The 2016 Absa Cape Epic mountain bike stage race takes place from 13 – 20 March and will take 1200 riders through 647km of the best mountain biking the Western Cape has to offer, from Table Mountain to Tulbagh, Wellington, Stellenbosch and Durbanville.

Although the 647km is shorter than previous years it includes more climbing per each of those kilometres than ever before. In 2016 riders will gain 14950m of vertical gain during the prologue and seven stages.

The world’s premier mountain bike stage race returns to the iconic slopes of Table Mountain on March 13 for the 21km Prologue, which again starts and finishes at the University of Cape Town. They will then transfer to Tulbagh and lots of exhilarating new singletrack on Stages 1 and 2. Stage 3 runs south from Tulbagh to Wellington and the next day’s Stage 4 will be spent on the legendary trails of Welvanpas.

Stage 5 includes five rugged climbs between Wellington and the new race village at Boschendal Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. Stage 6 will introduce riders to the mountain biking delights of Stellenbosch before Stage 7 takes those still left in the race to the Grand Finale at Meerendal Wine Estate in Durbanville … and the well-deserved status of Absa Cape Epic finisher. -  http://www.cape-epic.com
