The Absa Cape Epic

Event information

The Absa Cape Epic is one of the most prestigious mountain bike stage races in the world, held annually in South Africa.

It typically spans over eight days and covers around 700 kilometres of challenging terrain, including steep climbs, technical descents, and varied landscapes. Wild and open, sometimes inhospitable and other times staggeringly beautiful, this land both tests and surprises all who tackle its ungroomed trails.

Teams of two riders from around the globe, both professional and amateur, compete against each other in a test of endurance, skill, and teamwork. The race attracts some of the biggest names in mountain biking, as well as enthusiasts looking for the ultimate challenge.

The route changes each year, showcasing different regions of the Western Cape province and offering riders a unique experience with stunning scenery. Riders face a variety of challenges, from navigating rocky trails to enduring the scorching African sun.

The Absa Cape Epic is not only a physical test but also a mental and logistical challenge. Teams must work together to overcome obstacles, support each other through tough moments, and manage their equipment and nutrition over the gruelling eight days.
