Surreal. strange, wacky, captivating - the South African view...

Grant Usher from South Africa was in
Rotorua for SSWC10 and wrote a great
article for the February 2011 issue of
Ride magazine


It's a great snapshot of the whole week.
Grant and his mate, Jerrard weren't just here to race. They'd also thrown their hats in the ring to compete for SSWC11. They made the cut on Thursday night at Agroventures, when Australia was eliminated. 
Quiz night on Friday saw Italy and Canada binned, as well.

On Saturday, after the big race was run, it was a show-down - Ireland vs South African - in horizontal bungee for all the gold!
The SA team game hair-splittingly close but in the end it was Ireland who won.

We get the feeling Grant and Jerrard will be supping Guinness in August and plotting how to get SSWC12 to Africa!

Good luck to them. Great guys and real singlespeeders.
