Absa Cape Epic Stage Race


2021 Absa Cape Epic Podcast Ride Series

The Absa Cape Epic is a race of a thousand untold stories. These tales come from hundreds of competitors from all over the globe. And these hardcore mountain bikers are united by days and days of racing across the long, dry and dusty course in South Africa. 

Completing the Absa Cape Epic is more than making it across the finish line eight days in a row as part of a two-person team. It’s more than covering 655km // 407mi or climbing and descending 15,550m // 51,017’. Completing the Absa Cape Epic is about juggling multiple skills for more than a week.

It’s about going beyond your limits.

Riders need to race smart, conserve energy, maintain their bikes, and ride as fast as possible, without overdoing it. Since it’s a two-person race, teamwork is paramount.  

The Podcast:

Join Payson McElveen, host of the Adventure Stache Podcast, and Zwift! Ride with some of the best Absa Cape Epic riders while listening to their stories of victory, upset, and surprise. 

Payson, as you probably know, is no slouch. The 2x Marathon National Champion has raced in far off places like Argentina and Mongolia. And when he turns up at his hometown training race in Durango, Colorado, he often goes head to head with racing legends like Ned Overend, Todd Wells, and Sepp Kuss. That’s a long way of saying he has as many stories as he has cans of Red Bull in his garage.
