Cycling is a life-changing sport that allows you to truly immerse yourself in your surroundings, while also improving your overall health and wellbeing. It is also a passion of mine and a long-time hobby. That is why I am looking forward to the 2022 Absa Cape Epic this year, which will be kicking off at the Lourensford Wine Estate. It is fantastic to see sporting events, such as this, increasingly taking place in our province. This will bolster our local economy and support job creation. After what has been a very difficult 18 months, we are getting back on track ensuring that we address the second pandemic of joblessness.

Good luck to all riders tackling the 2022 Absa Cape Epic!
