I've already gotten a taste of South Africa. It's beautiful and can be unforgiving. Last time I came with my MTB for an adventure, this time I will come with the TT for a race. Last time I came with my good mate @bhoffmanracing, this time he already helped me with some good advice. Happy to start my season at @imsouthafrica.
