Garmin Social Ride before Cape Epic

Who ever thouth South Africans are fun…was right. What started off as ‚the team who constantly drafted our wheels at the PE-Plett 4 stage MTB race‘ (there might be some alternative facts build in ;-)) quickly turned into a new built friendship with Team Garmin SA. Sure it took Yolandi and Melt a dear while to trust us Garmin Europe boy cause even at Melt’s experienced age of 40 years, Stefan and I were the first funny Germans the two have ever met and would you trust a funny German if you were convinced for 40 years that they don’t exist. Didn’t think so.

After they beat us to the finish line at PE-Plett we decided to watch them closely on our ‚home turf‘ in Stellenbosch to turn the tables and #beatyesterday at Cape Epic starting this Sunday.

Enjoy our little video from a fun social ride „Team Garmin SA meeting Team VANtastic / Garmin Europe“ and if you don’t care for us, just enjoy the stunning scenery of the trails around Stellenbosch!

Ride Across Germany

It’s  a cold October morning and I feel like I finally recovered from a long commentating season on the road when the ‚adventure‘ gene kicks in. A 7 day cycling road trip from Copenhagen, Denmark to Basel, Switzerland across the Eastern route of my home country Germany. A beautiful but these days rather secluded area with spectacular views and beautiful, quiet roads for long days in the saddle. Clothes are packed, the bike is ready, the tent folded up and off I go. Follow the road trip below!
