Good luck team Epic4Joe!

Epic 4 Joe - all systems go!Tomorrow is the big day for Mark and Dave – they will take part in the first stage of the World’s toughest mountain bike race: The Cape Epic. We wish them the best of luck. They’re going to need it – this really is a challenge to end all challenges.

For those of you not familiar with this race, there is full coverage of the event on Cycling News. I learned an interesting bit of trivia there: the Cape Epic is categorized as a “Hors Categorie” event by the UCI (cycling’s World governing body). It is the only mountain bike event in the World to have this status which is the same status as the Tour de France! So, if you haven’t done so yet, go and sponsor them – they deserve it.

Come back to the blog over the next few days to see how they are getting on. Mark has promised to send me a status report each day if he a) has network coverage and b) is physically capable of typing an SMS!
