Yes, the route was less than half the original. So it does not do to compare times with previous races. But it sounds good to me that I finally rode a Sub 3 hours official Argus race. Nearly broke 2 hours!
But the South Easter blew quite heavily up on Hospital Bend. Past Grootte Schuur Hospital, where Chris Barnard did the first ever successful human heart transplant so long ago. We also did not get any grace on the incline at Edinburgh Drive, also known as Whine Burg Road.
The route felt a bit crowded with a possible 35000 people entering the race. Yes, 35 Thousand!
I enjoyed my race today! No excuses, no regrets!
Will wait for the official time, my little cycling computer stated my time as 2 hours 7 minutes for the race.
My team manager also had a great day at the Victoria and Albert Waterfront in Cape Town, waiting for his star athlete to take him to beer and home…
What a day!
Well done!! You al look so fit.
Congratulations on your milestone achievement!
And what weather for it !!!
Congratulations on the 20th Argus and that excellent time. Have a safe journey home.
Way to go!! Great to see you and that awesome medal.
Life in the old dog, as they say! Well done mister 🙂
A feat to be justly proud of!
