The Grand Finale

The Grand Finale represents the culmination of an epic journey through the untamed. To celebrate this amazing feat of perseverance and courage, each rider will receive a Woolworths picnic hamper, bottle of Val de Vie wine and an Absa Cape Epic finisher medal. 

After eight brutal days in the saddle the Grand Finale can be a little overwhelming. To help you through the process and ensure you don’t miss out on any opportunities, here is a preview of what you can expect once you’ve crossed the finish line.

Getting back to Cape Town
If you’ve purchased a post-accommodation package remember to collect your luggage and bike bag from the Val de Vie bag truck. All bags must be checked-in at the coach transfer area before boarding and heading back to the Cape Town. 

Sport Taxi will also be on site for riders needing transport back to Cape Town. If you have pre-hired an Avis vehicle please collect it at the collection zone in Val de Vie Estate before 16:00.
