THE CAPE EPIC

The Absa Cape Epic is the most televised mountain bike stage race in the world and the only eight-day mountain bike stage race classed as “hors catégorie” by the Union Cycliste Interacionale (UCI). This official UCI status makes it a highlight on the professional racer’s calendar. The Absa Cape Epic also attracts aspiring amateur riders wanting to test themselves against the best in the world. The route changes every year and leads riders through roughly 800km of unspoilt scenery and 16 000m of accumulated climbing, over some of the most magnificent mountain passes in South Africa.

HEADLINE SPONSOR

CAPE BREWING COMPANY

Team Meerendal is very proud to have the Cape Brewing Company onboard as our headline sponsor. CBC became a reality when the Swedish brewer, Henrik Dunge joined the team of two beer enthusiasts, Charles Back and Andy Kung and helped to put their words into action to establish a brewery that makes beer as it should be made — in true craft style. It was agreed that only the finest ingredients would be good enough for CBC beer. CBC leaves the shortcuts to lesser beers. As with anything worth doing well, there are no quick fixes or half measures when your goal is to produce the finest beer. The harder the work, the greater the reward.
