They now lead Faces Rola (Candice Lill and Mariske Strauss) by over 16 minutes in the general classification going into Sunday’s Grand Finale. […] View full article
  3. Fabian Rabensteiner and Wout Alleman (Wilier-Pirelli) rode an absolutely flawless race to win Stage 6 of the Absa Cape Epic. Speed Company Racing (Lukas Baum and Georg Egger) finished second on the day, but more importantly, they did some damage to the overall lead of Canyon Northwave MTB. Baum and Egger will start the Grand […] View full article
  4. South Africa’s Marco Joubert and Pieter du Toit (Imbuko {Type} DEV) won the 115km Stage 5 of the Absa Cape Epic after a thrilling break 70km into the stage from Greyton to Stellenbosch.

  6. Defending champion Matt Beers (Toyota-NinetyOne-Specialized) started Stage 3 of the Absa Cape Epic with an explosion of high-octane mountain biking. With riders still getting into their pedal stroke in the start chute, Beers revved away from the pack, dragging a few startled teams along for the ride. It was a short-lived display of power, but […] View full article
  7. If the story of the Men’s race was Matt Beers charging back to life after a wretched Stage 1, then the same could be said for Pauline Ferrand-Prévot in the CM.com Women’s category. The French superstar – a past World Champion in cyclocross, road, and XCO – was rudely introduced to the realities of the Absa Cape […] View full article
  8. XCO Mountain Bike World Champion Nino Schurter and partner Lars Forster (SCOTT-SRAM) finally came to the party at the 2022 Absa Cape Epic.

  17. Hi,I'm looking for an entry(international) for the 2018 epic. Do you want to sell.... https://www.cape-epic.com/teams/2017/9608/atama Allard@atama.nl
  18. I have done two Epics on the ever-popular Rocket Ron / Nobby Nic (front) and Racing Ralph (rear) combo. Of late the Racing Ralph has been particularly puncture prone. I guess it is the price you pay for the weight saving. In any event, it is time for me to explore other options as I am gatvol plugging tyres. Please share your favourite tyre combos for the Epic.
  19. I have an international entry to sell for the Absa Cape Epic 2018. If anyone is interested, send me an E-Mail, deadline for payment is 30/06/2017.
  20. Those who have ridden Cape Epic....what are riders using for wheels? Aluminum or carbon? What do you see the most of? I hear it is really rocky over there. Just curious....racing in 2018. Brian California, USA
  21. Hi, I have an entry for the 2018 Cape Epic and I had a riding partner. But that partner has just decided to drop out, leaving me no other option than to search for a new partner. What you should know about me? I'm a 53yo man, living in Europe and have finished the 2014 & 2016 Epic, middle of the pack (places 200-300). I take the Cape Epic serious (and will be trained well) but I prefer good memories and lots of laughing and fun above trying to win at all costs that one place to take me from 290th to 289th. What sort of partner am I looking for? Someone who adores riding a bike, is not too young (preferable master or grand master) and has the athletic abilties to ride a mid pack finish. A good sense of humour and positive view of life is important. Living in Western Europe could be a plus, so that we can meet before travelling to SA. But it is no must. And you will, to be clear, pay half of the entry. If you are interested, please don't hesitate to get in touch (via pm) and we can find out if a new partnership can get underway.
  22. Guys, i have an international team entry for Cape Epic 2018 to sell. Someone interested? Price is 6.400 USD (i've paid it in EUR and the exchange rate changed). Please PM only. Cheers Alex =============== SOLD ! ================
