Comment: tough.

Encouragement: you will survive.

 

It's a great race. I just hope it doesn't p*ss down like last year!

Does anyone know if it will be possible to collect numbers on the day? The race office appear not to want to answer their phone or reply to my email.

seems like it will be great, hope my legs will handle so soon after r4s, same start time, hope the first climb breaks the group up, so it's safer...

I'd love to do this race this year... but alas...

 

Don't know why people are so afraid of this race. It only has one proper hill. :whistling: post-9143-0-62560200-1329144091.jpg

make sure you warm up well, the pace up Krugersdorp hill at the start line can be an unpleasent surprise and drop experience. From there on out it rolls...

Just remember the nasty cat eye orange stuff on the road at about 70-80Ks in the cradle! Hope the race officials are aware of this and will inform all the cyclist about it! You will come off very hard is you hit one of those !

is this the same route as Dome 2 Dome last year (aside from hillsnacks in the beginning )?

 

Sort of the same route. You are right hill snacks is in the beginning, but you go down Sterkfontein into the n14 instead of the Game reserve. But from there on it is the same!
