For the first time in three years, the Absa Cape Epic returns to the western reaches of South Africa's Cape Peninsula. The route takes in the ultra-technical and often hostile trails of Tulbagh and Ceres, before snaking its way through the vineyards of Wellington and finally on to Stellenbosh over the eight-day, seven-stage race, covering 647km and 15500m of vertical ascent in the process. 

Incidentally, the last time the route passed through this region back in 2016, it also traversed 647km and took in 14950m.
