Wellington wins at the Absa Cape Epic

Wednesday, 22 April 2015 15:47 Published in News & Events

There are many winners at the Absa Cape Epic, and not all of them on bicycles. 

Each year the race presents a Best Town Spirit award and the riders vote for the Best Stage Location. This year Wellington, home for the last two nights of the Absa Cape Epic, has won both these prestigious awards.

Stage Location Manager Marc Erasmus said the Town Spirit award had been based on footage from the event and discussions with riders, crew and media representatives.

“I want to congratulate the Drakenstein Municipality as well as Wellington Tourism, the Wine Route, Wellington Chamber of Commerce and CPUT for doing such an amazing job of promoting the race and getting the entire town involved and excited about it,” said Erasmus.
