Last Preparations for Absa Cape Epic in South Africa

Both Rohloff-Endorfin-BSN riders Ralf Kropp and Michael Opper will be starting of the world's hardest MTB stage races from 27.03. to 03.04.2011 in South Africa. The multiple stages will take them over a distance of 707km where they will have to manage a total of 14,500 meters altitude. Last weekend saw them continue their training in the mountains of North Hessen here in Germany.

The foundation for the stage race is now laid. The most important factor now is simply keeping teh motivation levels at their peak. First though, the required equipment has to be packed and ready to go!
