Our next big event is the 2010 Attakwas Extreme Mountain Bike Challenge on the 16th of January.
The guys at Dryland uploaded the route details and profiles a few days ago and it looks like they have tweeked the route a bit. In 2010 it will now be 135km long with 2950m of climbing! I have now officialy renamed the race to Atta"eina my"kwas! Considering that we have set ourselves a goal to do a 6:30 hour ride, it's going to hurt allot!
Training is going very well for myself and very bad for poor Jaco. He has been struggling with his sinuses for three weeks and has skipped some longer rides. I have had a really good month clocking over 1000 kms on the mtb, nearly twice as much as I did last year.
Here is the route map and profiles. Read more about the race at www.dryland.co.za
