vitor and gamto take on epic

Just when you thought you had seen all the cycling you needed with the Cape Town Cycle Tour, it is time to check those spokes once again.

That’s right, the Absa Cape Epic will be upon us soon, from the 15-22 March. You will be able to see contenders from all over the world pedal it out for glory. This year, marks the 12th year of the race and will feature categories such as men’s, women’s, mixed, masters and grand masters.

Speaking of masters, Senhor Cabo will be there to root for two Portuguese contenders who will be falling in this category. They are Vitor Gamito from Lisbon and Jose Rosa.

Vitor is an exceptional cyclist and has won the Tour of Portugal in 2000 and Jose is an exceptional racer himself. There could not be a better team to represent Portugal.

So get on down to UCT and support our boys this Sunday!
