Absa Cape Epic Prologue

Absa Cape Epic Prologue

For Starters

The Prologue route includes spectacular views of some world famous landmarks – across Table Bay to the iconic Table Mountain, with Robben Island nestled in the sparkling sea in the foreground. But riders on the 2017 Absa Cape Epic Prologue will not be afforded much opportunity to enjoy them: the best viewing point follows a lung-busting climb up Meerendal’s notorious Stairway to Heaven to the top of the Dorstberg and is followed by a trail that dips past a neighbouring quarry and on to adjacent farmlands.

All that hard work takes place in the opening sequences of the Prologue and is followed by some testing ups and downs on Hoogekraal’s highly regarded trails (with some more amazing views). Then it is back to Meerendal  via some steep vineyards and dairy fields, a burst of singletrack, and the riders’ opening taste of the 2017 Absa Cape Epic will be over
