Destination Trail – Tasmania. Specialized rider Troy Brosnan makes me want to pack my bags and go ride flowy Tazzie trails. Wow.


Caveman rock drops fat tyred Stumpjumper 6Fattie

Now that I’m retired from racing, I love trail riding just for fun. Stellenbosch (South Africa) has plenty of great trails, like the new Red Route in Jonkershoek.

In the edit I drop my Specialized Stumpjumper 6Fattie into the rocks. I ride the 3 inch wide 650B tyres quite soft- 18psi rear 15 psi front (1.2 and 1 Bar) they just soak up the trail rubble and let you rail the trail.

Caveman’s go everywhere, do anything bike!

#TBT Caveman catches air at XTERRA Milwaukee 2005

Conrad Stoltz jumps MTB XTERRA Milwaukee

XTERRA Milwaukee was one of my favourite XTERRAs of all time. Right in the middle of the city build by beer loving Germans, and stunning, rough and ready bike & run courses.

This year was insanely hot and humid – you can see I’m glowing like a ripe tomato, with top rolled up to get more ventilation. To manage the heat exhausted athletes at the finish, the city parked a huge double decker city bus with Aircon running flat out to cool cooked athletes down.

The 2nd year was pouring with rain, we had a duathlon and I crashed really hard- 3 times

Humpty Dumpty did an Xterra – Milwaukee

Cant believe how far bike design has come in 10 years! The 2005 Specialized Sworks Epic was aluminium, the new Brain shock was on the seat stay, no Brain in the fork, bars were narrow, shoes were modified XC shoes (I cut the tongues out) and Mavic was the best wheels around. (Now  we have Roval wheels)

The Greyton Classic weekend.

Greyton Classic 2015 - MTB (24)

The Oaks Estate.  The setting for the Greyton Classic MTB race is quite idyllic, when it comes to scenery and ambiance. Central to the race is the Ehlers family, who owns and runs the wedding venue and working farm, which is centered around their beautifully restored Cape Dutch farmstead. Gert’s Nguni cattle roam the hills and Liezel and I picked Pink Lady apples till our pockets (and cheeks) bulged.
