The 2016 Absa Cape Epic is set to take place on 13 - 20 March in Cape Town and for the first time founder of Cape Epic Kevin Vermaak will be taking part in the race.
The Epic draws professional mountain bikers from all over the world to compete in the world’s premier mountain bike event.
CapeTalk’s John Maytham spoke to Vermaak about his state of readiness and what encouraged him to ride.
Listen to the full conversation on The John Maytham Show:
Last year I was walking around and I thought there isn’t much for me to do now, I mean the team has been built to the point where it is running very swiftly on its own … and I employed a PR so there is nothing for me to do now except to ride it— Kevin VErmaak, Founder of Cape Epic
I’ve been planning for it for the last six months or so...— Kevin VErmaak, Founder of Cape Epic
My goal for riding it’s just to enjoy it— Kevin VErmaak, Founder of Cape Epic
The single track trails will take riders form Meerendal Wine Estate to Tulbagh, Wellington, Stellenbosch and back to Meerendal Wine Estate in Durbanville in an eight-day ride.
