The Value Logistics Fast One 2018 was a Sunday of (literally speed ) racing. With the Midvaal Raceway (race venue) being only an hour away from Benoni, it was just short of a long drive. Furthermore, the weather was warm and pleasant and started out as a stress-free Sunday.
Proudly representing the club we pitched with 4 Cyloamers , although we had different start times , we all came with the same mind frame , focused and determined to finish the race , now if you part of Cyloam Cycling you’ll know not to challenge Donovan and Lukasz cause you will literally start something quite impossible to finish!
These guys were ready to take on the 92km with 1 bottle cage and 1 Fast bar .. while Denver and I ensured we stocked the gels and energy bars for the 50km 🙈!!!
The most thrilling finish however, goes to Lukasz Imiolo , coming into the stretch before the final corner, I had the opportunity of watching Lukasz whizz passed me, yup, you read right, the Rocket White Charou passed me at 2hrs 10min after riding 92km while I was striding along completing 50km , for those that can’t add , Lukasz rode 42km more than me in less time it took me to do 50km , I’d say we have potentially an SA champ brewing in our humble club 😜
Strong legs and determination took us all to the finish line, although we had an unfortunate incident when Lukasz got side swiped by another cyclist, nevertheless we all had an awesome day , beautiful weather , friendly people and a well planned out race , well done Fast One 2018, You’ll definitely see us next year , hopefully with a stronger Cyloam presence 👍🏻……..
