I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
After shooting this race for so long and capturing what the riders go through to finish each stage just made me want to experience it as well. I have witnessed some grueling days, but still wanted to see for myself while at the same time carry a camera to capture the emotion from amongst the riders.
