Profession: Casino Manager

I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
After finishing Europe's one of the most technical mtb multistage race Beskidy MTB Trophy in Poland it was clear that I would like to try something more epic. And when in offseason in home country Latvia you often have to train in the dark and winter like weather there must have huge motivation to get out of home. Cape Epic is best motivator for sure. Also we are first Latvians ever to participate in this race.
