I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
Didn"t want to miss the opportunity of riding with one of my 'Change a Life' Zulus. As it is the most iconic mtb race in the world, who wouldn't want to race it....

Best Results:
Cycling along the pristine Wild Coast of the Transkei. Also traversing along single track across the Chile-Patagonia border in the Andes in an Adventure race I did many years back.

I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
It's the main event for the palmares of any mountain biker - i was also inspired by Stephen Roche's account of the 2013 event when he said it was the 'toughest cycling event he has ever completed' - that coming from the guy has won the Tour de France!!!!

Best Results:
My two Epics to date, both have had major ups and downs but surprisingly I can only remember the good times!
