The Absa Cape Epic is an eight-day stage race, and it's the most televised mountain bike race in the world. The race must be completed by both members of a two-person team, with only 680 teams allowed to ride each year. Every event follows a different route, leading aspiring amateur and professional mountain bikers from around the world through roughly 700 untamed kilometres of unspoilt scenery, and up more than 17,000 metres of vertical ascent. This year's event is coming up on the 20th of March and on this edition of Health Matters, we speak to Candice Lill - who has completed 4 previous Cape Epic races, as well as Matt Beers - who has 5 events under his belt, winning the 2021 edition along with his partner.
