"Damon, in Cape Town to film The Human Factor, about the 1995 Rugby
World Cup, under the direction of Clint Eastwood, was joined by his
younger brother, Kyle, on a tandem.
“We’ve never been on a tandem before,” Matt said, adding that he was concerned about the wind."
This year’s race was billed as the most challenging in the event’s
32-year history because of the gale-force winds of up to 140km/h.
The Damon brothers, who arrived at the finish shortly
before the seven-hour cut-off time, were whisked away in a golf cart
seconds after climbing off their bike to applause and loud whistling by
“We had to call a mechanic, our bike was stuck in one gear,” a sweaty Matt said.
