2013 MTB Challenge is Done and Dusted. I found the heat absolutely sweltering especially in the last 10km. I can honestly say that the last 10km broke me. 30-40 Minute back ups,extreme heat and I dunno somehow I just lost focus in the heat.

The first 20km was superb. We found rythym and were pushing.

We did this years MTB Challenge with the Same crew as last year. Myslef,Ahmed Ismail and his elder Son and a first tiem for Zaheer Kara,

The Ismails pushed on as they had an earlier start time

Myself and Zaheer rode the full way and it was fantastic. Always nice to have someone with you. What was equally sublime was no techical difficulties like last year and No Punctures. Last year we were an hour off the road trying to enforce repairs.

Later the Ismails said they had a sublime race. We seen them on the 20km Mark but approaching the Bottleneck we lost them.

The Hills in the heat were also tough for me as the race wore on
