Nino Schurter is one of the most recognisable names in mountain biking as he’s won almost everything there is to win. In his last encounter with the Absa Cape Epic, he and Lars Forster took the fight to the field and ultimately dominated the racing, despite a mid-week mishap that saw them lose the yellow Leader Jerseys. 2019’s racing was as much a tactical encounter as it was a physical one and what may have been potentially race-winning strategies were employed by a number of teams. At the end of the day SCOTT-SRAM MTB-Racing claimed the overall victory by 7 minutes 36 seconds.

Join Payson McElveen, host of the Adventure Stache Podcast, and Zwift! Ride with some of the best Absa Cape Epic riders while listening to their stories of victory, upset, and surprise. 

Payson, as you probably know, is no slouch. The 2x Marathon National Champion has raced in far off places like Argentina and Mongolia. And when he turns up at his hometown training race in Durango, Colorado, he often goes head to head with racing legends like Ned Overend, Todd Wells, and Sepp Kuss. That’s a long way of saying he has as many stories as he has cans of Red Bull in his garage.
