After the Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge we went towards the town Nelspruit to have some good mountainbike and road trainings. The Mankele Bike Park has some fantastic trails where we've had both suffer time and fun.
Today we had a rest day spent well with a game drive in the Kruger Park and finished this day with an easy sunset ride.

That was an experience @momentum947 today. Cruising through Johannesburg with the bunch was really special! Hard, but happy to finish solo.19 Retweets
Last thursday we arrived in South-Africa for the Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge. This is a mega cycle event in Johannesburg; one of the biggest ones in the world with 36.000 participants.
Besides the 'Challenge' there were races for different age groups, and professionals men & women.
I was looking forward to the race, but as I had my last road race in September, I was also somewhat nervous. The girls from South-Africa were of course really motivated to make a good result, so I knew it would be hard. During the race though, I felt good and ready for a good battle. SA champion Ashleigh Moolman Pasio made clear her aspirations in attacks and pacing up the hill, so the group came down to 7.
With 25 km. to go I attacked on a hill and the other girls hasitated for a while. When I saw that, I knew there was no other option than to start a time trial to the finish. Of course I was happy when I could build out my lead and finish solo.
Thanks to Momentum for this great experience the last days at this Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge!

Beautiful picture of exertion and emotion.
After a hard battle I believe team mate Sabrina Stultiens is happy with her European u23 cyclocross title, but look at the cheer from her brother in the crowd (left)... Wow!
