22 Mar Join in the Epic experience
The Cape Times Lourensford races on Sunday 1 April are a selection of one-day mountain bike and trail running races which coincide with the final leg of the Absa Cape Epic.
All mountain bike and trail running races have uniquely designed routes, separate from the Absa Cape Epic route, that cater for outdoor enthusiasts of all fitness levels. Whether you want to take in the scenery or relish taking on a challenge, there is a race just right for you.
The majority of the Cape Times Lourensford Vineyard Race participants will finish their race before the winners of the Epic are expected to arrive, so after completing the race, you can wind-down and help cheer in the Absa Cape Epic riders. Plan to stay for the bustling atmosphere of the Grand Finale at Lourensford Wine Estate, which includes a concert featuring Freshly Ground!
Participants are encouraged to bring their cameras, friends and family to be part of this magical day. http://www.vineyard-races.co.za/vr/
ABSA CAPE EPIC

The Absa Cape Epic takes place every year around the last week of March and the first week of April. The race is held over 8 days and includes a time-trial prologue. The route changes every year, and leads aspiring amateur and professional mountain bikers from around the world through approximately 800 kilometres of the unspoilt nature of the Western Cape and up approximately 15 000m of climbing over some of the most magnificent passes in South Africa. http://www.cape-epic.com/index.php
