Urge Cabo Verde - Episode Two

January 20 2011

Rowan Sorrell has been selected to represent the UK (and Wales) for a small invitational event on the small Islands of Cabo Verde, an archipelago off the west coast of Africa. Following races in Kenya and Nepal, the World's Best are heading off in January to raise money for organisations that work with kids in areas of sport and education. Riders joining Rowan will include a field of cycling legends including Hans Rey, Nico Vouilloz, Mark Weir, Sabrina Jonnier and Tracey Moseley. 

Rowan will be shredding the local volcanoes on his polished Alpine 160 with bouncy bits provided by the guys at Mojo suspension.

In an effort to get fit he's been fitting in the odd training ride around his trail building antics, in the vid below he climbs some big Welsh hill before taking to the woods.

This is part two in Mojo's four part web series:
