TRACK PROVINCIAL - SILVER MEDALS
22 January 2019
With the racing season kicking off in full force this weekend with the Gauteng Provincials, hosted in Pretoria on a circuit around the union buildings, this promises to be another great year for the team and our sponsors. No rest for the wicked as our next race is already next weekend, being the Value Logistic Fast One race in Midvaal, and soon thereafter SA National Championships also hosted in PTA, and so the season continues.
Attached are also a few pics taken on one of our training rides and a quick pause at a coffee shop. As you know, cyclists and coffee are inseparable :-)

We are so proud to be sponsoring this amazing athlete, William James, and his great cycling team - Karan Beef / Heneways - who got a 3rd place on the podium in this year's 94.7 Cycle Challenge.
20 September 2016
I'm sure you will have seen some hype on social media again this weekend that we had another successful weekend of racing!
Our elites were racing at the Meals on Wheels cycle race on Sunday 18 September 2016 and showed some excellent form with Kai Pritzen taking 2nd place in the race. It was an exceptionally tough day out with the weather being very cold and extremely windy. The team worked well together and got Kai in an early break resulting in a podium place.
Next races coming up will included the:
- D2D race
- Satelite Classic

A quick update of my recent cycling events and results.
Powerade Lost City Cycle Classic - Presented by Bestmed (115km) (16/8/2014)
The licenced vets filled the starting line on a fairly chilly but very windy day at Sun City to kick off the 2014 edition of this race. Of course there were a few breaks here and there but with wind howling as it did we knew small breaks won't last very long. At 40km to go the pace started picking up quite rapidly and with 30km to go we formed a 18 man break away. We stayed away from the main bunch but did drop a cyclist or two in the final km's. At the sprint for the line I managed 14the place in the racing group. Not ideal but not too bad either.
Dome2Dome Cycling Race - 102km (7/9/2014)
The D2D was never part of my racing calendar however I was approached by Team Karan Beef to ride in their team. This race was part of their racing calendar so I had to oblige. The first part of the race was near perfect racing conditions, where the second half had us facing our good old friend… the wind. Some marshalling issues in the final few km's of the race caused an upset amongst the racers who were all racing for podium position. After the marshalling confusion came the finish line whereby I finished in 10th place. Not really a true reflection of the race as many racers lost their original positions with the lack of marshalling. But, all done and dusted and let's look ahead to the next races.
Rand Water Race for Victory - 110km (21/9/2014)
The good old classic race with the dreaded gravel road section J Besides the couple hundred meter dirt road stretch, this is a quality race that tests the entire peloton. Towards the final few km's there were a fair amount a scuffling around as it boiled down to a bunch sprint. Again racing for Team Karan Beef I was at least hoping to make a podium position as I was well positioned in the sprint. I finally crossed the line in 6th position with a mere 2 seconds dividing myself and the winner… close call
Springbok Plant Hire Cycle Challenge - 82km (24/9/2014)
Another race that wasn't in my calendar but was asked to join in by Team Karan Beef J From the gun it was an extremely fast paced race with all elites, juniors, vets licenced riders in one group. With extreme wind conditions we managed to form a breakaway group of around 15 riders and we stayed away. This was probably one of the toughest 80km's I've done given the windy conditions but still managed a 5th place at the end in this big group.

Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge
Continues promotion for Cellfood
Besides word of mouth and having A LOT of people phoning/asking me about Cellfood as they now know I'm an ambassador, I Tweet on Twitter fairly often together with messages on Facebook promoting Cellfood. It is through these channels that people are aware that I use the products and seek advice on Cellfood and the usage thereof. I have our cycling team and club (and of course my family) all making use of Cellfood products (mostly bought at Dis-chem Greenstone)
Once again I can't thank you enough for your continues sponsorship in my cycling (and my lifestyle)!!!
22 June 2014
On the 22 June I raced in the Country Wide Medals race hosted at Stonehaven on Vaal.
It's a relatively short race (60km) with only a few brave cyclists willing to bare the cold. I'm sure you must have seen the Tweets going out as well as my Facebook comment after the race as I won the race!
Stonehave on Vaal results are here:
Attached is the same photo that I placed on both the Twitter feed as well as the Facebook messages.
Thank you once again to Cellfood Oxygen for Life for keeping me on top of my game!!
Cape Argus Pick 'n Pay Momentum Cycle Tour 2014
I managed 2h:58m. Not what I had hoped for, but, considering the weather on the day, I suppose it wasn't too bad. It was said on the day by the commentators that this year's race was on average around 20 mins slower than the previous year because of the wind. At least I'm one of only 485 riders out of 35 000 that managed a sub 3hour race.
Thank you to Cellfood Oxygen for Life for their continued support within my cycling career. You guys are amazing!! I love my cycling!
Powerade Christmas Cycle Challenge 2013
Attached please find the results of my latest race. 3rd PLACE!!! There was literally inches between us. The race was held at Stonehaven on Vaal and was called the Powerade Christmas Cycle Challenge. This was a short race of 60km which stretched from Stonehaven out 30km and return the same route. Unfortunately there wasn’t any photographers at this race
