Jaco de Villiers and Nico van Zyl (TEAM BEMER) partnered up and completed the ABSA Cape Epic 2008. (www.cape-epic.com)
NOW THEY WILL BE DOING IT ALL OVER AGAIN IN 2009!
The Cape Epic is now widely regarded as the toughest multi day mountain bike stage race in the world. In 2008 we covered over 960 km's and over 18000m of climbing in 9 days from Knysna to Somerset West. Well, actualy 8 days...day 1 was only a 15km timetrial. 2009 will be a totally NEW LOOK stage race with different challenges. So far all we know is that it will start Gordonsbay.
We have had tremendous support from all over. We will continue to blog of our adventures.
Inspired by our heroes Chazz Michael Michael and Jimmy McElroy, Blades of Glory superstars, and the their quest for glory on the ice, we now will continue to team up for what lies ahead!
Keep an eye on these ever spinning Cranks of Glory, cause they wont stop for nobody! : )
