Jacques Herselman tem Baviaans

2015-08-20 06:00

Jacques Herselman (foto) van Dirk Ellis Motors en Kevin Taljaard van East Coast Cycles weet wat dit verg om in die gebergtes ’n fiets se speke te laat sing. Die twee spanmaats het die afgelope naweek aan die 230km lange Trans-Baviaans-bergfietswedren deelgeneem en die moordende roete in ’n tyd van elf ure en 12 minute voltooi. Hulle was die 66ste span om oor die eindstreep te ry. Volgens Herselman het hy die afgelope drie jaar ’n passie vir ’n aktiewe en gesonde leefstyl ontwikkel, en bergfietsry vorm ’n groot deel daarvan. “Dié wedren het nie net oor persoonlike oorwinning gegaan nie, maar om geld vir ’n plaaslike meisie in te samel. Ons het daarin geslaag om R18 000 in te samel,” sê Herselman. Herselman het die wedren reeds twee keer vantevore aangepak. Volgende op sy wedrenlys is die TransElands Extreme in Okober en die Hell and Back Extreme in November - sy hoogtepunt vir die jaar. Vir nog foto’s, sien bladsy 12
