Watched it, i thought you guys were mad, the climb after the ride was a killer (up the concrete strip) i saw guys literally craling up the hill.

Well done to anyone who rode and ran. :clap:

I did my first Xterra in Knysna. I am hooked . It was a fantastic event.Bikes took a hammering with all the mud.As for the run up the hill Eish. :blink:

Other than a great event my wife finished her 2nd Knysna Exterra by winning the KTM mountain bike in the lucky draw. :clap: :clap: :clap: I think the big 5 will be a great option. Will have to learn to paddle though.

No reason to paddle for the big 5, but as good an excuse as any to learn to!

I do not like the road race( I do not feel safe on the N2),it is either that or the paddle, me thinks the paddle wins hands down.

Also did the big 5, thoroughly enjoyed all of them. The Xterra was great, I was reminded never to underestimate a shorter-distance event. It was tough and my MTB gave me cr@p from the word go, but still enjoyed it a lot.

 

Out of interest, I'd rate the Big 5 as follows, from what I enjoyed most to least:

1) Featherbed trail run

2) Xterra

3) Knysna half marathon

4) MTB marathon

5) Road race

 

Definitely back for more next year.

For me it was:

1. Xterra

2. Featherbed trail run

3. MTB marathon

4. Road race

5. Half marathon (the paved downhill and crowds are not my thing!)

I'll also be back next year!

She was the 6th name out of the draw.She said from the start that she would win it. Power of positive thought. :clap: :clap:

I do not know the KTM bicycles. No one in PE stocks them.Does anyone have any input?
