Women's Prize Purse
In 2014 the Absa Cape Epic became the first major cycling event to match the Hansgrohe Women’s category prize purse to that of the men. That year the total amount set aside for the Hansgrohe Women’s category at the Untamed African Mountain Bike Race was R700 000 – the biggest for women in cycling and identical to their elite male counterparts. With other prizes on offer the total prize purse for all categories was R1 600 000.
The special awards, unique trophies, unmatched organisation, African experience and general prestige make the Absa Cape Epic the most sought after title in stage racing.
