Well, what an awesome event, even if we say so ourselves. The atmosphere was electric and you the competitors were awesome! We thoroughly enjoyed organising the event, especially with such an organized Team from Umngazi.

Well done to all who took part. The routes were not quite as easy as planned, and we will be making some small adjustments to them for the 2012 race. We will be opening up entries soon to the 2011 riders first and then to the public.

Well done once again and we look forward to seeing you in 2012.

Race Feedback

Hi Lauren

A quick email to thank you, Damien and your team for a great event.

The trails were fantastic (although possibly a little too technical for first timers), but the overall concept was what made the event so special. I have done quite a few multi-stage races incl Epic, Imana, Sabie Experience, 3x Sani2C and 5x Berg & Bush, and none have had the atmosphere or camaraderie that the Pondo Pedal had. Of course the weather played its part and the setting and team of Umngazi were beyond compare.

Well done to you all and thanks again.

See you next year.

Dear Lauren and Damian

A very big thank you to the both of you for organising and hosting probably the best event I have been part of!

Umngazi was a fantastic location and great riding even though challenging at times! It was fantastic from start to finish and loved the everything about it especially crowd it attracted and the social side of the whole week!

I will definitely be back

Dear Lauren, Damian, Neil and the rest of your team

Thanks so much for a wonderful few days. Being able to ride together is a rare treat and to be able to do so in such beautiful surroundings was really special. Coming home to Umngazi every day and being able to relax and spend quality time together really put the cherry on the cake. A big thank you to all of you.
