Daytrippers Epic Training Camp

20 Jan 2012

Late last year, Trevor McLean Anderson was in contact with Songo to let him know that he would sponsor 4 of the songo kids and a mentor, Nic Lamond, to go on the Daytrippers 4 day Cape Epic Training Camp taking place from the 11th to the 15th January 2012.

We had 4 very excited kids that boarded the Daytrippers bus, with bikes loaded and gear packed, ready to head out to Robertson.

The boys had so much fun, relaying all their stories to  Songo when they got back on Sunday. They were spoilt rotten and were taken such great care of by Di and Steve Thomas of of Daytrippers.

The camp gave them the opportunity to boost their fitness and suss out the Cape Epic routes ahead of the event in March under the watchful eye of Nic Lamond, who helped with advice on nutrition, training and race strategies. Nic said that each day Azukile and Luyanda were out front in the break-away group, leading as their effortlessly climbed all the big Epic mountains. It's going to make for exciting times at the Cape Epic!

Thanks so much to Trevor, Di, Steve and Nic for making this such a great experience for the guys.
