MUMS AT THE EPIC – STAGE 5

 

2017 is the first Cape Epic where TREAD is a digital media only, as we stopped doing a print issue in about June 2016. It has been so liberating and we have been on a growth spurt ever since. It enables us to cover the Epic in a different way to before, and we are loving it!

Mums supporting the Epic: Candice Posthumus, mum to Daniel (10 months) and Mathew (4), is supporting her husband Mike (Team 33-1). This is the fourth Epic she has supported Mike, the first one she was pregnant with Mathew.
Candice is convinced Mike is Super Dad as he manages to fit in all his training, being a great husband and a supportive dad. She has no doubt that their sons will follow in dad’s footsteps.

 

Mums working at the Epic: Playing an integral part of the daily services offered to the riders, Celeste Peters, owner of Galleria Laundry Services, is thrilled to be part of the Absa Cape Epic. She admits that being at the Epic every day so far has been like a bit of a holiday, because of the change of scenery.
This is a family-run business, which they had had for 18 years. Both her adult son and daughter are here helping out too. This is their first year at the Epic, but being the preferred supplier for the Protea Marriot Hotel group, she feels they are the right fit for the job.
Her wish going forward, should they continue to be part of the Epic, is that the local laundramats that handle the casual clothes cleaning, be set up next to them, so she can guide and help them make their operations more slick, while being convenient for the riders.

 

Mums riding the Epic: Doing her second Absa Cape Epic, Anel Henn (Team 287) seemed relieved that they were past the half way mark.
She did her first Epic in 2015, and at this point, thinks this will be her last.
Being from Hermanus, she is familiar with a lot of the local trails, and this year’s event has been very convenient for them. She has two children, aged nine and seven, but says that preparing for the event with two little ones is tough. She has been lucky that they have been at the event most days to support her.
Anel is riding the race with her brother and has a suspicion that they are the only brother/sister team in the event. Her favourite stage so far was Stage 4 as it wasn’t too technical and today had a lot of fun on the trails too.
