Best Results:
A weeks stage MTB-alpine trip to Bormio and a weeks stage MTB-alpine trip St. Moritz/Davos. This made me fall in love with multiple stage races like Cape Epic (2012,2013,2014,2016,2017,2018), Brasil Ride (2015), Swiss Epic (2014), The Pioneer (2018), TransAlp, AlpenTour, Engadin Bike Giro, etc, etc. , I’m in love with this sport ever since I started cycling 15 years ago!!
And ofcourse, I’m happy to be one of the 8 Epic Legend Medal holders!
