I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
I enter Cape Epic because it’s tough, theoretically impossible for me. I happen to be Portuguese and five centuries ago the Portuguese navigator Vasco da Gama faced a similar problem when sailing around the Cape, from the Atlantic to the Indic. He eventually defeated the untamed giant Adamastor and the Cape of Storms became the Cape of Good Hope. In 2020, my challenge is to conquer the untamed Absa Cape Epic and cross that finish line before the lights are off.

Best Results:
2019-2020: to find time for training. As a member of the Portuguese Government, I have full days and many international trips, thus training is really a challenge!
