The weekend of 3 October we were at 7Weekspoort MTB Challenge! Well done to all the participants! Our own Assistant Brewmaster, Anja Van Zyl, also participated in her CBC kit with fellow riders Gemma Grobbelaar & Leona Howard.
Hope the cold one at the end made the recovery a little quicker!
First Ladies Team over the finish line at the Storms River Traverse! Well done Anja & Gemma!
Jennie Stenerhag raced her last race for 2014 this weekend. Almost time for 2015′s race program and prep!
“Now that 2014 racing year has come to an end, I look forward to 2015! Some changes are happening at the moment and I will get back with an update just before Christmas!” – Jennie Stenerhag
“We won the race in a new record time for mixed teams of 5 hours 28 minutes, 5 minutes faster than the Complete Cyclist.” – Jennie Stenerhag
“It was the first time they had this race in Paarl and a huge thank you and well done goes to the organizers for a really good event and a tough, hard and fun route!!” – Jennie Stenerhag
“It was a very exciting race, thanks Robyn and Cath for the competition! I dont think that it has ever been so close in a ladies stage race in South Africa, it is very healthy for ladies cycling when our races are exciting and it makes people want to follow us!” – Jennie Stenerhag
“What a journey it has been the last 7 days at the Bridge Cape Pioneer Trek, granted UCI status for the first time this year and attracted many top international riders!
I teamed up once again with Robyn De Groot, who I won Sani2C and PE2Plett with earlier this year, we ride very well together and without having to use many words we understand each other both on and off the bike! It is in difficult situations that you really see if you are a good team, we got tested a lot during this week, it started with great success and ended with some tough days. This is what happened…” – Jennie Stenerhag
Very proud of these ladies! Jennie Stenerhag & Robyn de Groot winning the first four stages and an overall 2nd place at the Bridge Cape Pioneer Trek this year! And walking away with R125 000 as the #SwartbergShowdown queens of 2014!
Race report by Jennie Stenerhag coming soon!
Congratulations Jennie on your podium finish at the Karoo2Coast!
“Now it will be a few weeks of training before the Pioneer!” – Jennie Stenerhag
