Moenie worry nie, daar gaan baie mense wees wat suffer saam met jou. Na 'n tyd begin jy maar gesels met die ou langs ou want julle is in dieselfde bootjie.

As jy vinnig is dan is dit 6H->7H, en die res van ons is +7H->Sweeper trokkie. Ek dink vir 2011 is die silver medalje afsny op 6H30 wat probably net die eerste 25 ouens gaan wees uit probably 700.

This will be my first Attakwas, I have no idea what time to expect, I am rather nervous for the event, everyone makes it out to be a horror.

Relax, take it easy, drink lots of fluid and eat something at every waterpoint, stick a few sandwiches in your pockets and on to the next one.

If 700+ guys enter for it then it must tell you something: Either we have more loonies in the Marathon class than any other OR that it's a challenge that everyone WANTS to experience.

Oh, and if you are not too tired and can still look around, the scenery is out of this world.

Anyone thinking of entering the Attakwas but hasn't done so yet? I have an entry I have to let go and would like to recoup my entry fee. Paid R395. Organizers will allow a substitution.

OK, I am starting to nip for this one. fitness is OK but my 10hr fitness is questionable....weather is so *** in Cape Town that I cannot do long outdoor rides without been blown away!

I think you are going to be alone on a single speed at this race!. You WILL push many hills, unless you go for a 22/32 ratio. I am all for the single speed thing, but don't think this is the race to attempt with a SS.

Good luck!
