How Epic was the Race?

It's always the hardest because they make it harder each year. This is the benchmark, the pinnacle of multi-day MTB for 2 person teams.

If you are serious about this format, you have not ridden till you ride the ABSA Cape Epic. Food;Organisation; Riding terrain; physical exertion; temperature, is all at max levels.

Currently the next best to this is not even in view.

Would you do the race again and why?

I am there next year again, would rather sell one of my organs than miss this event!
