I just don’t understand these event organisers! The final leg of the 2008 Mazda MTN National Mountain Bike Series will take place in Hilton, KwaZulu-Natal on 9 November – hence, the problem: KwaZulu-Natal on the 9th of November!
Seriously, I know that KZN is considered the home of MTB in South Africa, but some of us have a thing called a J-O-B, which prohibits us from going away. It’s even exceptionally harder now getting leave around this time of the year, because the Christmas holidays are just around the corner.
Unfortunately, not all of us are pro-cyclists that can just jump in a car or plane and go to whichever event we want. I really think this is so unfair
I can’t believe I’m going to be missing one of the country’s most important cycling events. I can only dream of competing in the 78 km full marathon event or the 37km Ferdevco National Half-Marathon race.
I think I’m going to go drink a cup of coffee and hope it burns my mouth, so that I can go home and cry…
