Very unexpected 2nd place for me today. The Demacon and @cycle_nation ladies made sure that the race was tactical and very aggressive from the beginning to the end. I wasn't able to attack myself and just tried to cover the moves but I am over the moon with the result. Well done to all the ladies out there today esp @carlavdm for the win and @heidz_dalton for 3rd. Best was having my family there to support would not have been able to do it without them. #babawasnotimpressed
First time riding with the elite ladies in over 2years. I have no doubt that it is going to be a huge shock the system but you have to start somewhere right?! #freeeeeeezing#prettybike#racer

15km run with hubby this morning. It's been a fresh few days here in PTA so eating and drinking has been much higher on my priority list than training. At least im feeling happy and healthy
We don't see each other often and we don't talk everyday but when we are together we pick up exactly where we left off.

Sometimes you just need to stop and take in the simple beauty of nature. Love the touch of pink amidst all the brown. Happy to be healthy and able to ride a bicycle 🏼

This little guy is stubborn as hell but man he knows how to be cute. I love seeing his personality coming through more everyday. Got his looks from his daddy #momandson
Did something different today... an off-road duathlon it was my first one but definitely not the last. It was much tougher than expected but so good to feel the burn again this weekend. Best part was having my family there. Thanks cow house for hosting a great event. #10/30/3 #whatsworthit#fittfamily
I forgot how fast people ride their bikes in Gauteng... I was on the limit most of the ride and then overhead "such a nice slow ride today" are you kidding me?! #therudetruth#whatsworthit
Training with someone who has high motivation and a passion for sports makes being out there easy. 4 hours on our @specializedza road bikes on a beautiful day. Thanks @webbmikayla

We have had a rough few nights of very little sleep and I had to walk away from my screaming baby a few times just to calm myself down and take some deep breaths. I honestly sometimes feel like I am going to burst and actually scare myself. I have so much respect for single parents- pretty sure they must have super powers. Luckily all can be forgotten with cuddles- and a run 🤗🏼🏽♀️
10km run with the baba, 2hr mtb ride and some core. Body is not used to training everyday anymore so i'm training at a very low intensity so that I can hopefully get a few few consistent weeks of training in. #thismommywantshermojoback#whatsworthit
Last afternoon together as a family of 3 for a while so we had to make it a memorable one. Perfect weekend in the Western Cape. #goodbyessuck
Such a beautiful day to be on the bike. Road riding is still my favorite esp with my @specializedza Tarmac. Had great fun @tourdefranschoek. Had some Epic flashbacks riding up the pass.... except then i was a whole lot fitter. 🏼♀️
Being able to enjoy a mouthwatering dinner and the best company while the baba is sound asleep.... my life goals #datenight
Lovely family ride yesterday on our @specializedza machines in Jonkies. It's good to be back!
After 2 and a half months we are going home. One amazing trip and thousands of memories... S.A we are on the way!

"Boy: a noise with dirt on it" @girlmtb1 you are def spot on with that saying
I hardly ever stick around to watch the XCO events as I still get way too emotional. Today however we went to say hi to daddy between the different category events and Thomas was enjoying it so much to play in the mud puddles that we ended up watching the whole race. Wow what a showcase of great racing it ended up being. Seeing the determination of @jaroslavkulhavy was inspirational and @nschurter is just pure class. So happy for Jaro that he ended up back on the mtb. The crowds were insane and left us all with goosebumps. Another great weekend for the dream team that is @iamspecialized_mtb@specializedracing . Well done swissies you did one hell of a job this weekend. 🏻⛈

One tough climb getting to the top of the DH course with 25kg dead weight behind you but perfect picnic spot. Looking forward to some intense racing this afternoon. Go @gregminnaar go @troybrosnan!
When you are too lazy to wake up early and have to run in the heat

Unfit, chubby and completely out of shape. Europe has not been good to my figure and I haven't ridden nearly as much as I wanted to but I am happy healthy and got to spend soooo much precious moments with my baba. Soon we head back to S.A where I will have to start my fitness routine all over. #noregrets#itsthelittlethings
