Starting in the last batch with all the racers, Janine rode a smart race, sticking to her plan and riding at her own pace. Her first day ended at Kranskop, where she slept for a few hours and then continued in the early hours of the second day. Not scared to take on tricky portages on her own, she trusted her navigation skills and route knowledge. The second day ended in Hofmeyr and from there she rode all the way to the finish in a single push. Conditions on the last stretch deteriorated as the day progressed and she ended up riding the last few hours in heavy rain. But nothing could stop her determined effort and she posted a new women’s record in a time of 2days 13hours 20min. Well done Janine.
