Day 3

Day 3

Longest stage of the Race.
Day before the toughest stage. First view of the mountains

Let me dispel two rumours:
1) the Free State is not flat
2) it is not all downhill to the coast
I can vouch for both these facts.

Overnighting at the Sterkfontein Dam. A little nervous about the climbing that will be required tomorrow.

Day 4’s summary:
Ascent – 1600m
Descent – 2300m

For those who have access to Facebook, search for “Fairburn Capital Old Mutual Joberg2c”. There are pictures and video clips uploaded by the sponsors.

One thought on “Day 3

  1. Link works, looks fabulous, cant believe how green everything looking, can see been rainy summer, felt a twinge of homesick when saw the vegetation but glad i didn’t have to negotiate the floating bridge. Viva Seattle!! Soon will be half way. Vasbyt and happy more saddle days
