Karwats Results

On Saturday Rod and I rode the Karwats MTB Feast in Hermanus and had a great time.

As we were driving towards the venue the rain was lashing down, but it had stopped by the time the race started and it turned into a really nice day.

The ride was great, quite a bit faster than most 50k races and it was all laid out really well. In fact the whole organisation was very good and many of the other MTB races on the calender could learn a lot from these guys! One aspect that we both really appreciated was the fact that there was a very short gospel message followed by a prayer before the start and everyone was respectful of this.

Once again Rod beat me by a few minutes, but he's an Ironman so he really should! Rod came in 20th in a time of 2:52.32 and I was 23rd, 6 minutes behind him in 2:58 which put us both in the top half of the field of 54 finishers (61 riders started the race), see full results below.

Below is the profile of the course. The point where the red and blue separate is the point at which the 50k route went its own way but the two routes joined up again for the last few kliometres. Rod's Garmin recorded the total ascent for the ride at 1267m.

I'm a very happy camper as I've just upgraded from the Polar CS300 to the Polar S725X HRM and so far I'm delighted with it!!
