And, on the seventh day, there was some small respite. This is the fun day of the 2018 Absa Cape Epic, but riders will still need to go up to earn the right to enjoy the downhills. So, before the 2km descent of the Rollercoaster, you will need to ride 2.5km of up. The Green Mamba climb is relentless, long and steep, but it comes with the reward of the Bain’s MTB Trails at Welvanpas. Fun times are to be had through the Handlebar Snatcher, Deadly White Climb and the Cheese Grater. There is just one more big climb at 58km, but the race village is not far away.

Land Rover Technical Terrain: Cheese Grater – a furiously fast descent into the most remote section of the Welvenpas valley. Hold on, the Land Rover Technical Terrain has claimed many a victim before.
