The Contermanskloof track in Durbanville came alive with action on Sunday 19 May when it hosted the WP DH #3 and the SA DH #3 events simultaneously. The track was littered with spectators from the rock garden to the finish. The course was really dusty and really loose with a very strong head-wind.
Well, the ‘Zevenwacht and Gravity Downhill – The Perfect Combination’ race was exactly that. Great space, delicious food and wine, perfection planning, autumn sunshine (with good bit of the old Cape Doctor wind), dust and of course, plenty of amped riders on bikes…..and what an exciting finish the riders provided at our second event of the season.
Race day was a peach with everything running according to a strict time-plan. Thank you Grev and Sharon. Riders briefing at 8:30am was very informative, especially as we had many new, younger riders. Practice gave everyone at least two runs to familiarise themselves with the track.
