Mega Avalanche Report by Andrew Neethling Mega Avalanche Report by Andrew Neethling
MEGA AVALANCHE - Reunion Island, South Africa – December 1-3, 2007

The time had come. No turning back now. I was set for a front row start in a race format I had never entered before. There were 160 riders all starting at the same time on a 50-minute downhill.

The start was set for 9am. Call up for our grid positions was based on our heat race results at 8am. This sounds fine until you note that the drive to the top is at least 1 hour on a road with the tightest turns I had ever seen. Car sickness started to set in near the top.
