Broken wrist sidelines top women's contender for The Unlimited Dusi
February 2012  

Hillary Pitchford

Top contender for The Unlimited Dusi women's title Hillary Pitchford has been sidelined by a broken wrist following a freak accident while training for the three day classic that starts at Camps Drift on 16 February.

Pitchford was carrying her K2 canoe with her partner Tamika Haw on a trail run when her ankle clipped a rock, causing her to fall heavily, breaking her fall with her hand and in the process fracturing bones in her hand.

A frustrated Pitchford, who has the hand in a cast from elbow to fingers, says there is an outside chance that she might still be able to take part in the race, as her doctor hinted that the cast could come off the day before the race.

Pitchford became the toast of the paddling community last year when she won the female section of the brand new International Canoe Federation World Series after a string of consistent performances in major river marathons around the world.

"It's so frustrating!" said Pitchford, who was out in support of her boyfriend Deon Bruss as a second on the weekend. "The partnership with Tamika (Haw) was going so well that I was really excited about our Dusi. We just seemed to click. It was one of the best partnerships I've ever paddled in, so the break just makes it doubly frustrating!"

The gutsy Pitchford is refusing to write off her Dusi, even though she knows that she will risk aggravating the injury by racing so soon after it comes out of the cast.

"We will just have to wait and see," says Pitchford with a typical twinkle in her eye.

Pitchford paddled with defending champ Robyn Kime during the early part of the season, until Kime confirmed she had arranged to paddle with Dusi Queen Abbey Ulansky, who was flown back to South Africa from her new home in Canada by the new pro team Team Best 4 Kayak Centre to defend her K2 title with Kime.

With the Howick based Adie twins Abby and Alex set to challenge strongly for the title, the new pairing of Pitchford and Haw was set to add even further spice to the race for the women's title.

The Unlimited Dusi canoe marathon from Camps Drift, Pietermaritzburg to Blue Lagoon, Durban takes place on 16-18 February 2012.

Ant does Dusi – this time for fun
7th February 2012  

Ant Stott

With his doctor’s approval, plans to raise money for charity and a competitive spirit swopped for a more relaxed approach, Dusi celebrity Ant Stott is ready to race.

The 2007 and 2009 champion will be paired with TV personality Bonang Matheba, and they have paddled together in Johannesburg as part of their training.

Stott, who has an injured Achilles tendon, said next week's Unlimited Dusi canoe marathon would be his first attempt at "a social race".

"Under normal circumstances I race to win, but this year it’s about charity, camaraderie and enjoyment," said Stott, who finished a split second behind Andrew Birkett in last year's Dusi.

"I was really impressed by her strength and drive – and she’s a really great person," he said.

"She definitely has the guts to get to the finish and I'm sure she'll love it and will be back again next year for more."

Matheba was equally enthusiastic. "I’ve only paddled for recreation before, but love to explore new and exciting ways of staying in shape and having fun," she said.

Stott and Matheba will form part of the Ginger Army, a group of celebrities who have teamed up with top paddlers to help Dusi charities such as The Unlimited Child, an early childhood development initiative, the Dusi Umgeni Conservation Trust and the SPCA.

Tyronne 4th at XTERRA Buffelspoort!
February 2012  


Tyronne comments:

"XTERRA Buffelspoort is one of the toughest XTERRA courses I have raced on and is extremely demanding on your body, from the heat to the altitude and extreme rocky conditions. It has everything to test you to your breaking point. Without my bottle of PeptoSport I dont think I would have managed to keep up my pace on the bike and hold on to 4th overall on the run. It was a grueling day but thats why I love the sport. Thanks to PeptoSport for helping me get the most out of my body in training and on race day."

WELL DONE Tyronne!
