Van Gaalen’s 24 Hour MTB Race – 2016
The first stage of our ER Consulting Triple Challenge was the 24 hour mountainbike race in the Magaliesburg.
This was Bianca’s and my second attempt at 24 houring. Last year, at the same event, Bianca completed 19 laps and 250 km for third lady home. I shuffled round for 17 laps and 224 km for 11th place in the solo men’s field.
Just looking at the above statement one can see that new targets immediately standout for this year. Bianca decides a win is possible with the right bike ( she rode single speed in 2015 ) and more training. I just hate 11th place.
