Yes, I am currently studying a BBA at IMM. This is a business marketing degree.
I only cycle and study…so living the fine life!
On the road bike, I love riding Franshoek pass and then on the mountain bike I love the Garden Route Trail Park close to where my parents stay in Knysna.
I always get all my stuff organised in such a way to be as time efficient the morning of the race as I am a big fan of sleep, so to maximise that means streamlining my routine.
Lots of chicken, avocado, potatoes. Generally, I eat whatever is put in front of me except fast food. And I stay away as much as possible from processed foods and wheat.
Winning SA champs as a Junior.
I treat rides exactly how they are planned. If they are meant to be at pace or a very slow recovery ride, then that is exactly what I do. And then when it comes to intervals I give it my everything. Treat training like you are at a stage race, everyone comes away from stage racing very strong so imagine if you could make your training that good all the time!

It’s not about winning, it’s about the struggle. As long as you have given your best in training and in the race then you will win in your own mind.
