Recommended Posts

Who is also doing the Cape Pioneer this year?

Been looking forward to this all year.

 

I want to put some Treasure the Karoo, STOP FRACKING, stickers on my car and bike.

 

Looks like we may get some rain, and pretty cool temps. hope it does not rain as much as last yr.

 

Organisers, please give a bit more lunch after the race, otherwise it was really awesome.

 

LEKKER MAN!!

Looking at the 'last minute' entry option.... Nothing like a 7 day tromp through the karoo on my SS

yoh yoh yoh yoh...pioneer, undercooked, SS.....sounds like the start of horror movie

 

1 man, 1 gear.....10 millions hills....

Undercooked? Psht....

 

Got a podium finish on Saturday at WCAD 5 series finale..... :ph34r:

 

But I never peak or change how I train or have a schedule or do any of that stuff. I ride as often and as far as possible, I run as often and as far as possible and sometimes I do a push up.

 

But it would be super fun. The rigid SS scouting for when we have our own official category in some of the big races next year....

1 billion rocks...

 

Hope the weather is better than the last year. Totally lost my sense of HTFU during the last 2 stages!!

 

But, yes it is magical to ride in the Karoo.

Nice man, I wanted to chat to mark and geoff at the towers about that....would be awesome. Will tell them we don't want prize money...a sixpack will do.

I don't think anyone is capable of finishing on a ss, especially with a rigid fork and without changing the gearing each day. Katot won't allow it. Katot knows the majority of karoo farmers and they tell him which routes on the farms are not ride-able with a 4 x 4's and then he says right, we will use these routes for the pioneer.
