Gavin arrived in Cradock in perfect, sunny weather. His decision to stop at Rockdale yesterday when the heavy rain started, proving to be a wise one. He started with Batch 5 in Rhodes and had an eventful ride, which included a night sleeping out on the Elandsberg portage. Overall he was quicker than last year too, so he is really pleased with his efforts. He finished in 4d 4h 45min.
