The 2010 Claas Tour de Krantz, brought to you by aQuelle, took place on Saturday the 7th of August 2010 in near perfect conditions. We had a record turn out of cyclists, over 800 altogether.  The day dawned cool and misty, but as the riders where setting off on their various races, the mist slowly lifted, to afford the cyclists crisp and clear views over the valley of a thousand hills. With the very able and efficient help of the ROAG girls, registration went off without a glitch and for the first time, the riders set off in batches. This delayed the start times slightly, but from report backs I have received from cyclists, was worth every minute as there were no congestion out on the course and everybody could enjoy the flowing down-hills and even the killer up-hills. Out on the course conditions were dry and dusty, but with the well-marked route, the friendly water-tables and  the good KZN winter-weather, a grand time was had by most. The 45km Classic was won by Brandon Stewart, with Andrew Hill in second place and Brendon Davids hot on his heels. In the Ladies race, Landy Puddu was in nearly 15minutes before Kirsty Scott, with Andrea De Boer following closely.  Back at the race village, the Harburg Fest was in full swing, with delicious German fare on sale. There was such a demand for this that we even sold out of some options before everyone had their fill and we apologize to those who had to go without! Please come back next year for more. Last, but not least, I would just like to thank Farmers Agricare who came on board, sponsoring the 10km Fun ride, as well as B-Max with the Primary Schools league. Our young, up-and-coming cyclists enjoyed a fast ride, with Ryan Way winning the under 12 boys category and Kayla-Jade Berry winning the girls category. A big thank you to all of you who contributed to making the 11th Tour de Krantz a happy, successful day.
