@Leisure: Cape Epic

August 22nd, 2014, Published in Articles: PositionIT

 

My teammate Geoff Wood and I decided to take on the Cape Epic cycle race. Entering a race like the Absa Cape Epic is not a decision you make easily. This year’s race was the 11th annual Absa Cape Epic, an eight day 729 km cycle race which includes 14 850 m of climbing, and forms the highlight on the professional mountain bike racer’s calendar.

Before you enter you need to ensure your family understands that they won’t be seeing much of you. Then there is the work side of things; I was lucky that RF Design agreed to support me with some of the costs as well as the time required. Finally getting down to enter the competition was just as daunting – you read about it and see it on TV, and you know it’s going to be really tough.
