ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
This is another special edition of The Last Aid Station. Mark brings you the most in-depth Absa Cape Epic coverage you’ll hear anywhere. Listen in as he rolls through the action and results of this year’s 2016 Absa Cape Epic in South Africa.
About the Absa Cape Epic – from the website: “The Absa Cape Epic must be completed by both members of a two-person team. The route changes every year, leading aspiring amateur and professional mountain bikers from around the world through roughly 800km of unspoilt scenery and 15 000m of accumulated climbing, over some of the most magnificent mountain passes in South Africa.
The Absa Cape Epic is the most televised mountain bike stage race in the world and the only eight-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. The Absa Cape Epic also attracts aspiring amateur riders wanting to test themselves against the best. It is a full-service race, meaning that everything is taken care of from the start – all riders need to think about is riding.”
