𝗖𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗱 - 𝗖𝗮𝗽𝗲 𝗘𝗽𝗶𝗰 𝟭𝟱 – 𝟮𝟮 𝗠𝗮𝗿𝗰𝗵 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟬
Last weekend was supposed to be the start of the mammoth week-long mountain bike event around the Western Cape – The Cape Epic. At the 11th hours before the event, Cape Epic organizers sent out a statement informing their cancelation of the event due to the COVID-19. This decision was carefully considered prior to the cancelation of the event as the event organizers work closely with health officials and disaster management. Despite the very low numbers of infection in the Western Cape, the number of riders and fans that were flying in for the event was simply what made it a high-risk event.
Most fans and contestants including some of our own guests who were also meant to be participating in the race were sorely disappointed. However, the decision taken was necessary as the safety and health of everyone is of paramount importance!!!
