Remaining humble about his achievements, Basson said he put the team above his personal accomplishments.
“We as a team always ride as a unit,” Basson told In the Bunch. “Whatever happens and whoever [in ProTouch] is in the best position, [that rider] would go for the win.
“Depending on the racing on the day anyone in the team who wins would make it a team victory.
“We plan to go out there and ride as hard as we can.”
Despite his recent victories, Basson said he had not underestimated his competition ahead of the 100km race.
“There are a lot of good teams,” he said. “It will be a relatively flat race, meaning BCX’s Clint [Hendricks] and Nolan [Hoffman] will be a big threat.
“We will have to be on top of our game to stop those guys. They will be riding hard for victory.”
Following his observation of the route, Basson predicts a “flat and fast” race.
“If the wind comes up, it will be a decisive factor in deciding the outcome.
“Anything can happen on the day though. You never know with racing, but I am sure it may come down to a bunch sprint.”
Basson said he was feeling sick before the Tour de Limpopo started and decided not to over-strategise or over-think the upcoming race. The same would apply this time.
“I was not feeling too super before the tour. I had a big migraine and I could not even keep my food in. I then ended up getting a good result.
“At Tour Durban we just started the race to race it and nothing much else.
“I am always excited to race my bike, which is why we do this. I will have the same approach for this weekend’s race.”
