Cape Epic 2017

The year is young but the plans are already well underway for another epic African adventure…

 

We are very excited to announce that once again OMX Pro Team will race eight days through South Africa’s Western Cape in the infamous Cape Epic.

 

It is a race that has captured our hearts and drawn us in, and after great success in 2015 and 2016 we are ready to push further and make an even bigger impact on one of the World’s biggest races in 2017.

One of the proudest moments of OMX…ever! Fabian Giger and Martin Gujan in the leader’s jerseys after winning the prologue in 2015.

Racing the Cape Epic puts you amongst the buzz of the World’s cycling media and in an atmosphere that is simply unparalleled: the early morning hype as the helicopters take off and the cameras roll and the next chapter of the race unfolds…

It is a real privilege to be a part of this race and the stories and memories that it creates.

 

This year the riders will cover 691 kilometres and 15400 metres of vertical ascent, starting in Meerendal on 19th March and finishing in Val di Vie on 26th March.

 

It will be, as ever, a battle of physical power and endurance, mental steel, preparation and dedication. It is an ultimate test of any athlete. We’ll make battle with our competitors, with the route, and with ourselves in a bid for glory.

It is brutal but it is beautiful, and that is why we return.

 

Much more will be revealed soon…
