Orbit Tour de Worcester

After a good month racing on the mountain bike I lined up on African soil, or tar rather, for my first road race back in South Africa. Although I managed to get into a promising break that stayed away for a couple of km’s the day on the whole didn’t work out to plan. A rear wheel blow out 60km into the 105km race shattered my rim and spelt the end of the race for me. Luckily I managed to borrow a wheel to ride back to Stellenbosch on so at least I got in some decent training for the upcoming marathons.

 

The race was won from a move which went clear with Leanardo van Olsen(brothers Sport) taking the win with Theuns van der Bank( Cape Town Market) 2nd and Jos le Roux(RSA Web) rounding out the podium.
