Because Not All Heroes Wear Capes

If you found yourself in a bit of a struggle up a steep hill or even battling to fix a puncture, chances are you, you’ve met them. They’re the Trek Troopers, also known as the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge’s Super Troopers – a special group of experienced riders responsible for getting you across the finish line!

I stayed right to the end and, it’s actually quite emotional. You realise that these people put in every little ounce of energy and emotion into crossing that finish line.

I was quite emotional when I saw these people coming across and, everyone’s there and cheering them on. It’s like, wow what is this – that you don’t get at the front, that human element… you actually see who we are as South Africans in the negative times that we have and, all this pessimism.
