More updates from the Absa Cape Epic, after a bit more of a look around. Firstly, a new Look dual-suspension MTB has been spotted, being piloted by the French Look-KMC team, who are riding a stunning race. Although the bike is officially being kept under wraps, it is being raced, and kept in the bike park.
So we scored some photos, and a brief sneaky video.
Also on hand was Jodie Willett, riding hre with Naomi Hansen for the Adidas-Flight Centre Team. They are both riding Merida Ninety Six 26″ dual suspension bikes. In Stage 4 they picked up another 3rd place, helping firm up their overall GC position.
Jodie gratefully used some of her recovery time to explain the features of her bike, and why that’s useful for a race like the Absa Cape Epic
