Boxlee Golovane Xplore

28 January 2015

Just over 500 riders braved the wet weather at Holla Trails on Sunday to take part in the Boxlee XPlore mountain bike team race and were rewarded with some perfect training conditions for the Sani 2 C.
 
After overnight rain soaked the course, many riders were preparing for the worst conditions possible, and after negotiating the first muddy climb many were expecting a tough 85km or 50km day in the saddle. But the rain stayed away and most of the course drained well enough to make the race a good test of mountain biking, with the cloud cover ensuring temperatures were never unbearable.
 
The team that passed the test with flying colours was the three-man outfit of Sean Merredew, Rourke Croeser and Tyronne White who were comprehensive winners of the 85km race in a time of three hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds.
 
Shaun Peschl rode as an unofficial single rider entrant and was next across the line, with the team of Nick Porteous and Jeremy Thomson claiming second position on the official results with a time of 4:03:19, just six seconds ahead of Pietermaritzburg Cycle Lab's  Tyron Bird and Bradley Stroberg.
 
The top women were Brenda Potts and Shawna Thunder, with Zululand Cycles' Dirk Barnard and Danielle Dalton claiming the mixed prize, while Ivor Jones and Marc Doffay were the top veterans in the long event.
 
In the shorter 50km race Wayne Bursey and Lee Penderis were winners with Savannah Schuit and Dagmar Muhlbauer winning the women's category.
