Finishing an Epic Series Legend Race is considered a remarkable achievement.

Completing three is truly special.


Epic Series Races around the world


There are three Epic Series Legend Races: the Swiss Epic, The Pioneer and the pinnacle of the Epic Series – the Absa Cape Epic.

At the awards ceremony at The Pioneer on the 30th of November 2018, six more athletes were awarded the coveted Epic Legend Medal, having just completed all three of these full-length, week-long races. Joining Haley van Leeuwen (NZL) and Minter Barnard (RSA) in the Epic Legend Hall of Fame are Tim Hammond (RSA), Peter Felber (SWI), David Wright (RSA), Enrico Theuns (NED), Chak Shing Cheng (HKG) and Alan Gordon (RSA). Haley, Tim and Chak Shing also became the first riders ever to complete all three in one year.

We honour these adventurous, determined and skilled riders. They can all consider themselves exceptional athletes – complete mountain bikers.
