Today Tim Hanley, Sipho Mthembu and Siphe Ncapayi all completed their 1st Joburg2c... lots of pain, joy, many lessons learned and new friendships made. Gutsy rides by all three who each had their individual challenges and goals.
Tim having to balance the demands of corporate leadership and time to train. Sipho struggled with hovering flu all week, but still managed a creditable 138 in a field of 508 teams.
Siphe who in spite of several mechanical setbacks finished 147 (rode about 180km and 3,000m single speed losing over 5 hrs to the field) Without the lost time he would have finished in the top 50... what could have been and what lessons learned.

Huge thank you to Tim Hanley and Jan Joubert (Rainmaker Solutions/ Buffalo Foundation) for their generous sponsorship of the Kwano team and for Tim making sure Sipho and Siphe had pro treatment throughout.

Great partners and super friends!!!

J2C UPDATE...STG 4 (91km/1070m)

Poor connectivity makes details pretty sketchy, but big story is Siphe’s “champions ride”... he had a major mechanical just 7km from the start, had to convert his bike to single speed. In spite of this gutting setback so early in the day, he persevered to finish the day and stay in the race.
Now it’s time to fix bike and recover for tomorrow...If adversity makes us stronger, look out stage 5!
Tim and Sipho Botha enjoyed the classic descent off the escarpment and awesome single track.
