We’re really proud of one of our younger members of TeamRSAWEB, Chris Jooste, who rode this weekend at the Penny Pinchers GOK cycle tour. Chris won the junior race by over 5 minutes (what an amazing result) and also competed with other top elite level professionals in the field. Expect great things from this guy! Read Chris’s race report below.
This past weekend was the GOK cycle tour in Oudtshoorn, which is basically in my back-yard so I was hoping for a really good performance! I knew there would be guys competing from Cape Town who really wanted the prize money so I knew I’d have to put everything into it.
As soon as the gun went off the racing was really intense, there were guys attacking left, right and centre and the racing was hard and stretching out the group, only a few k’s into the race Shaun Ward and David Garret broke free from the rest of the group and were hammering on the front, I knew it was going to be a challenge to catch up with those guys, but I put my head down and really went for it, and made a good gap between myself and some of the other riders. I couldn’t keep this up for long though, as I was racing with junior gears. I ended the race coming 12th which I was pleased with, given the experience of the other guys within the field, I also won the juniors by more than 5 minutes!
