Gravel Travel Race Report

15 May 2017

Report by Sipho Madolo: Sport programme manager

With this being the first race of 2017 for most of our kids there was a lot of excitement in the lead up to this event. We had 7 riders who made the qualification to go to the race and this small number made everything a lot more manageable from a logistics point of view especially keeping track of every one before and after the race.

It was a very successful day for the kids with strong riding and good improvement shown by most of them which was incredible. The race took place at Doolhof Wine Estate just outside Wellington with a choice of 50km or 25km.

 We had 3 boys doing the 50km and 3 boys and 1 girl doing the 25km course. All our riders had a great time and all rode really well with a special mention for Star (Someleze) who finished 14th overall and the 1st junior men in 50km race (in a very competitive field) and Aero (Bukho) finishing overall 6th on the 25km course.
