Trans Baviaans 'Race' Report 2021
by Firoz Limalia
When Marius, Frans and I finished that horrendous 2019 Repeat Trans Baviaans event, we vowed to come back and do it proper in the Race version. We had severe headwinds and some jelly legs which meant we finished that early Sunday morning.
Entries opened for 2020 and we promptly entered as a 4 man team, and even jumped at the opportunity of staying in a tent the night before as opposed to the Royal hotel which closed its bar and music at 2am in 2019.
Of course, the event was postponed to January 2021 and then middle August 2021 for Covid. Low and behold, 1 more postponement in July to 28th August 2021. To handle curfew, the event a mandatory cutoffs to avoid issues with curfew.
