Five-time national marathon champion Robyn de Groot and three-time Cape Epic winner Ariane Luthi will join forces for the three-day Great Zuurberg Trek, which starts in Addo, Eastern Cape, on May 25. The pair will ride under the Team Ascendis Health-Spur banner. De Groot, who won her fifth straight national marathon championship title in Pietermaritzburg last year, said she was looking forward to a new challenge alongside Luthi. “I have never ridden in the Addo area before,” she said. “New challenges and new adventures keep my motivation at a high. “I have always heard great reports of the race, so when Ariane and I spoke about potentially doing it together I jumped at the opportunity.” While racing with the aim to win, De Groot is also looking forward to an enjoyable race. “There is no doubt that we will race hard,” she said. “But I am also very sure we will enjoy what the event has to offer. “The Great Zuurberg Trek offers a unique boutique stage-racing experience.”
