The Nonstop Sani was recently held for the first time in a few years! And the Hammer Nutrition fueled duo of David Low and Dean Wortmann crossed the very sandy finish line in Scottburgh first, in a time of 13 hours, 25 minutes and 10 seconds.

The race started 02h00 (yes), in a very cold Underberg and then primarily followed the usual 250km Sani2C route, all within a 24-hour cut-off period.

Here are a few of David's thoughts on the event:

“From before the drop into the Umkomaas we were jostling with the other riders, but then they dropped us, so we kept our own pace. We saw them at each of the checkpoints heading off, but we were both so tired. It was probably the hardest thing I have done on a bicycle!

The best was dropping into the Umkomaas and watching the sunrise. We usually start the Umkomaas Valley drop when the sun is already up a little but this, seeing the sun peeping through the mountain, was absolutely mind blowing. It is so quiet that you can hear the river at the bottom thundering and the birds chirping. They don’t call it the mighty Umko for nothing.

Eventually it led to a sprint on the beach and a bit of bike pushing in the deep sand!! Exactly what you need after 250km!!!

David was slightly surprised at the victory, but if you follow Team Tipping Point on social media, you will see that the win was well deserved.

Well done team and we look forward to seeing you back on the start line!
Hammer On!
