Once the bug bites..
Absa Cape Epic is an extreme mtb event held in the Western Cape annually..8 days of pure mountain biking experience thats truly unforgetable..
I have buddies thats competing in this event that I would like to reach out too, and they know who they are…best of luck on this amazing journey.
The exciting part for me, is that the Prologue is taking place on the trails that i ride on a weekly basis to work.
Prologue takes place on Sunday the 15th and starts at UCT and heads onto Table Mountain..its a short course but very tough..i think the okes that did not train on this course, will find it very interesting as it will seperate the men from the boys very quickly.
Im referring to the notorious hill called Motherfucker 1 on Strava..this hill is only 300m long but it has a 18% avg gradient…its a beast of a climb…
Once you get your breath from this climb…you will ride down for a short while then you climb up to Dead Mans tree..which ends up on Tafelberg road…this is a brutal climb as well.
So from MF1 to the top big tree…its about 2,7km with a 7% avg gradient…its gonna be tough!
Once you on Tafelberg rd..it climbs again for a short while before hitting the new bridge that was specifically built for this race..so cool to see the okes 2 weeks ago building this bridge…I was tempted to ride the bridge but there is a sign saying that no one must ride it…so I respected that wish..
Once again, its gonna be an Epic race.
