First day in Cape Town
Ibon finally makes it to South Africa to compete in the Cape Epic. To do so he’ll need to fine tune his new Oiz, try on his new uniform and, above all, meet and train with his future race partner, Belgian Alice Pirard.
Our team starts off strong with good feelings in this short but intense stage. Amped up by the first-day race atmosphere and playful terrain, even the long day won’t be able to erase the smiles from our riders’ faces!
Things heat up in Stage 1
Past the pre-race logistics, the team can now get their heads totally in the race in the first full-length stage. Our riders have nearly 100 km to get the lay of the land and scope out their competitors today; the prospects are bright!
