Pick ‘n Pay Cape Argus Momentum Cycle Tour 2014

I wasn't planning on doing the Argus this year. Although we wanted to, financial and logistical reasons prevented us from entering. However 5 weeks before the race, I received an e-mail from the cycle tour offices asking if Damian and I were participating.
