Hi, my name is Juan. Me and a friend called Mulder want to participate in a team stage race in Eselfontein, Ceres. It is about a 2 hour drive from where we live.
Team stage race meaning that both of us start together and must finish together. The race consists of 3 stages and is 3 days in total. There is a small amount of prize money if we win or podium.
We ride and race mountain bikes and its a great activity, loads of fun. We want to participate in this race to to show we can perform in the long and tough races, and of course to have a challenge and enjoy it.
We would really appreciate it if someone can help us out by donating a small fund towards our small goal of $270. For the entry of $57 each, accommodation and gas money we will hopefully make it. To start with if we can cover the entry fee, that will be absolutely amazing! Thanks in advance :)

The last picture is of me and Mulder at the local school Spur cross country races. That day he won the race and I came 10th. Results: https://goo.gl/CYnxk2
Mulder's races this year that he performed on the top level:
He won the spur: https://goo.gl/CYnxk2
He won a xco race: https://goo.gl/WceGsd
He came 5th in a half marathon race: https://goo.gl/fMbnH3
These races are tough and require a very high level of fitness all year round, the marathon races are overall results so that is including all are categories. He is showing good form all year round with winning a race in the start of the season and a race nearing the end of the season.
My races this year I did well in:
I won the Yzerfontein cycle experience overall: https://goo.gl/x74oTw But this was a fun ride..
I came 2nd in the Stellenbosch MTB Challenge: https://goo.gl/q5DTJy
I came 2nd in the Staalwater 2 day stage race: https://goo.gl/q5DTJy with only 3 seconds to the overall win
I also did the recent Spur race and came 10th.
This is most of our results for the season so far. We train hard and have coaches that work with us to become our absolute fittest.
