Win a Pair of Faceplant Sunglasses this issue in our FREE subscriber prize draw.
For many, the Absa Cape Epic is the pinnacle of an MTB race. With growing popularity and media attention year after year, it has earned the name of the “Mountain Tour de France” among the cycling community.
The hard but spectacular route, worthy of a World Cup or a World Championship race designation, made this stage race a world reference within the MTB UCI calendar.
In the documentary, “The Mecca of MTB,” Orbea Factory Team rider Ibon Zugasti, KMC Orbea rider Oliver Avilés, various people from the organization, local participants and the South African Orbea distributor shows us everything about this race and how the region welcomes this race with open arms.
Trails made and cared for by hand, spectators throughout the entire route and top-notch organization akin to a World Tour race are just some of the examples that make the Absa Cape Epic truly special.
