An iconic stage-racing event, the Absa Cape Epic has become one of mountain biking’s biggest draws globally. The largest full-service mountain bike stage race in the world, the Cape Epic covers 700kms of the Western Cape region in South Africa. The route changes significantly each year and lures amateur and professional cyclists from across the globe to test their mettle.
8 days. 655 kilometres. 15 550 metres of vertical ascent. Rugged mountain dual tracks and rocky singletracks through pristine fynbos. Sandy farm road between manicured orchards. Bone-rattling descents off ancient mountain ranges. This is the 2021 Absa Cape Epic route, proudly brought to you by Land Rover, the Official Vehicle and Route Partner. Wild and untamed. The pinnacle of mountain bike stage racing. The Race That Measures All.
