I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
The Absa Cape Epic is the pinnacle MTB event on both locally and internationally. Derrin Smith and I teamed up 48 hours before the 2014 event, we loved the experience and continue to race to try and better ourselves and our previous placings. We will be doing our 4th event in a row as a team in 2017
