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. To be the defending champion will of course make it even more special.
