Perskindol Swiss Epic

Had a plan of writing this this morning but time flew by and I had to leave to learn more about new stuff from Specialized.

Yesterday this years Swiss Epic started. A stagerace in the Swiss alps that got hyped with many big names last year. This year seems like it is down to normal with the regular stage racers including the dreamteam of Annika Langvad and Ariane Kleinhans who won the prologue yesterday:

And a new win today that doesn’t show here:

Awesome trails that makes me wanna ride it some year 🙂

Absa Cape Epic last stage, with emotions

An emotional day at Cape Epic yesterday when Annika Langvad had birthday and it was the last race of Christoph Sausers impressive career:

I’ve heard some rumors about what Sauser will do now and if they are correct he won’t disappear from the cycling scene 😀 Let’s hope they are correct and he will be in to lift the sport even more.

Absa Cape Epic stage 6 and newest kit

Sauser back in a Evade helmet (why changing between Prevail and Evade?) and Kulhavy seems to have no problems just push on 😉 If you want to be as cool as Sauser and Kulhavy and help the people in South Africa, then you should buy a bike from them. Their special Cape Epic bikes will be auctioned out on Songo.info after the race. Seemed like a good day today for Specialized Racing:

and I used my new Oakleys on my way to and from work today. New Oakley Radarlock that I won earlier, works pretty good riding asphalt without prescription 😉

Now time to prepare for tomorrow. First race coming up 😀 😀
