With only the day before the start of the Bridge Cape Pioneer Trek I’m about to see how all the hard work I’ve been doing is about to pay off. This being my very 1st 7 day stage race I’m excited and very nervous at the same time.  Just thinking of doing this race it puts I huge smile on my face.

I really cannot begin to say thank you enough to everyone that has bought me to this point. My wife Ronel Vos wow thank you for all you sacrificed for me and giving me the time to go training, looking after the kids while I sweat on the bike, listening to all my ramblings about me cycling. To my Mom Lisbe Vos and my mother in law Erica Strydom thank you for also assisting and babysitting giving me time to prepare. To my kids Nelmari & Marnel Vos as little as you are you won’t believe the energy you give me every time I got home from a long tuff ride or race all dirty, sweaty and sometimes spent the hugs and kisses and the 100 questions on “het jy gewen pappa?”means the world one day you’ll understand Thank you.
