Ek het dit verlede jaar op my gravel bike gedoen, maar die sand het my gekou. Ek sal maar vanjaar my mtb vat.

Don't want to start a new thread after the previous one was removed (due to mistaken identity)

 

but RIP Naas Vermaak.

 

Only met him once briefly but from the reaction in my cycling circles he clearly was a gentleman that was very much loved & respected. His passing leaves a big gap in the Southern Cape cycling community. I hope this event & the Napier Patatfees will continue in his memory.
