In this episode of the Diverge Podcast Seamus Allardice chats to, 6 time South African Mountain Biking Marathon Champion, Robyn de Groot. De Groot is recovering from surgery to rectify iliac artery endofibrosis, which is the narrowing of one of the main arteries transporting blood to one’s legs. Her recovery has come at a better than expected rate as she notched up her first post-operation win alongside Samantha Sanders at the 2019 KAP sani2c in May. Since then she has also won the Knysna MTB Challenge and will line up to defend her SA XCM title on the 29th of June at the Nissan TrailSeeker in Buffelsdrift, Gauteng.
