Cape Epic 2020: A Dream On Hold

Cape Epic 2020: A Dream On Hold

  

Watch the story of Cannondale Factory Racing’s unrequited love for Absa Cape Epic.

The pinnacle of stage racing in mountain biking is the Absa Cape Epic, a grueling seven-day affair in the Western Cape of South Africa. This year’s cross-country race route was all set to traverse roughly 700 kilometers with 15,000 meters of vertical ascent, over some of the most unforgiving trails complemented with unimaginable scenery around every single bend.

Cannondale Factory Racing teammates Henrique Avancini and Manul Fumic were ready to take on their fifth attempt for the top step in the world’s most difficult mountain bike race. However, as fate would have it, Cape Epic was pulled at the 11th hour due to Covid-19, and their dream had to be put on hold for another year. Watch our team’s journey here as they aim for racing glory during unprecedented times.
