Mariske Strauss Elite 1st

African Continental Championships Race 1 = Gold Medal

In a dominant display leading from start to finish, Mariske became the Champion of Africa in only her first year as an Elite rider since moving up from the Under 23 category.

Despite being in the middle of training for the Absa Cape Epic which includes long distance training miles and losing some of the 'zip' needed for the short style XC racing, Mariske rode a controlled race finishing over a minute ahead of her nearest rival showing that she is currently the stringest rider in the continent of Africa!

We are super proud of such a great early season result from this talented young lady!
