The Racing Bug

Once the bug bites..

The Cape Epic – falls and laughs

The Cape Epic Mtb race officially started on Sunday with the Prologue on Table Mountain, riding my local route..

We decided to ride up to Dead Mans tree, the point where the riders will come out after the brutal climb..we rode up Motherfucker 4, actually we walked up with our bikes as its too steep to ride.

Once we arrived on top, we were told that we cannot watch at the spot on the grass because we were on our bikes, this pissed us off..but nonetheless we got over it and just stood on the other side.

Riders were crawling up the brutal Motherfucker 1 hill and then the climb up to Big Tree, as know by the locals and Strava..

TV crew was in the helicopters and apparently they made one of the female pros fall off her bike whilst climbing Motherfucker 1…hectic..

After this they headed onto Tafelberg Rd and encountered the bridge that was built and this led to the single track…at the end of this bridge there were loads of falls/crashes…

Prologue highlights:

Yesterday saw the riders in Elgin and here they are climbing the Groenlandberg Mountain:

Yesterday was brutal with loads of mechanical s and challenging weather.

It's the thin line between reality and fantasy. It's the thin line between sanity and madness. It's the crazy things that make us think, laugh and scream in the dark.
