RTC 2018 NEWS FEED

The Race is on

With the final batch departing Rhodes yesterday, riders were strung out along the full length of the Race to Cradock route. As the racers hit the trail, the earlier batches were arriving in Cradock. The weather finally played along with clear skies, sunshine and a gentle breeze helping to dry out the wet roads leading out of Rhodes.

Bruce Hughes and Jacques Tattersall pushed the early pace with Mike Woolnough not far behind. By early afternoon, the whole of Batch 7 had signed out of Slaapkranz support station. Tim James started up the Bontehoek portage before turning around and going to ground at a nearby farm - he wasn't feeling well and opted to rest for the night and continue the next day. Gavin Horton and Janine and Mark Stewart reached Moordenaarspoort, with Gavin pushing on to Kranskop to sleep there. Ahead of them, the duo of Bruce and Jacques made it to Brosterlea before opting to sleep there. While they slept, Mike slipped past into the lead. After a two hour sleep, the duo got going again and eventually managed to haul Mike in just before Romansfontein.
