On the 31st of October Insect Science Team member Alan Gordon was at the Nissan Trailseeker waving the team name high as Keagan and CP decided to spend the weekend preparing for some events coming up.
On the start line the field was filled with some of South Africas top riders all hungry for a win. The pace was high at the start as other riders tried to breakup the field which made for tough racing. Alan formed part of a handful of riders all hunting to win the race, the tactical race split up with 15km to go when riders were forced to jump off of their bikes and maneuver through some tight spaces.
Alan managed to ride a consistent pace from then on and was able to finish in a great 6th position in a very competitive field.
Next Up is SA XCO Championships for Keagan on the 7th of November and then the team heads to Sabi for a 3 day stage race the following weekend.
