Nicol Carstens is a regular podium contender at any major South African mountain bike race. In 2019, riding alongside Marco Joubert, the pair managed an impressive second place in the African Men’s Category at the Cape Epic. Their 11th in the GC underscores the talent within the team.
“I ride my bike pretty much stock standard. I change pressures a lot but the setup always stays the same. I call this thing my SpaceShip because it glides everywhere.” – Nicol // @nicolcarstens
