PnP Knysna Oyster Festival MTB marathon 2011

2011 proved to be a tough race at the PnP Knysna Oyster Festival, with weather conditions not being too favorable to those who hadn't prepared well. Speaking of me, mainly!! felt really good up to the 35 km mark but the wheels, as it were, or should I say legs really did come off after that and literally went backwards for the remaining 45 Km with unbelievably painful cramping. Needless to say I was just all to happy to finish the race. With rain, wind, mud and the very cold conditions being part of the contributing factors to an already tough day. But I finished and was so happy to see my lovely wife at the end. Big up to my mate Murray who rode a great race.

Lastly, I would just like to thank everyone who was involved with getting me to Knysna with all your contributions and to all who gave me great support. With out you guys, I wouldn't have been there. So thank you. Watch out for my next race which will be at the end of the Month in Stellenbosch.

As soon as I have the results I will post them, but for now here are a few photo's of before and after:

Cheers for now
