This is what Jonathan said about the race:
"I just loved the race. Great, beautiful route and extremely good organisation. The entertainment was great. The vibe along the route was out of this world. Definitely I will be coming next year, and the year after. There are no low-lights. The high-light was my group I travelled with - all such nice people."
Jonathan mentioned that the race organisers don't need to improve. "But you will always find things and ways to improve, make it even better, bigger & more exciting." Jonathan mentioned that De Rust should keep the country atmosphere. "This is what makes the race very special. I enjoyed the vibe in De Rust & love the De Rust people. For sure I enjoyed the VIP area. Make space next year in the VIP area. I'm bringing a crew."Jonathan Kaplan and Leon Cohen at the start in Meiringspoort, De Rust.
