Only a couple of weeks until Team Konstructive Dream-Bikes will start the ABSA CAPE EPIC MARATHON MOUNTAIN BIKE RACE in South Africa
The 17th edition of the Absa Cape Epic will take place from 15 to 22 March 2020 and will be as challenging as ever. Local and international mountain bikers will tackle the demanding eight-day race through South Africa’s Western Cape.
The Absa Cape Epic must be completed by both members of a two-person team with only 650 teams allowed to ride the race. The route changes every year, leading aspiring amateur and professional mountain bikers from around the world through roughly 700 untamed kilometres of unspoilt scenery and up 16 000m of vertical ascent.
The Absa Cape Epic is the most televised mountain bike race in the world and the only eight-day mountain bike stage race classed as hors catégorie by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI); this official UCI status makes it a highlight on the professional racer’s calendar. The Absa Cape Epic also attracts aspiring amateur riders wanting to test themselves against the best. It is a full-service race, meaning that everything is taken care of from the start – all riders need to think about is riding.
