Meanwhile, the Iron Horse Maidens Pedal On

While we're getting all amped on racing downhill on the west coast, one of our favorite pro gravity girls kicking arse in South Africa. Anka Martin and her teammate Megan Hilliard are just about half way through the Absa Cape Epic, which is an 8-stage endurance mountain bike race. Anka, a ripping downhiller and native of South Africa is riding the Epic for a second time. She and Megan are both on Iron Horses (in case you hadn't caught that), and are competing with some of the best endurance cross country riders in the world. They're currently ranked 16th among the women's team. Yeah!

Check out http://www.cape-epic.com/ to track the Iron Horse Maidens through the finish of the race on Saturday.
