I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
The Absa Cape Epic is one of the biggest mountain bike stage races in the world and therefore it’s always exciting to be part of it. Last year I partnered with Theresa Ralph for our first Epic together as a team. We had a successful run in 2016 and enjoyed the dynamic in team a lot. Obviously this left us hungry for more  We are both very fortunate to have the backing of our sponsors (Garmin, Galileo Risk and Gear Group) allowing us to be back in 2017.

Best Results:
1st African Ladies Team at the Absa Cape Epic and 5th overall( 2016). 1st Ladies Overall Isuzu Pe2Plett (2015 & 2016)
1st Mixed Team overall Sani2C ( 2015)
Podium spot at Craft Bike TransAlps (2013), 2nd overall at Breck Epic, Colorado USA (2012), 1st MTN Crater Cruise (2010), Silver medal at SA Champs (2010)
