Cape Epic Athlete Review

I recently completed the Cape Epic mountain bike race in the Western Cape of South Africa. It was an 8 day event with exceptionally high temperatures and UV ratings. As a 54 year old, with fair skin and a long history of terrible sun burns, I was very concerned with how I was going to manage the effects of being outside all day while sweating and being exposed to the sun.

Fortunately I had the luck of finding William and his product Surf Clay. I applied it once in the morning and again mid way through the race each day at one of the water stops. I can honestly say that I have never used a better product. Not only did I avoid any sunburn, but I had piece of mind knowing I was protected. In an event as intense as Cape Epic, this was a huge relief and I am a customer for life.

Thanks William for sponsoring your product and being at the event. It made a huge difference for me and I am grateful.

All the best
