Last week I mentioned that the Absa Cape Epic, a massively difficult mountain bike stage-race, was underway in South Africa. After 8 days of racing, the event was won by the Topeak-Ergon Racing team out of Germany, which features Robert Mennen and Kristian Hynek as its riders. The video below was released post-race, to give us all an idea of just how challenging the event actually is. Considering the number of grown men who look like they are absolutely at the end of their rope in these clips, it must be a real sufferfest.
