I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
I’m really excited to be racing the Absa Cape Epic after living in Cape Town for the past 2 years. Table Mountain is apart of my weekly training routes so starting off with the Prologue there is going to be really special. I’ve watched my training partner race the last 2 years so I’m stoked to be taking part now and along side the power house Sam Gaze. Excited to see how the race unfolds for us!

Best Results:
I would say the two World Titles in u23, to be able to say only myself and the great Absalon have been able to achieve is flattering. Beyond that I have been able to experience what winning an elite World Cup is like, unsurprisingly it has left me with an even greater desire to get to that level again.
