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.
