An Epic of all Epics

The ABSA Cape Epic is expected to be Epic, but would you expect Epic Epic? Well if there is one thing you can always expect from the Cape Epic then it is to expect the unexpected. 

That is just what we got in 2012 as our Team OFM battled the route and the weather to cross the finish line at Lourensford. In one of the toughest if not the toughest Epic yet we had a good ride and luckily had no major incidents although there were a few close calls but we held it together. Our Morewood Zula 26" bikes powered by Shimano 2x10 and serviced by the Shimano service crew performed without fail and we covered the 760km without a single flat thanks to Batseal Tubeless sealant.  

Checkout some of the OFM podcasts from our interviews during the race.

Defending champs Burry Stander and Christoph Sauser held off a brave assault by South Africans Kevin Evans and David George to cross the finish line for their second win. Burry's onboard GoPro camera captured the awesome moment as they crossed the finish line.
