Outsource Digital sponsors amateur riders for Epic Mountain Race

25 March 2010, Johannesburg-Outsource Digital, supplier of office automation equipment, has sponsored amateur riders, Garth Walker and Brett Pickford for this year’s Absa Cape Epic.

Friends since school, Pickford and Walker have been cycling partners for 15 years. Together they have completed the multiple Argus and 94.7 Cycle races both together and individually. Of late they have been focusing on mountain biking and have completed a host of local races including the Rhodes Mountain Bike Challenge. However, they have yet to participate in a multistage race such as the Cape Epic.

“It has been our goal to enter the Cape Epic and complete it which we believe is the mountain bike race of all mountain bike races. We may not be the team that will ever win this auspicious race however, just completing it for us is a huge accomplishment,” says Walker. “Having the support and financial backing from Outsource Digital has definitely boosted our confidence and ability to complete this race,” he adds.

The Absa Cape Epic is held every year and cyclists from around the world take part in the race with a goal to complete over eight stages within the eight days, each with its own challenges and difficulties. The route crosses close to 800km of the unspoilt nature of the Western Cape and approximately 16 000m of climbing over some of the most magnificent passes in South Africa including Diemersforntein, Ceres, Worcester and Oak Valley.

“Outsource Digital is proud to be able to sponsor a team at this year’s Absa Cape Epic. Often amateur teams, such as Walker and Pickford don’t have the financial backing and support of local businesses to help achieve their goals of finishing this race,” says Outsource Digital Managing Director, Ryan Pickford.

“We at Outsource Digital believe it is important to show your support to the growth of sport in this country. We are therefore sponsoring the team with everything that the cyclists may need over the eight day race. This race is a test of endurance which resonates closely with our brand ethos and we are confident our amateur team will finish the race with their heads held high,” concludes Pickford.
