  2. Gert looking cool before heading up the hill. This is where it all starts. Dropping in under the Bloemslang board atop Bloemendal Wine Estate. Strava's Live Segments announcing a new Bloemslang champ. Gert never rests. Even while celebrating with a wheelie, he's on the lookout for more KOMs to claim. Our victorious Contego Segment Hunter heroes ride off into the sunset. The Bloemslang - Just the Drop leaderboard: While Gert Heyns sits on the top spot, it is unlikely that previous KOM holder and local rider Louis Bresler-Knipe will allow it to stand without a fight.https://www.strava.com/segments/10658168 Grand Prize: Contego Unit Trust worth R30,000 At the end of the series, Contego are giving away R30,000 worth of unit trusts.
