    …the eight-day, 707km stage race through the Western Cape mountains is likely to punish them all…the mountain bikers will ride as far as 140km in a day and will climb a cumulative total of 14550m into the sky over eight days.

    The Cape’s sharp and loose sandstone rocks will maul tyres. If the southeaster is not blowing a gale, midday temperatures are likely to soar into the 40s. If not, the riders can count on rain and cold.

    Looks mint.

    For some reason I didn’t think the kielder100 was enough so added on a few extra hours… http://www.killerkielder.co.uk 🙂

    The Cape Epic is a really well known race, Christophe Sauser and Burry Stander have done it a few times. La Ruta is meant to be tougher.

    ChristAlp is meant to be a harder one day event too.

    Not detracting from Kielder!
