UCT to host Absa Cape Epic Prologue for the first time

20 February 2015

The University of Cape Town will for the first time play host to the Absa Cape Epic Prologue on Sunday, 15 March 2015. This year's race will see 1 200 riders start and finish the prologue on UCT's sports fields. The route is only 20km, but the 600m of hard climbing on the slopes of Table Mountain will be a sure test for their endurance.

Since its beginning in 2004, the annual eight–day Absa Cape Epic has become the world's foremost mountain bike stage race, attracting the world's leading professional riders and amateurs keen to test their limits in the rugged Western Cape countryside.

In the photo are this year's firm favourites to win, Swiss rider Christoph Sauser (back) and his Czech partner Jaroslav Kulhavy from the Investec–Songo–Specialised team. The photo was taken at last year's prologue at Meerendal by Nick Muzik.
