Nov '04 : The Du Toit Cycles Team in the 2004 DC

The Du Toit Cycles Cycling Team 2004 Double Century

The Du Toit Cycles Cycling Team notched up an impressive overall tenth place out of 84 teams in the gruelling “Double Century” 202km team race on 29 November 2004. The first six riders of the twelve man team took 06:49:06 to cross the finishing line at an average speed of 29,87kph.

This is a marked improvement over last year when the Du Toit team came 23rd out of 75 teams in 07:35:41. The race was hotly contested with only seconds separating some of the top ten teams.

Except for Francois, the team has very little ultra racing experience making their ride even more impressive. The route and conditions were tough with riders having to battle with other teams, wind and high temperatures. There were 935 riders in 84 teams at the start. Only 728 finished before the 12 hour cut-off time. The route from Ceres over the Swaarmoed and Theronsberg mountain passes to Touwsriver and back had more
than 80km of passes or hills translating into a total ascent of 2500
metres.
