I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
The Epic is regarded as the Tour de France of mountain biking. What an great opportunity to rub shoulders with the best riders in the world while earning your stripes! :) Even though it might only be in the starting shoot....lol

Best Results:
Completing the Trans-baviaans in 11hrs and also the Attakwas Extreme. I have done many multi-stage races so nothing really stands out.
I have enjoyed them all! :)
