Without the support of my partners, I would not be able to do what I do what I love. Words fail me when it comes to “thank you” as it feels so insignificant comparing to what they’ve given me. I am so grateful. Big up to the team at SWIFT, Hans from Fedhealth, Rob from RSA Web, Kath from New Balance, Albe from USN and Mariette from 2XU. And Helmut, you are God sent.

For mNew Balanceore than 100 years, New Balance has worked to move the world around us. They believe in one simple truth – we were born to move. New Balance joined me from the beginning and I couldn’t be happier with their shoes and apparel. I absolutely love the Revlite 890 for road and the Leadvilles when hitting the offroad.

USNUSN is a comprehensive healthy lifestyle nutrition supplement brand. They formulate their products with extensive research and development using the latest technology, scientific findings and clinical trials.  I couldn’t imagine training without the Purefit Epic Pro and the zero sugar Hydrator.

Fedhealth With a philosophy of providing top quality medical aid with value added benefits to members, Fedhealth is a medical scheme that stands out. They are one of the few medical aids that cover me during a race. it is evident that I cannot do without them.  As a father, the health and safety of my family is first priority and I can sleep soundly at night knowing we are covered by the best.

MerakiMeraki is a small eatery in the heart of Stellenbosch. They have the best coffee in town and I cannot start my day without going past the shop on 42 Ryneveld street to grab a cup of love. They keep my stomach full with hearty, nutritious food that not even my beautiful wife can top! It is a place to gather and enjoy fellowship with loved ones, most definitely a must when visiting Stellies!

ContinentalQuality, German made rubber. I am so impressed with the Gatorskin – the market leader amongst road bikers for puncture protection. The reptilian design sets the tone for eating up those miles!

Virgin ActiveNot much need to be said about Virgin Active. The Western Cape is known for having all the seasons in one day and no one likes to train in the rain. So it is nice to know that when its wet outside, and a long ride awaits – I can go sweat it out on the Watt bike indoors. I believe that being active should be a lifestyle therefor I love VA’s vision when it comes to being active: “live happily ever active” .

CoimbraWith my return to the Eastern Cape, I joined forces with Coimbra Cycles and am so excited to have them on my Team. My bikes are a vital part of my training and performance – I am relieved to know that I have the No.1 bike shop in PE on my side.
