Hi, I’m Nic Manshon.
Creativity, for me, started back when I was drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and entering Mother’s Day competitions for KTV. I always loved art as a kid and did it as a subject throughout my schooling career. 
If I were to be totally honest, I never saw a career in creativity in high school, even though art was my highest marked subject. 
Hence, I went to study personal training straight after high school and thereafter worked for Virgin Active for a while. Soon enough I realized that it wasn’t for me. Nonetheless, I believe nothing is lost with learning.
After having these feelings to change my career, I started exploring creativity again. That was a good choice!
The journey started out at CPUT, studying industrial design and serving at a local church, heading up the media department. After that, I got a scholarship for digital filmmaking at SAE.

Hi there, my name is Duncan Hoole, I'm an aspiring MTB athlete from Cape Town, South Africa currently racing in my 3rd year as an U/23 MTB rider proudly supported by Drip Drop SA and Cycle Teknix.

The journey all began one afternoon in 2014 when I decided to dust off my bike that was originally hanging up in the garage. I’ve always been a sporty person, taking part in various different sport disciplines during my school days, but never found my true love for any sport until I got back onto my bike.

I started off racing Half Marathons in 2015 and managed to achieve my goals of achieving top 10 finishers and multiple age group podium spots in 2016. This year, I decided to take the leap to Marathon and Stage Racing which so far has been a difficult adjustment not getting the results I'm training for...

We are currently in the 2nd half of the season, I'm feeling a lot better than I did in the first half. I've got a few big races left this year, with the biggest race being the Double Century (200km) at the end of the year, which is actually a road race...

The ultimate goal is to eventually follow into my Cousins footsteps and take part in the Cape Epic, but will first need to gain some more experience and stamina to
withstand those 8 grueling days!
