Kobus Reynecke and Rudolf Angus (parents)
Rudolf Angus and Kobus Reynecke took part as a W2W team in 2015. The first two days were tough with great cycling weather and lots of fun experiences on the single track in Lourensford.
The third and final day (starting in Grabouw, Oak Valley and ending in Hermanus) was full of challenges and obstacles due to strong winds, heavy rain and a very slippery single track past Botriver water point.
‘Rudolf and myself, on separate occasions, had a serious crash, got back up, recovered a bit and managed to complete the final day both with broken ribs. What a memory! But also a great accomplishment and finishing medals well-deserved,’ says Kobus.
‘Winning the entry to the 2022 W2W for us as a team means a lot and it is another opportunity to take part in this spectacular and well-organised event with an awesome atmosphere,’ adds Rudolf.
As friends and team participants, they are now back on track to ride on some of the best and most scenic single track South Africa has to offer. Their main takeaway lesson from W2W and mountain biking in general is to participate and push on through the hard times. Do your best and persevere until the finish line.
