Cape Epic diary by Trek / VW Team (2008): Index

For the first time, American-based team Trek / VW is sending racers to the internationally reknown Cape Epic mountain bike race in South Africa from March 28 to April 5, 2008. Two men and two women, all four accomplished in various off-road racing disciplines, come together to take on some of the toughest stage racers world-wide. Chris Eatough, who dominates the American 100 mile and 24-hour endurance scene, has partnered with World Cup racer and US Olympic Team contender Jeremiah Bishop while Xterra Off-Road regular Jenny Smith teams up with Sue Haywood, the winner of El Reto Guatemala, TransRockies, and La Ruta de los Conquistadores.

BC Bike diary by Trek / VW & GFK Teams (2008): Index

The BC Bike Race returns to British Columbia, Canada, for its second annual running from June 28 to July 4, 2008. The popular multi-day mountain bike stage race uses the two-person team format and boasts a large amount of singletrack through the rugged, Canadian backcountry. Follow the adventures day by day from the vantage point of four racers on two teams including last year's winners Chris Eatough and Jeff Schalk (Trek / VW) and first-time competitors Jason Berry and Jon Posner (GFK Racing). Schalk has been dominating the American 100 miler scene while Eatough is a proven champion at both 100 milers and 24 hours races. Film-maker Jason Berry and Jon Posner are long-time endurance enthusiasts and also two of the men behind the movie 24 Solo, which documented Eatough's bid for a seventh 24 hour World Championship Solo title.

The Nat Ross diary (2006 - 2008): Index

Racing for seven years as pro mountain biker, 36-year-old Nat Ross' name is synonomous with endurance racing, and he is a master at 24-hour solo races. The super-chill Ross hails from Colorado and knows how to go the distance, day or night. A winner 24 Hours of Moab in 2004 and 2006, he has been a member of the Subaru Gary Fisher team longer than any other racer.

Saugy races as an amateur; she is also pursuing a teaching degree in history and geography.

Niki Gudex diary (2004 - 2005) Index

Riding in 2004 for Intense Cycles' new cross-country team, Niki will be concentrating on the NORBA cross-country series, North American World Cup races and of course the Australian series and championships, though she will still ride a few downhills too. Follow her adventures as she crosses over from gravity to heart, legs and lungs in her exclusive diary on Cyclingnews.
