I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
The main reason is I am doing the Epic it to raise funds for a nominated charity called "Operarion smile" roughly 5 ears ago in 2011, I had most definitely caught the mountain biking bug after completing a few MTB events. I have now really started to become an passionate MTB biker and and have been eyeing the toughest mountain bike race in the world for a while now. It’s was one of my dreams to complete the CAPE EPIC, and is one of those "tick off the list" things in life I would love to do. I see it as pushing myself to my limits and also going on a adventure of a life time while raising funds for charity

Best Results:
Tankwa trek 2016, W2W 2015, 2014, 2013 and this year Epic !
