Team PSC and the ABSA Cape Epic Challenge

Epic Classic

With 14,550 vertical metres of climbing and no less than 707 kilometres long, the Absa Cape Epic challenge truly is an epic challenge.

The route changes every year and leads aspiring amateur and professional mountain bikers from around the world through the unspoilt nature of the Western Cape in the Republic of South Africa. It’s not for the less-than-serious rider and it was with some trepidation that two determined and passionate engineers submitted their entry.

Stephen Butler from PSC New Zealand and Willie de Beer from ABB South Africa entered with support of PSC Group. The sponsorship is a reflection of PSC’s commitment to its people and the relationships they forge with their clients. PSC also felt the high performance nature of the event reflected its overall philosophy to business. In particular, high performing people taking on tough challenges.
