With the Grand Finale of the 2022 Absa Cape Epic kicking off an hour later, there will be a festive atmosphere in the race village. Fans are encouraged to make their way straight to Val de Vie to ensure the riders receive the world-class reception their herculean efforts over the last eight days deserve. Arrive early to secure a prime seat on the pavilions. Stroll through the food and Absa Cape Epic partner stalls. There most certainly will be no shortage of excitement and emotion on the lawns of Val de Vie.

Spectator Point 1: Muratie

Though fans are encouraged to head straight to Val de Vie, there are two spectator points on the Trail to Val de Vie, from where one can watch the action unfold, trail-side, for a final time. Muratie is the first of the two and provides fans with an awesome chance to watch teams descend the serpentine singletrack. Muratie's restaurant will be open for coffee and food.

Spectator Point 2: Vrede en Lust

The final spectator point of the 2022 Absa Cape Epic is located just 8 kilometres from the final finish line, at Val de Vie. If you are to make it to the Grand Finale on time to see your team finish, you cannot afford to dally at Vrede en Lust for too long. Which is a pity as the coffee shop is amazing and worth returning to during a future ride or trip to the winelands.
