Roll of Honour

Up until the end of 2012 a Super Randonneur was achieved by doing a 200, 300, 400 & 600 km BRM within a rolling 12 month period – it then changed to within a calendar year – and from 2015 onwards SR’s will be awarded for doing same within a rolling 10 month period.

The fine print:

  1. It can be done in any order.
  2. Higher distances can stand in for shorter distances.
  3. A 1000km BRM is a standalone event.
  4. An event can only be a qualifier for one SR series.
  5. You can achieve a maximum of 1 SR award in during a period.

Paris-Brest-Paris

We have 38 Randonneurs, with 43 Homologations. Fast facts:

In 2003 Aurasan was awarded the “Coup de la Commission” for finishing 8 riders from 8 starters.

Edward Thomlinson was 73 when he successfully homologated in 90hr08min in 2003.

In 2007, Nico de Albuquerque (18) received the award for the youngest finisher.

Adolf Krige, also 18 years of age, but a few months older, also successfully completed the course.

In 1978, Karl Geugis from Bellville, completed the PBP in 63hr38min. Sad to relate Karl was killed in a car accident in France where he was studying.
