Unfortunately after Sean and I’s Cape Epic Training camp in Joburg just over 2 weeks ago I left my lap top charger cable behind, hence the lack of posts on the site… My sincere apologies.
As I mentioned in a previous blog the Attakwas was supposed to be Sean and I’s season opener but due to my sickness it was recommended by the doctor for me to just do the half marathon at a fairly chilled training ride pace. Sean did the full race and finished solidly in the top 30; this indicates that his Epic preparations are well on track. Our goal for this year’s Cape Epic is a top 30 and with good training and support I am quietly confident we can pull it off.
The weekend following the Attakwas I headed up to join Sean for a 3 day training camp in Joburg. We did some great riding up there including a 130km day out to Buffelsport on the mountain bikes and a day at the Kings Kloof trail park. The 30km loop of this park is made up of close to 20km of quite technical single track! It was an awesome day out on the bike and great to work on our technical skills a bit.
