I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
If Jennie did ask me ;-) no really I actually thought, I don't want it do another time :-( but then I got an invitation from Jennie with the question if I would ride with her! So I ask Team Meerendal if I would get a start place from them, and they said yes! Now I'm here in the preparation for the Cape Epic! I'm really looking forward for the Cape Epic ... it will maybe be on of the Cape Epic with the biggest women competition!!
