Seriously sleep-deprived after this year’s #TransBaviaans #1 … All I can say at this stage is what an incredible event! I will expound in more detail about the various factors which makes this 230km / 24hr / 3550m ascent ride such an incredibly gruelling undertaking. Right now, I need my bed.
Huge kudos to Zane Schmahl, Carmen Schmahl, Wikus Van der Walt, Marelize Rhodes, William Anstey Rhodes, Elmarie Vd Walt, Paul Valstar and the whole EcoBound Mountain Events team … this event is just getting better and better every year.
Most of the images were taken on the new PENTAX SOUTH AFRICA K-1, which performs off the scale. Despite a lack of sun and some seriously overcast skies, it never failed to amaze me, even when shooting at 25600 ISO at night. Bulletproof! Now I’m just waiting to get a clear night to properly test that #AstroTracer technology.
Thanks Brett Skolmen – that is one seriously kickass camera!
