As Nicholas Dlamini rode hundreds of kilometers each day in last week's Cape Rouleur, he also took time to share a video diary of his journey.
Watch his account of the daily race results, the often- grueling weather conditions and his personal ties to the Foundation's work in his hometown.
As our Elton John AIDS Foundation Ambassador, Nic rode with Team EJAF/UBS alongside four cyclists from the bank. Together, they helped to raise 292,000 Rand (over £16,000) for the HIV/AIDS projects that we fund in South Africa.
Nic's ride was a success in more ways than one -- he also won the coveted Yellow Jersey as the highest point-scoring amateur in the race.
