The Absa Cape Epic is without question the most infamous and prestigious marathon race in the world. There were quite a few surprises this year. In addition to the somewhat atypical weather, it was above all the countless defects of the top teams that provided the extra dose of excitement. Above all, the sporting gesture on the part of Markus Kaufmann and Jochen Käß, in which they selflessly made their own wheels available to Robert Mennen and Kristian Hynek, will go down in the history books of the Cape Epic. We have summarized some of these moments here in a small photo special.
#20 Next year the twelfth edition of the Cape Epic will take place and again the riders will go to the utmost of their strength to secure the title of what is probably the most important Mtb marathon race.
