Stories of Commitment: Changing the Race at Cape Epic 2022
with Liz Walker, Liv Racing Team Manager
Cape Epic is a notoriously challenging mountain bike stage race. It’s set in South Africa’s Western Cape, and takes athletes through valleys, mountain ranges, forests, and vineyards, often accompanied by extreme midday heat. In 2022, the race covered eight days, 647 kilometers, 17,250 meters of climbing, and – perhaps the most challenging aspect – the race must be started and completed in teams of two.
