Forest to falls, Drifter #2, Graskop

Well the race couldn't have gone better for the MTN team with all of us in the first four, taking 1st, 2nd and 4th. However it was DG who rode superbly to ride across to me after i attacked a small group, the two of us then rode like a day in the Epic, putting nearly 6min into 3rd place, Brandon Stewart, who only just slipped in ahead of Melt for 4th. So Dave took his maiden Drifter win and i paid back my debt of shreddin his pocket ! But kudo's to him for winning the race in real mtb conditions, with lots of mud and slippery sections. Carla Rowly, our lady component rode very well to win her maiden Drifter too. Congrats to the whole team, and thanks VW for a great weekend away. Till later, hasta la pasta.

Well, what a weekend. It was an honour to meet the MTN/Energade team and bore them with our questions. You guys are true professionals. Congratulations on your performance and all the best for the rest of the year. Pity we couldn't see the finish as we were sweating it out in the forest. Jacques

I can only echo the sentiments expressed by Jacques. You made a novice feel confident (and overweight) It was an absolute pleasure to have the privilige of the undivided attention of consumate proffesionals. Well done. I have high hopes for the future of the sport with you as ambassadors. Keep up the great work and I will place my bottom dollar on you winning the Epic in 09.
