Cape Epic - Stage 2

Pictures say a thousand words, normally, seeing as we don't yet have access to photos read this:
"Stage 2 is arguably the hardest stage in the history of the Absa Cape Epic"

"It was bad. Now worse. Tough day"

More tomorrow.

Make sure you support the boys by texting or emailing your words of encouragement

Mules get stoned during Stage 1


Picture it: only 35 km into a 136km stage, the first stage, and Alex starts getting excruciating spasms to the left side of his back and in the end before reaching the first water stop, had to abandon withe race doctor diagnosing a possible kidney stone. Ugh-oh!
Needless to say Jimmy carried on and rode the stage. Respect. He even made it in before the cut off at 5.
Tomorrow's another day and as they say around here, one day you're the hammer the next day your the nail.

Cape Epic - prologue

Prologue, definition: a preliminary discourse; a preface or introductory part of a discourse, poem, or novel ER NO, it means kicking off the toughest mountain bike stage race in the world with a 17km time trial .
Team Mulebar completed the first stage in 56:21,5 with Alex having a crash after a couple of
riders blocked his line on a downhill section. 56 minutes is a good steady time and no doubt the first stage is a fairly nervy one.

Watch out for the wildlife















Cycling helmets a pre-requisite...
