Hello to all of you, our valued clients & friends!
We are already into the 2nd month of 2019 and many of you are coming up to big goals and events that you’ve been training hard for. Others have also been pushing hard on those pedals, all for varying reasons, chasing personal goals!
While we love being invested in your successes on the road and trails, we also love it when our coaches excel at doing what they’re so good at!
Well done to all of our athletes that took part in the recent SA championships in Pretoria! It was a massive day out with great spectator value. We are really proud of how our athletes rode, in a once off setting in front of such a great cheering crowd. Huge congrats to Nic White and Trevor Davies on their stellar rides at the event. It was a tough-man’s course covering laps past the Union Buildings, and then finishing with two ascents of the infamous Tom Jenkins Drive! Nic came out tops with a win in the 45+ age cat., while Trevor Davies was JUST nudged out of a medal in the sprint finish for the 40+ age cat. Well done boys!

Now we look forward to the three biggies in the Cape ….The Tour de Boland and Cape Town Cycle Tour, as well as the Cape Epic. We wish all our athletes the VERY best of rides – we know how hard you’ve been working! Focus on the elements you can control to a point, let the rest take care of itself!
So much is put into prepping for events like these but sometimes life throws those curveballs and we find ourselves in situations where our training hasn’t gone to plan due to sickness, injury or even more pressing commitments - and we’ve had to reassess goals and the training process. Read this great article on knowing the balance between pushing through or taking a bit of a step back to re-evaluate (or just being plain lazy ):

Lesotho, we have an affinity to the country as it is a fantastic place to train!
We spent some time over new year in Lesotho with some of our clients and their families. This has paid dividends in terms of form as the OfficeGuru Racing team has had a stellar start to the year, with Travis Barrett winning the seconed stage and King of the Mountains competition at the Mpumalanga Tour, and Marc Pritzen becoming the u23 National Road champion! We would like to make some of these a regular occurance during the year, as well as plan to do another 'Lesotho Freeze' in June, so watch out for more info.
