On each day of the Absa Cape Epic, the team of skilled photographers create spectacular images for us to enjoy. Bike Hub will be holding a competition to recognise their hard work and give you the chance to win a signed copy of your favourite photograph.
Take a look at the selection of photographs from the Absa Cape Epic Prologue and vote for your favourite to go into the finals.
In the fairness of voting, the photographers will remain anonymous until the voting period has closed at 9PM today.

Five-time Cape Epic winner, Karl Platt has his sights set on another victory with partner Urs Huber for Team Bulls. A little off the winning pace today but it's still a long week ahead!

I was really lucky to get a spot in the helicopter that followed the top teams. Even though I had to shoot over the shoulder of the video guy I found a gap to snipe through. Just at the moment when Olympic Champion Nino Schurter appeared and started accelerating on the climb. He kept the high pace and ended up on the 2nd place with his team mate Matthias Stirneman.

How it works
- Every day each photographer will submit their favourite shot with a short note explaining its context.
- Each day’s winning photograph will go through to the “finals” on Wednesday, March 29.
- You will then get an opportunity to vote for the overall winner, who will get a R10 000 prize.
- The result will be announced on Monday, April 3, and voters who chose the winning picture will go into a lucky draw for a signed and framed version of the photograph.
