I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
If Jennie did ask me ;-) no really I actually thought, I don't want it do another time :-( but then I got an invitation from Jennie with the question if I would ride with her! So I ask Team Meerendal if I would get a start place from them, and they said yes! Now I'm here in the preparation for the Cape Epic! I'm really looking forward for the Cape Epic ... it will maybe be on of the Cape Epic with the biggest women competition!!

I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
Absa Cape Epic is the biggest marathon race in the world and it is very special to have a race like that around the corner from where I stay. So as a marathon rider it is a given for me to have the Cape Epic as one of my goals for the year.
