GOC Racing in South Africa


Recommended Posts

Here is some footage of the GOC racing in South Africa. It is the biggest series in South Africa. This was my 1st GOC race and I started in last place in row 84. The second video shows my crash at the race that has ended my 2014 and most of 2015 racing seasons. Any comments on what this type of racing compares to in your countries.

Wot injuries, have u got to put u out for sa year

I tore my ACL and LCL and possibly damaged my cartilage. It will be my 6th knee operation. I will operate in December and I will not ride before 6 months and maybe at 9 months I will compete in a race. Unfortunately I will miss almost all the 2015 races

I think you should spend more time on more technical terrain if it is available.  It will help you develop your skill. Hope you heal up well.

 

I am working on the technical side as it is my weak point. I am good and use to wide fast open terrain which isn't that rocky. I had just recovered from pneumonia before that race so my fitness was bad and I should have been standing while riding. I will be back with a bang ready to challenge for victory at my regional series and keeping up with the national guys
