Yesterday Crank attended the Songo.info charity group ride on table mountian with Burry Stander, Christof Sauser and Dan Hugo. Its not everyday that you get you share your local trails with two mountainbike World Champions and an Xterra Champion. We then attended the cocktail dinner in Greenpoint and got to hear to some great thoughts, tips and training secrets from the three legends.
We were blessed with a picture perfect day in Cape Town. After a quick shot of Redbull at the top of Kloof Nek road we headed off across the slope of table mountain towards the blockhouse and up onto tafelberg road. The sketchy sandy paths caught some riders off guard but a great ride was had by all.
The cocktail dinner was a great end to the day. The three legends shared with us their wisdom regarding training, nutrition and the importance of mental fitness when going into a big event. There was also some great prizes that were auctioned off with all the proceeds going to Songo.info. A big thanks to Nic Lamond and his team for putting this event together and to Burry, Christof and Dan for being such great ambassadors to their sports and sponsors.
