Following the successful hosting of a water and spectator point in 2017, the Creation team is pulling out all stops to welcome Absa Cape Epic riders and spectators to the estate again on 18 March during the first stage of the race. “To be part of this epic adventure is an opportunity we treasure and the excitement is already tangible here on the estate,” says Creation’s Carolyn Martin.
