Berg and Bush 3 day Descent

Shayamanzi MD Roger Blevin took part in the Berg & Bush 3 day descent from 9 to 11 October, starting at the border post on the top of the Drakensberg Mountain, and heading towards Em’seni Camp along on the banks of the Tugela River.

The race winds down some seriously riveting single track to Winterton.

This is what Roger had to say;

“My team mate is Wayne Atherstone, has been doing cadence training so I sweated to keep up on the hills, which never seemed to end!!

We had some nice warm weather and came 129th out of 560 teams, total time of 12h44 for 210km.

I must admit it was testing ….., and lucky I didn’t fall, just broke a back wheel spoke on day two, so no chiropractor appointments, but luckily the physios were there to fix our aches and pains!”

Thanks to Berg & Bush for a 5 star event. Shayamanzi sponsored three lucky draw prizes for two night cruises on board Shayamanzi Houseboat.

Well done Roger & Wayne! Thanks for taking Shayamanzi out there.
