10 Years of Epic Riding

Just incase you haven't noticed the ABSA Cape Epic is rolling through the Western Cape for the 10th time. Its an amazing story of a race that started as an idea in mountain biker Kevin Vermaak's head. Now it is a world class event attracting the best riders in the world year after year.
Stage 1 of this years epic proved once again that this is not an easy race and you have to earn your right to cross the finish line in Lourensford. There was high drama in the openning stage with many of the favorites suffering at the hands of the harsh african conditions. The most spectacular was Mennen getting hit by a buck ending his race, others suffered in the sand and with punctures.
Our favorites are Sauser and Kulhavy riding for Burry Stander Songo. Follow the race live at www.cape-epic.com
