Race bike gets a shakedown.

Gave the race bikes a good shakedown in the Tokai Forest last night. Some utterly amazing trails right on the doorstep here in Cape Town. My first ride on the tubeless Maxxis Crossmarks. Wish i had trails like that on my doorstep...

Day 3 started early with Rudolf poking his head through our window at 05:50 saying "we gotta leave in 5minutes!" We set up the Mule Bar tent at the Cape Epic registration and jumped on the ferry over to Robben Island.

This was home to 120 political and state prisoners from 1964 until the wnd of Apartheid. Had a guided tour round the prison where Mandela spend 20-odd yrs in a 6 x 4ft cell, followed by a ride/tour round the island. Another opportunity for some tweaks to the Specialized.
