Induna Drifter #3, Hazyview

Returning to Hazyview for the Induna Drifter, was the second time for me at this event, and the first time I've been able to descend to Hazyview after staying up altitude for the previous week. With our big boss there, and his bigger boss from MTN, it was time to give them a show. And that we did by total domination. Melt was looking in awesome shape, only a week before his XC world champs in Italy. Dave and I simply followed and contributed to the fast tempo being set, leaving only J.Kritzinger able to hang on until we started the second loop with the big climbs. From there the three of us rode away and on the final downhill to the finish Dave backed off due to Olympic prep, with Melt going over the line first, and myself right behind him. So I'm three Drifters down, and second place in all of them! Enough to keep me as the leader of the series, however with the next one in Stellenbosch also doubling as the SA Marathon champs, I'll be extremely motivated to keep my SA title! So now back to altitude till Graskop Hillclimb champs next week, till then, hasta la pasta.
P.S, pics to follow soon.
