Have you (or a friend) overcome adversity in the saddle? Are you dead-set on riding the Absa Cape Epic in 2018? We’ve got just the competition for you!
The Absa Cape Epic has earned its rightful place as one of the most exhilarating and life-changing mountain-bike races in the world. Tales of conquest and “near-death” experiences, each wilder than the one before, marks the general atmosphere within the race village year after year for many amateur and professional riders.
Many come from near and far to witness this majestic race, either to cheer their significant others on or as a support team offering mechanical or personal assistance – all with the same goal: to help the determined riders conquer any obstacles they might encounter and get them all the way to the Grand Finale.
Because we know that cyclists meet with hardship, both on and off Epic soil, we want to hear your stories and salute you!
Share your #ConquerAsOne moments with us, and you could WIN with Absa!
Did you overcome punctures, mud, dust, injuries, the cut-off gun – anything goes. We want to see it! And note, anyone that is involved – be it a partner, supporter, logistics person, crew – anyone that sees or is involved with a #ConquerAsOne moment can enter.
