Cape EPIC - Vigne a Vigne MTB RACE - Lourensford 03/04/11
« on: April 04, 2011, 10:28:00 am »

Hiya WDogs

Not sure if you wanna see these but anyway.

Yesterday was the Final day of the Cape EPIC....what an amazing Race.
They Had a Limited Entry Race on the Same Day to end an Hour before the EPic called the Vigne a Vigne
Between the Vines in French....My Asss ..it was 18 Km up the first mountain and the 14 Km down again.
One Tough Race

Only fell my Moer of once...

Pic one is me trying out the Podium....big Lag ...will never get there ,but so be it.

Cool pics! There's some nice routes there in Lourensford and well done on the race!
Have also done a race there and those up's are tough!
Those Epic people sure look tired but very relieved!
