Last week, Gawie Combrinck and teammate Nico Bell took on the Cape Pioneer Trek in South Africa. Here is Gawie's recount of the week:

"This past week have been racing at the Bridge Cape Pioneer trek. This was a 7 day international mountain bike stage race that covered 534km and 11 516m vertical climbing.

We had some bad luck the first few days with mechanicals but still managed to fight back to 2nd overall in the tour. We had two stage wins, two second places and two third place stage finishes.

The race had awesome media coverage with daily updates on international websites and a 15 min highlights package every night on Super Sport."

Here are some of the articles and links to the footage shown every night:

Gawie and Nico won the 4th and 5th stages of the Cape Pioneer Trek and finished  2nd place overall. Congratulations Gawie and Nico!!!!
