Every March, 650 teams (1300 participants) take on the Absa Cape Epic, the world’s premiere mountain bike stage race held in the Western Cape, South Africa. 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 categorie (beyond categorization) by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI). This official UCI status makes the Absa Cape Epic a highlight on the professional racer’s calendar and a coveted must-do race for the aspiring amateur athlete.

This is a once in a lifetime racing opportunity and one that should not be missed!
