Cape Epic 2014

Christoph Sauser will return to defend his past four wins at the Cape Epic mountain bike stage race in South Africa, but this year, he'll be without past partners including the late Burry Stander and the injured Jaroslav Kulhavy.

Sauser will team up with former road racer Frantisek Rabon, and the duo will take on a slew of top endurance talent in the biggest mountain bike stage race of the year.

Many riders call the Cape Epic the "Tour de France" of mountain biking.
