By now you’ve heard about the Absa Cape Epic, right? Its reputation as the world’s premier mountain bike race means that it’s vitally important for race organisers to monitor riders at all times. For this reason, the team at Tracker has been entrusted with the tracking of all 1,250 riders spanning across 625 teams over the entire 8-day event using mobile tracking devices.

So once again, we’ve taken the Absa Cape Epic online with Ride Epic 2. This platform gives you the opportunity to play the Ride Epic 2 game and track your favourite riders at the event.

From 09 to 30 March 2015, the Ride Epic 2 game will challenge you to navigate through a fresh, new online course, collecting points and avoiding obstacles. Each round played will add to your total score, allowing you to climb up the leaderboard and claim overall victory.

And the prize?

With the help of our sponsors, we’re offering the winner of Ride Epic 2 a grand prize including R25 000 courtesy of Tracker, a Fuji Tahoe 1.3D 2015 edition Mountain Bike from Cycle Lab worth R15 000, and a 2 night stay for 2 people at the Meerendal Wine Estate Boutique Hotel, courtesy of Meerendal Wines. We’re also giving away incredible daily prizes sponsored by Go-Pro, Hansgrohe, Oakley, Execujet and Tracker Ride Free.

In the midst of all the gaming action, you can still follow your favourite Absa Cape Epic Riders from 15 to 22 March 2015, with live rider tracking from Tracker. By simply entering their name, you’ll be able to find the exact location of any registered rider throughout the grueling 8-day event.

Already, the Ride Epic site has had over 30 000 visitors, with some determined people playing the game over 600 times! We’ve given away a heap of prizes and there’s still more to come.
