No UCI MTB World Cup for Stellenbosch in 2019

The Absa Cape Epic recently announced it will not be hosting the opening leg of the UCI XCO World Cup Series again in 2019, but plans to present “bigger and better” versions in the following years.

Cape Epic managing director Michael Flinn said: “After our initial and highly successful event this year the UCI has requested that we sign a two-year commitment.

“We have decided to aim rather for the 2020 and 2021 events. That gives us time to secure the sort of financial backing we would require to host events of the standard that we demand of ourselves. In fact, our team is already working on new plans.”

He added that the Grandstand Management team, which organises the Absa Cape Epic, was busy preparing the 16th edition of the Untamed African MTB Race.

“And, of course, we are already busy with our planning and preparations for next year’s Absa Cape Epic,” Flinn said.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank the thousands of spectators who showed up for the 2018 World Cup event, while the overwhelming number of people who supported did so from afar, not to mention our incredible sponsors, crew, media and riders who put on an Epic show.”
