TALLE atlete, selfs een in ’n groen tutu, asook kaalvoet kleingoed en fietsryers het Sondag een van die geel Metrorail-treine die stryd aangesê.

Dié trein, wat verlede jaar eerste die eindstreep gehaal het, is vanjaar in die Nelson Mandelabaai Treinwedloop deur die span van ses van die Gamble Apteek in Uitenhage met 13 minute geklop.

“As dit nie vir die klomp stilhouplekke op pad was nie, het hy dalk gewen,” het Michael Zoetmulder, wedren-direkteur, namens die geel gevaarte gesê. “Maar ek dink die trein het eintlik die spoed van die fietse onderskat.”

Die afloswedloop wat deur die metro se toerismeraad aangebied word, is oor 38 km tussen die Baai en Uitenhage beslis.

Deelnemers kon ook vanjaar vir die eerste keer een been van die wedloop op ’n fiets aflê.

“Dit was ’n hengse sukses,” het Zoetmulder vertel.

“Die weer was mooi, die deelnemers was opgewonde en die ondersteuning van die publiek was fantasties. Ek dink die fietse is ’n lekker nuwigheid wat ons beslis volgende jaar weer sal toelaat.”
