DAY TWO Friday 6th September 2019 Dullstroom

The GS challenge SA runs from Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th September in Dullstroom, Mpumulanga


Dullstroom is not only one of the highest situated towns in South Africa, it is also one of the coldest. Emnotweni, meaning 'Place of Prosperity', was added to the name recently. The buildings in Dullstroom - Emnotweni is a both 19th and 20th century designs.


Good morning all....Yesterday was interesting with a GPS route challenge over very tricky roads one lady ended up in a dam but all ok...a rear wheel off and on test...A stamina test...Running with 2 tyres...Picking your bike 4 times then pushing it uphill for about 25 m...

A slow race over tricky route...Last test for the day  zig zag through marked course...All in all WC guys seemed to do well...At this stage I am not too sure how we featuring on the points table...Would estimate Freestate the WC...A turn up for the books it s very cold rainy misty morning....Going to be an interesting day....


At this early stage after day one seems Free State and WC the stronger contenders but difficult to gauge on points as the points scoring is confusing after day one all you see are 30 separate mixed up points in no order...After today it should become clearer...
