What a rest day will do…

We had some excitement on the tour today.  Beyond the rock throwing children that is. For the first time since Egypt we had the opportunity to announce a new Stage Winner.  Mountain biker Jethro De Decker, South Africa,  beat the hardcore road racers by 4 minutes.  Jethro, who loves climbing the mountain around Capetown, used the 2 climbs today today to help achieve his win  "The roadies have less of an advantage on the climbs, they can't use their big gears." De Decker is quickly becoming one of the racers to beat after his strong performance in the off road section of Dinder National Park.  The ever cheeky De Decker  credits is win today to " honour limits and rules, in other words, don't take long lunch breaks just because the roadies do"
