I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
I think the The Cape Epic is a challenge that i would like to realize, and in doing so i can inspire others to challenge themselves. I raced it in 2016 and am back to improve on my results

Best Results:
My first stage race was the 2014 Sabi extreme solo(3 day) which i really enjoyed the rain and finshed 10 vet, then the sani2c in 2015 and then decided to go for the 2016 Cape Epic. i enjoyed the race and returned under the ABSA Pride group for the 2018 Cape epic to improve on our previous position with my first Partner. It was not to be as we both fell ill with my partner not being able to continue and i finished as a Solo Rider. In 2019 i am back and ride with my other riding partner who will be doing his second epic.Our goal is to improve on his previous results.
