Asba Cape Epic MTB week - Club La Santa
25th January to 2nd February 2013
Come and join the only official European training camp for the magical and untamed African mountain bike race, the Absa Cape Epic. Every year in the end of March South Africa hosts a well known stage race held over 8 days of approximately 800km and 16.000m of climbing for amateurs and professionals from around the world
Lanzarote is the ideal location to train for such an adventurous and extreme event with similar road and track conditions and the same warm and sunny climate. This camp is not only for Absa Cape Epic (future) participants, but for all experienced mountain bike riders with a passion for stage racing (you should be able to ride 4-5 hours on the mountain bike daily).
We will have different lectures on stage race nutrition, “Epic experience”, Absa Cape Epic 2013 race/ practical information. The week will end with a dinner where companions can join in for the price of €26 for a 3 course menu and ½ bottle of wine.
