I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
I am passionate about mountain biking. Not only is the exercise great, but it helps me clear my mind and to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and to spend time in nature. It allows you to remain competitive despite your age as the local races are set up on the basis that you compete in your age category. It has also been a life-long dream for me to participate and complete the Cape Epic.

Best Results:
Various mult stage races. Undoubtedly Finishing the 2013 and 2014 Cape Epic
