We both seem to be hitting our straps at the right time. Buzz is strong and I think fitter than when we went into the 2012 race. I might have my work cut out keeping up!!
The next few weeks before we leave for Cape Town, are about packing the bike, sports food and bike kit. This means making endless lists and leaving them around the house!! I rode the new Sworks Epic today and it is all set to go. It is sweet to ride and we did 70k at a reasonable clip today in one of our last MTB hitouts before the race. This afternoon, I put on the new Specailized race tyres. These look fast as well as hardy. They will need to be with the rough South African thorns and rocks on the course. I am sure they will be great and I am looking forward to riding on them.

One more weekend to hone the fitness and clock up some more miles. I am looking forward to this race now...... Bike got packed today. Any more MTBing will be on the 2012 Sworks Epic
