  • No rest in Rwanda.
.
The @teamsouthafrica boys kicked their legs up whilst myself and @hein_badenhorst91 took to the streets post managers meeting.
.
Stumbling into the insanely talented @alexander_bell_nshimiyimana for some custom bombers made getting lost in the ally’s of the #Kimironko market cooler then cool.
.
Rwanda, I love you like the sister I never had.
  • Full-blown solo efforts today.
.
Day two at the UCI African Continental Champs was time trial day.
.

.
All-in-all, two solid results from two solid riders.
.
Kudos on a good day out @eddievanheerden & @gustavbasson.

.
Here’s to living life with an open mind and seazing every opportunity it presents.

See you in the morning Rwanda!

  • Plans change. Priorities too.
.
Sometimes riding just for the sake of seeing something new is kinda cool too.

I’m glad I did.

Suikerbos, you rock.
