Absa ConquerAsOne Finalist Named

yentl |

The votes have been tallied and the public have chosen! Cecil Bosman’s story of overcoming hardship in the saddle has gotten him and his riding partner (who is also his brother) Francois Bosman, one step closer to touching Absa Cape Epic soil in 2019. The brothers will go head-to-head in a vote out against the ConquerAsOne heroes from this year’s Absa Cape Epic #ConquerAsOne on-event rider competition, and the best of these teams will walk away with that Absa Pride team entry.

How the competition works

Absa is recognising riders who have overcome adversity in the saddle, through their #ConquerAsOne competition which takes place in three phases.

  1. A reader competition hosted on the Bicycling website.
  2. A rider competition recognising teams that overcome hardship during the 2018 Absa Cape Epic.
  3. A phase in which the two winning teams go up against each other in a final round of voting on the Bicycling website.

Cecil and Francois are the finalists in the first phase of the competition. Keep an eye on Bicycling’s Facebook page to stay on top of what happens next.

Cecil Bosman’s winning story

Cecil and his riding partners cycled from Marrakech, Morocco to Knysna, South Africa – covering 18,500km without any support. They used the trip as a platform to raise funds for Aids orphans. Overcoming many obstacles along the way, they supported each other to stay motivated and true to their cause. This led to an inseparable bond between these riding mates.

Cecil hopes to take to Absa Cape Epic soil in 2019 with Francois.

The Bosman brothers hail from Knysna, where they took to outdoor adventure at a very early age. Cycling has always been one of their hobbies, and together they have overcome many obstacles on the bike.
