I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
I was given this amazing opportunity by Derek Chung. I worked at the Epic as mechanical support for 3 years now and next year the amazing opportunity to ride it myself. It would be great to be the second one in the Rossouw family to ride and finish a Epic. Very big respect for the Epic racers and big respect for my partner Derek who has finished the Epic 3 times.
