out there who have youngsters who have dreams of a career in cycling.If your youngster is 30 min off the pace,or getting lapped,or getting passed by the 40+ Ladies they do not have a future in cycling AS A CAREER.Please make sure your kid has a plan B.I was shocked to see so many youngsters with 200k bikes, all the backup from mom and dad, way off the pace. Yes there is a few young talent coming thru male and female. It still remains very little.
  11. Pity our world tour riders in men and woman won’t be there. ‘Makes for fireworks light
  12. From what I heard all regions gave a bid then CSA decide who gets it. Im sorry but gone are the days of “let’s try give everyone a chance and spread it out.Rider safety should be one of the top priorities .Seriously if a municipality can’t even have semi decent roads,struggling with water and electricity and the area deemed unsafe etc. they should not even be considered .
  13. How should the 50 + men feel riding the same distance as junior men🤭 You got a section of the lap that has road works and a stop-go section in it. nearest government hospital is 30km away and nearest private hospital over 100km away. Sounds about right for the usual CSA organising.
  14. Think they are all working from home at the moment bud.
