Rider Cat Result
Mariske Strauss Elite 1st
Ben Roff Elite 15th
Rab Wardell Elite DNF

Mariske Strauss Mariske takes second win in two weeks, Ben continues progression towards Cape and a big crash for Rab made for a mixed weekend in the Kwazulu-Natal city of Pietermaritzburg.

Mariske carried on her impressive vein of form as she led from start to finish, replicating her race from the Western Cape just 7 days ago and showing what great form she is in just one week ahead of the Cape Epic!

It was a dominant display from the African Champion in Pietermaritzburg and was the ideal opportunity to test out the new course ahead of the World Cup next month.

Ben Roff Ben continued his great form as well ahead of the Absa Cape Epic getting stronger and stronger as the race progressed finishing in a very good 15th position in a star-studded field.

Rab’s unlucky streak continued as he crashed out on the rock garden getting severe concussion but with no serious injury we hope the bad luck is now gone.

All riders go into the invitational Songo Champions race on Wednesday in positive spirit and looking forward to the tough tests ahead.
