Epic Photo Competition: Stage 7

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 Stage 7 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.

Tar road is what we want to see the least at the Cape Epic. But the view to the other side of the mountain pass and the leading group chasing Nino Schurter in road racing style made me shoot this image.

While the last stage is all about the winning teams, I look for the emotion that comes after it’s all over. Here Mariske Strauss reflects on the last 8 days.

Sabine and Robyn snuck in behind a whole lot of other cyclists and pipped Annie and Mariske for the final stage win. They deserved it after their bad run of mechanicals and crashes!
