2020 ROUTE

8 days. 647 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 2020 Absa Cape Epic route. Wild and untamed. The pinnacle of mountain bike stage racing. The Race That Measures All.

From the iconic slopes of Table Mountain National Park to the luxury of Val de Vie Estate, the route for the seventeenth edition will challenge all and reward those who have come prepared with proven partnerships, technical skills, fitness and mental fortitude. Only the truly worthy will see their names etched into the Book of Legend.

THE CAUSE

The Cape Epic provides a great opportunity to raise funds for a charity that the team has been involved with for a number or years. The Alta Du Toit aftercare centre cares for physically and mentally disabled adults who often don’t have any family to look after them. It is a privilege for Francois and Niel to be able to partake in a premium endurance event and raise funds for people that embark daily on their own endurance event, just to get basic tasks done. The team will approach their families, friends, colleagues and businesses that they deal with daily to pledge assistance to the cause by sponsoring them per Km, event completed or upfront donations. Alta Du Toit is a registered NGO and will be able to supply any company with a section 18 certificate for tax deduction benefit.
