Wednesday 21 October @ 4.30pm - Leeuwin Estate, Margaret River
Cape to Cape 2020 kicks off at the breathtaking Leeuwin Estate vineyard on Wednesday 21 October. Come along to the Welcome Event, register for your ride and grab your rider pack and watch the Elite pairs duke it out, time trail style.
The top 20 pairs (Male, Female and Mixed) take the battle to a 4.6km course starting and finishing right in front of the registration hub at Leeuwin Estate. Pairs score their time trial spot by invitation, based on their past results in epic series events, or by application to the race director.
As well as pride, there is cash and all important time credits on the line.
There will be food, stalls, plenty of wine and a fierce mtb battle. The first Elite pair hits the time trial course at 4.30pm on Wednesday 21 October.
So, come along, get registered, grab a bite to eat, a glass of wine and watch our elite pairs put on show.
*The time trial is open to 15-39 aged Pairs only (no masters riders or solo riders). Time credits apply to time trial pairs based on finish results. The time credit will be applied to the GC time post Stage 1. This doesn’t affect Stage 1 podium results, just GC.
Super Sox Saturday
Don't miss your opportunity to nab this years incredibly bright and daring BikeDr Dismantle charity socks!
You can purchase your Super Sox for $25 from the BikeDr crew at registration on Wednesday or at the event village at the start and finish of each stage. Just be sure to secure your pair before Saturday so you can wear them for Super Sox Saturday.
BikeDr has been the charity partner for the Cape to Cape since 2015, providing mechanical support and bike washing for riders. BikeDr and Dismantle are best friends, working together in a bunch of ways to create unique opportunities that benefit youth participants.
This year we have something a bit special - last year's fundraising efforts have allowed Dismantle to run two school holiday programs for at-risk young people in the South West, during the September school holidays. Program participants have been invited to work alongside BikeDr mechanics, helping them wash and lube the hundreds of bikes that come through after each stage. It's paid work, and likely to be each young person's first job ever, but while the work is only going to last a few days, each youth trainee will get assistance to build a work pack - which will have everything they need to be prepared for their next job application.
At the end of each day’s racing you’ll find heaps of riders and the crew kicking back for a feed, a frothy top and all the day’s banter you could ask for at Settlers Tavern.
Located on the main street of Margaret River, Rob and the team are long time supporters of Cape to Cape.
You will find specials just for riders each night – just show your rider wristband and they’ll be showing some of the day’s highlights on the screens. See you all there.
