Epic Photo Competition: The Prologue

On each day of the Absa Cape Epic, the team of skilled photographers create spectacular images for us to enjoy. Bike Hub will be holding a competition to recognise their hard work and give you the chance to win a signed copy of your favourite photograph.


Take a look at the selection of photographs from the Absa Cape Epic Prologue and vote for your favourite to go into the finals.

In the fairness of voting, the photographers will remain anonymous until the voting period has closed at 9PM today.

I was really lucky to get a spot in the helicopter that followed the top teams. Even though I had to shoot over the shoulder of the video guy I found a gap to snipe through. Just at the moment when Olympic Champion Nino Schurter appeared and started accelerating on the climb. He kept the high pace and ended up on the 2nd place with his team mate Matthias Stirneman.

Nino looks like he's gone 10 rounds! Only 7 more days to go.
