This past weekend saw the running of the second round of the KZN Provincial series, which incorporated the Greg Minnaar Cycles Downhill series. It was a beautiful sunny day up at Cascades and a great opportunity to show off our new support from Monster Energy.
It is so good and so encouraging to be a part of this team. We have received huge support from our sponsors and to get Monster Energy on board, has just taken it to the next level. Setting up the pits and the buzz in the morning, was out of this world. Alasdair was visibly excited and had his goals set for the day: Have lots of fun i=on the bike and get his head ready for a home track National Cup race this weekend.
Hear is what he had to say about the day: “On Saturday we had a race on a short track at cascades I just wanted to have some fun with my mates. The track was running super-fast and we had some big hip jumps to do a little bit of showing off to the crowd.
After practice it had been so dry the track got very blown out. It was fast and loose!
In my race run I was having a awesome run had my foot out getting little sideways into a loose corner and there was no berm to catch my front wheel so I washed out. I ended up loosing a few second. I ended up placing 6th over all
Was a super day with the riders. I’m excited for the national this weekend where it’s not time to play games its time to focus on a good result.
And I would like to say a big shout out to all the people that have helped me and all the sponsors you guys are truly amazing
Well there you have it. The National Cup race this coming week end is going to be a big race for us. There are valuable points up for grabs and I think it’s about time for the elusive podium. See you there.
