In the lead up to Race Week, we're going to introduce you to some of the faces you'll see on the course and around Race Village. First up is Team 'Perskindol-ANS-R3', better known as Ken and Kevin from Hong Kong.
Ken has been a mountain biker for over 16 years. Hong Kong is a very small city geographically, but with over 7 million people, there are only very few places to ride a mountain bike!
Ken is a 3x @capeepic finisher and this year also finished @swiss_epic , so his goal is to complete #ThePioneer and take home a prestigious Epic Legend medal. "I feel The Pioneer is very special for me. Firstly, I have never been to New Zealand before, and second is after this race, I can complete the top 3 mountain bike stages race in @epicmtbseries. My goal in The Pioneer is to ride safe with my partner and enjoy the beautiful landscape." #FindWelcome @chengchakshing
