Kross Racing Team ready to make Absa Cape Epic Debut

For our partner Kross Racing Team, the 2019 season will be unique in many respects. The team, which so far has focused on two main goals - the World Cup and the World Championships, will take part in a totally new event - The Absa Cape Epic. A merciless stage race in South Africa, with traditions dating back to the beginning of the 21st century. The International Cycling Union (UCI) has labeled it the highest possible category - SHC. Despite the fact that the debut takes place in Africa, the members of Kornel Osicki have not made their intentions to play the leading roles a secret.
