I want to begin by saying that the Cape Pioneer Trek 7 day Stage Race was a big moment for me. To have met the pro riders of the sport was a very big experience for me. The first day of the race was not so hard for me.
It was a very short prologue, but I enjoyed it so much that I did not want to come back home. When I did my first proper stage I felt that I’m not going to make it to the end but thanks to my partner Max Menzies. He is a wonderful man. He kept on reminding me to never give up. He is not just my partner but he is also like a father to me and to all the other boys.
TWe as Mc Gregor Young Warriors are very grateful to have met such a nice person like him. I just want to thank Mr Max for all his support and kindness to us. I also want to thank him for making it possible for me to do the race. I also want to thank the Cape Pioneer team and Momentum Health for the wonderful week I had at their event. I hope I will get a chance to do it again. Thank you from all us in McGregor!
