With the Cape Epic as their hometown race, the South African duo of Marco Joubert and Nicol Carstens approached the 2019 edition of the XC stage race with ambitions of not only representing themselves and their team but also delivering a strong result for their home country.

Riding their Anthem Advanced Pro 29 bikes and wearing Giant Rev helmets, their solid performances eventually saw them finish 11th on the overall GC and also second in the Absa African Men's competition to take the final podium among African teams racing.
