VARSITY COLLEGE ELITE TEAM
In December 2015, Erick and his dad did a bike packing trip - where the desire to ride mountain bike was born. Erick now has great expectations to race the UCI marathon world series, and ultimately contend for the Cape Epic title.
Inspired by Tiger Woods, who has overcome many adversities during his career through an applied work ethic - Erick channels this approach when things start to become difficult.
The Suikerbos Rand nature reserve is one of Erick’s favourites training routes. Although his self-confessed superpower is being calm and laid back, his favorite training session is 5 x 10min variations to include something of everything.
Erick has been using Cadence products for most of his cycling career, and is meticulous to use the recommended 90 - 120g of Carb/hour. Even with planning his nutrition, he keeps a Balanced Energy Bar with him on every ride “in case of emergencies”.
