Flat and fast and normally a tad chilly start 

 

Who will be playing on this last race before winter ?

Taking place on the Springbokvlakte, this is probably one of the flattest rides in the country. We have a farm in this area and I can tell you there is no such thing as a "koppie" for 50km in any direction.

 

This shows in the elevation totals:

Sondela route: 206m elevation

vs

Emperors(which is suppose to be very flat): 550m elevation according to my Garmin.

 

I haven't raced this one yet, but might just do it this year as I am built for the flat stuff.

I did a 50km last year on an MTB with my son. I am doing 107 km this year.

Some mates and I are doing the road version.

 

2016 memories - chilly morning, loads of moer koffee, fast, flat, rough tar, long never-ending roads and absolutely nothing of scenic value whatsoever.

 

Why did I enter again?

True. Organising team were very friendly and nice setup. The Oom providing live entertainment by belting out some of his favourite tunes was a bit odd, in a nice way though.😊 let's hope he is back as i may just put in a request 😜

This is the one race where us Whales can give it a klap - chilly, flat and crosswinds. All that is missing is some cobbles.
