Message from the Premier

The Absa Cape Epic is upon us once again. It brings mountain bikers from across the country and the world to our beautiful province. The 2023 edition of the event comes at a crucial time as we emerge from a difficult couple of years under Covid-19. This event - and cycling in general - should symbolise our newfound freedom as we pedal our way back to recovery.

The Absa Cape Epic is an important part of the Western Cape’s sporting calendar. It contributes to the local economy and job creation and offers competitors a tour – albeit a gruelling one – of our province’s natural assets. Spectators are also promised a cycling spectacle.

I wish all those taking part good luck.
