    I did the Cape Epic in 2010. I know lots of people who have done it a few times as well.

    I was living in South Africa when I did the race - I now live in California. Depending on where you live training through winter would be a challenge.

    For the preparation I trained specifically for the race for the 8 months prior to the race - I averaged around 8hrs/week for that period peaking at about 15hrs/week a month before the Epic. I tried to get in as many 3-day training blocks as I could manage but for the rest did a lot of indoor training during the week with long rides on the weekend. We finished comfortably in the middle of the pack and were never in danger of missing any cutoffs.

    I have the training plan I used if you are interested. Send me a private message.
