  10. The third instalment of Contego Segment Hunter at Hoogekraal's Cape Cobra turned out to be a fiercely contested battle. Click here to view the article
  11. Shortly after announcing the segment, Darryn Stow's title was snatched by Die Muishond. Darryn went back to rectify things but that KOM fell a few hours later when Tiaan Jordaan raised the bar with an outstanding effort setting a new mark of 9:13. This put our challenger, Nils Hansen, under some serious pressure to perform, forcing him to employ some drastic measures. https://www.strava.com/segments/5831618 Tiaan wins with South Industries The team at South Industries were super impressed with Tiaan's KOM claiming efforts on Cape Cobra. Through some light Strava stalking they noticed that Tiaan had recently broken a rim. South Industries jumped into action. How do I ride this segment?
