Cape Town's city centre was sooo quiet last evening: probably more police than other people. Was there no interest in the SOTN address & activities?

Unfortunately not sir. The place is heaving, 5 people deep at the feed zones, local Hoedspruit media has crowded out the front rows.

Are you able to get close enough, through all of the spectators and media there... to actually get a shot or two? 😜

.... Strange... I have now understandably not seen any coverage about the Champs from any party, other than yourselves and InThe Bunch....What is the reason/problem? Maybe a Die Son exclusive😂

So well done to Corne Orffer on winning a R5m stake on Count Jack on SunMet day, equipped as always in our Velotex DraftX Stretch breeches! Certainly has earned his cake 🍰 today!

Wishing our Velotex Brand Ambassador, the ace jockey, Corne Orffer, every success in today's SuMet, when he rides Undercover Agent for Brett Crawford's yard. This may well be the day Corne gets to have his cake and eat it!

Wishing the SunMet Defending Champion Jockey & Velotex Brand Ambassador, Anton Marcus, "the strongest of tailwinds", in today's SunMet, when he rides Hawwaam, for the de Kock stable. Anton will be sporting our aerodynamically superior, "cooler than naked" PolyVent silks.

Former pro cyclist Greg Kemp and I spent a good few hours reminiscing about the good old times when Greg visited last week. My lovingly restored 1979 Gios Torino Super Record enjoyed a lot of his attention. Any current or former Gios owners out there?
