Anyone who has listened to cricket or cycling broadcasts in South Africa will recognise the unmistakable voice of Gerald de Kock.
Before transitioning to cycling, Gerald established his media career in cricket broadcasting and has always brought viewers an intimate knowledge of the sport. He has managed to do this by speaking from experience gained through active participation.
"My wife got me into mountain biking in the late 1990s when she moved up from Stellenbosch. I remember our first race, a fixture of the Highveld winter programme, the Walkerville Classic, and fixing a puncture in the cold fondly," recalls Gerald.
