I entered the Absa Cape Epic...
“Challenge creates change”. I’ve been asked what success looks like to me a lot recently… and it's made me take some time to think. I know the one thing I do want with this sport is to evolve and you can’t do that by doing the same, comfortable thing. That would be continuing to do XC races in my "wheelhouse". That’s why I’m incredibly stoked/eager/intimidated to head to South Africa with the team. I want to step up to the plate and see what happens.
