Rider Blog: My First Day

Tony Ireland reports on his first day...

Hi All,

Well I have just finished what I can honestly say is my hardest day ever on a bike. Its a far cry from my normal Forex Trading days! The Cape Epic is described as the World's toughest MTB race and it sounds about right to me.

It is one of those events where you turn up and everyone seems to be just that little bit leaner than you, more focused, on a better bike and way more experienced. Standing on a start line packed with 1200 riders is something that has to be experienced to understand how it feels.
