THE MOUNTAIN

Short and oh-so-very sharp. From the imposing buildings of the University of Cape Town riders will be sent up the most vicious climbs of one of the Seven New Wonders of the World. Some may be left wondering about their legs after the first climb that has been given a name we dare not print in public, just 100m long with some sections ramping up to a 40% gradient. Table Mountain has one last punch for the riders, up to Dead Man’s Tree, before they find the masses of spectators who will cheer them on as they head on the loop back to the finish. One last challenge awaits, the eye-wateringly quick descent of Plum Pudding, the Land Rover Technical Terrain section.
