The Cape Epic 2018 will take riders through 658 km of South Africa’s Western Cape countryside and up a lot of hills: the accumulated vertical gain will be 13,530 m. The race attracts professional and serious amateur entrants from across the planet that participate in two-person teams. From the Prologue on the iconic Table Mountain, the 2018 Cape Epic will visit Robertson, Worcester and Wellington, and finish at the Val de Vie Estate. The Cape Epic is the most televised mountain bike stage race in the world and the only 8-day mountain bike stage race classed as hors catégorie by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI). This official UCI status makes it a highlight on the professional racer’s calendar.
