Cape Epic Prologue 2012 – Flickr pic of the day
Says Clare, "I went to watch the ABSA Cape Epic Prologue today. The Cape Epic is an annual mountain bike race that takes place around Cape Town. It is a team event with teams of two. The team members have to stay together at all times and are only ever allowed a two minute gap between themselves.
This year the race lasts eight days and covers 781km and includes 16 300m of climbing. It is really tough."
"This is one of the competitors climbing the last hill known at the Stairway to Heaven. All I can say is that I was happy to be spectating and not participating – it looked really tough!"
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
