Profession: Professional mountain biker

I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
As an athlete I love challenging myself, and the Cape Epic is probably the most challenging mountain bike race around. And it covers some amazing terrain, so it should be an incredible adventure. Plus it's such an iconic event, to participate in the legacy of the Cape Epic is a special thing in and of itself.
