My husband Carl inspires me!
While I’m enjoying some good training in Northern Italy, my better half, Carl is battling it out at the Absa Cape Epic back home in South Africa.
If you don’t already know, the Absa Cape Epic is 8-day mountain bike stage race over some of the toughest and most gruesome mountain biking terrain South Africa has to offer!
This means, that while I am training hard, but with plenty of time to relax and recover; Carl is getting stronger and stronger. So that when he joins me in Europe in just over a week’s time, he can whip my ass into even better shape than before 😉
His message to me yesterday; “I think after this race baby, you gonna struggle to sit my wheel!”
As if Carl wasn’t strong enough already, I look forward to the challenge of having a super human training partner!
I am very blessed to have such a talented and supportive husband, best friend, training partner, and soul mate!
Despite a lot of bad luck with punctures, split tyres and gastro bugs, Carl and his RSAWEB/songo.info teammate Nic Lamond are doing famously well for their first Epic together. They are currently lying 38th overall!
Nic also writes great, daily articles in the Cape Times newspaper.
Well done guys and keep up the great work!
Tomorrow I will be doing a long, hard training ride in Italy to prepare for Carl’s arrival next week 🙂
