2019 ABSA Cape Epic Experience

The Lot Info
The Lot Summary
The Absa Cape Epic is an annual mountain bike stage race held in the Western Cape. It has been accredited as hors categorie (a French term used in stage bicycle races to designate a climb that is beyond categorization) by the Union Cycliste Internationale. First staged in 2004, the race typically covers more than 700 kilometres, and lasts eight days.

The winning bidder for this lot will get to experience premium all-day hospitality at the Grand Finale of this iconic race, overlooking the lush polo fields and finish straight where the world’s top athletes battle it out to be first across the finish line after 8 days of untamed African mountain biking. Exclusive ‘backstage’ access to the awards ceremony area where you and a partner will have the opportunity to rub shoulders with the category winners and get a limited-edition signed yellow jersey. Throw in a Heli flip for two offering a rare bird’s eye view of the world’s premier
mountain bike race and the beautiful Paarl/Franschhoek Valley.

For the truly adventurous, you also have an opportunity to join in a ride with the exclusive Epic Trippers group in Stellenbosch on Saturday, 23 March to get a taste of the action (optional).
