Thomas Hudson of Paarl Boys’ Boys High, took part in the South African National Mountain Bike Marathon Championships at the Cascades in Pietermaritzburg. Thomas did phenomenally well in this race (a grueling 55 km with 2 000 m of climbing), considering he only started mountain bike races less than two years ago.  Only the very best riders in the country took part in this particular race and Thomas came fifth in his Youth category which means he is currently seeded fifth in his age category for the SA Marathons in South Africa. You rock, Thomas!
