As an avid cyclist, it is my great pleasure to welcome all participants to this year’s Absa Cape Epic, spanning from Table Mountain National Park to Val de Vie Estate.

The Absa Cape Epic has become a key racing event for amateur and elite riders from South Africa and abroad. Participants truly earn their name in ‘The Book of Legend’ by navigating the most breath-taking scenery and challenging mountain bike trails in the Western Cape.

I want to especially recognise all those who have made this race possible, from the route planners, and the organisers, to the sponsors, the service teams and the emergency personnel.

While the 2020 Absa Cape Epic was set back by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is because of your hard work, attention to detail and love of this sport that the we can enjoy the same route this year, which promises to be the best yet!
