THERE was certainly a buzz around the Toti cycling crew over the weekend when the mountain bikers rode at Renishaw on Saturday morning. There were two groups that left Scottburgh beach and headed straight into the track.

Fattis and Monis had 14 people in their group and the slipstreamers had 10 to keep track of. Meanwhile the making-dust group left Illovo grass patch and did the big trek along the Umnini Dam road past Sappi to Renishaw. They did the Renishaw track and struggled home on the Umgababa road against the beastly easterly.

This was an 80km training ride in preparation for the upcoming Hill2hill. The mountain bikers took advantage of the good weather on Saturday’s ride, as they were going to be marshalling the Toti 69er the next day. This was organised so that the club’s Roadies could for once, be free to ride their home race.

The Hypersure Toti 69er kicked off on a beautiful sunrise at 6.30am on Sunday. There were various distances for the competitors - 20kms, 69kms and 94kms.

First place in the men’s 94km was Ryan Gibbon, U23, in 2:16:23 and second Theuns van der Bank, Vet 30-39, in 2:16:29. The first place in the ladies 94km was Heidi Dalton, Elite, in 2:26:29 and second Isabel Moolman, Vet 40-49, in 2:49:14.

First place in the men’s 69km was Ewan Cochrane, Vet 40-49, in 2:03:28 and second Dean Barry, Vet 40-49, in 2:06:57.

The first ladies over the line on a tandem were Suna Ferreria and Lisette­ Keightly in 2:08:32. The next lady was Lauren Kendrick, Vet 30-39, in 2:41:21 and second Nicola Howard, Vet 40-49, in 2:42:40.

Thank you to the main sponsor Hypersure for its support. The second main sponsors are Cyclesphere, Pickfords and Pick n Pay. - Supplied
