Making History

So the ABSA Cape Epic is underway and it’s going to be fast and frantic in the next couple of days as the competitors attempt to write their names into the history books.

Locally, the South African team of Kevin Evans and David George, as well as the team of Brandon Stewart and Max Knox, will attempt to become the first ever South African team to win the ABSA Cape Epic.

Realistically, these local competitors have what it takes to get into the history books and make a name for themselves, because they certainly aren’t lacking talent or determination. I’m sure the bling and strippers will soon follow hehehehe

I’m sure they’ll be burning up Table Mountain as they come around. Oops, shouldn’t have said the word ‘burn’, since some pyromaniac idiot decided that Cape Town needed less beauty and set it alight.

Regardless, let’s get behind our local teams and hope they bring us all success!

ABSA Cape Epic is tomorrow!

The time is upon us once more – tomorrow is the start of the 8 day, 743km event known as the ABSA Cape Epic! If you’re not in Cape Town yet, you better hurry up and get your toosh there!

gregminaarAs you all may sadly know, fires ravaged the slopes of Table Mountain in Cape Town on late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning. So far, the impact on the race has been minimal, minus the cancelling of a few practice sessions through the regions where the fire spread. However, I do suggest that you visit the official website ( for up-to-date reports and general information about the race!

I really hope they catch the idiot who caused this fire, because even though the race is still happening, he/she still destroyed the beautiful environment and endangered the life of thousands of people! I hope he/she doesn’t sleep at night knowing that they may get caught at any given moment! But I think we should all applaud the emergency and disaster management team that worked extremely hard to contain the fire. Many of these individuals will also be involved in this year’s race. Thank you for all your hard work!

Regardless, let’s not let some idiot ruin the fun! Get on that bike and endure one of the premier races in not only South Africa, but the world. Starting in Lourensford Wine Estate and ending in Somerset West, the ABSA Cape Epic will be just that – epic!
