Sebastian Kienle's ride for Cape Epic

Scott-Spark | The Cape Epic stage race in South Africa has it all: eight days covering about 700 kilometers on a mountain bike, countless vertical meters and lots of spectacular views. For mountain bike fan Sebastian Kienle the adventure has been on his list for a long time - even though he believed that he would not be able to pursue such mountain bike adventures until after his career as a triathlon professional was over. But after an invitation from the Ironman Foundation arrived, he has teamed up with fellow pro Ben Hoffman and will compete in the event from March 18 to 25.
