Trans Baviaans #1 2016

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 SchmahlCarmen SchmahlWikus Van der WaltMarelize RhodesWilliam Anstey RhodesElmarie Vd WaltPaul 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!
