Cape Epic 2020 – EF Gone Racing


The Cape Epic is the world’s toughest mountain bike race. It pits participants against eight days of relentlessly rough South African terrain, with almost constant climbing and descending, and searing temperatures. There are no support cars and no mechanical assistance here. Racers compete in pairs, relying on their teammates, and sleeping beside them at organised camps between stages. To tackle the Cape Epic, you’d better be more than just teammates but firm friends as well.

In Lachlan Morton and Alex Howes, EF Pro Cycling had a duo dialled into the demands of mountain biking, and the scene was set for another alternative calendar escapade. But then the news broke…

In this episode of Gone Racing, we bring you the story of the race that never was…

    Phenomenal as usual.

    Very interesting that Alex and Lachlan weren't too broken up about the cancellation. I guess when it's a job it's easier to detach from it?

    Looking forward to the salvaging of the alt calendar. I'll be here to watch.

    Great video. Was looking forward to EF doing the epic. Did my first Epic in 2010 and after seeing you plans to race, I was so excited to see it from your perspective. Do it next year – there is a Good reason why the race is called “Epic”

  28. Hector Cortes says

    Great inspirational videos top job guys

    Alex and Lachlan are fantastic examples in the Pro Peloton. Love cheering for these guys ?

  32. Evan Segimoto says

    Would love to see these guys compete at the Downieville Classic!!

  33. Braŭljo says

    What are those hydration packs called?

  34. Bill in Houston says

    Interesting watching these guys look ahead to retirement at a young age. Our job, if we have jobs we enjoy, is so much of us. When you leave that, what do you do? And you see it in the eyes of these guys who are at the end, and you hope that they don't end up on drugs or doing something self-destructive. They both have so much energy and so much left to give that you hope they find an outlet for it.
