UCI World Cup race in Stellenbosch 20. 03. 2018

HEAD Pro Team riders wanted to be prepared as much it will be possible for this race, so they left Europe few weeks before the World Cup race for a training camp. South Africa is a great place for pre- season preparation, because at the time when in Europe we have cold snowy winter, riders can find there hot sunny days. Stellenbosch is also a perfect place, because you can find there never-ending trails and single tracks.

We would like to share with you photo story from this race.
