Toti cyclists take on JHB road race

2015-11-18 06:00

NUMEROUS Toti cyclists took on the daunting Momentum 94.7 road race in Johannesburg on Sunday, 15 November.

From all accounts it was very hot and windy, which did not make an easy Sunday ride, but for those who finished, well done.
There was one not so happy Toti cyclist, Eleonore Tesnaar, who came crashing down at 35km/h, which battered and bruised her, but luckily there were no broken bones.

The upside to this is with Tesnaar­ covered in so much Mercurochrome, everyone stood aside at the airport on her way home so that she did not have to wait in any queues. Get well soon.

With a few flats along the way, Rienie Beneke was not able to do the time she was aiming for, but there is always next year. Well done to everyone who braved the elements and the altitude.

Times for the Toti cyclists:
Brennan Anderson – 2:29:39
Wihelm Tesnaar – 2:55:33
Cindy Theunissen – 2:56:40
Tommy Maritz – 3:21:32
Rienie Beneke – 3:37:56
Hannes Beneke – 3:45:25
Hennie Nell – 5:23:13
Carol Raasch – 5:45:41.

The rest of the Toti Roadies did some nice training rides on the weekend with rides to Scottburgh on Saturday and a ride to Suncoast Casino and back on Sunday.

The Toti mountain bikers enjoyed­ rides at Rocky Bay and to the back of Illovo on the weekend as there were no races for them.
