Dr Evil has created routes that are less than 80 kilometers per day that cater for the NORMAL and ELITE rider. Three days of world class mountain bike racing in one of the most breathtaking locations on the Garden Route. The Pennypinchers Dr. Evil Classic takes place from 18th – 20th September 2014. The sleepy town of Wittedrift becomes home to the Race Village.
DR EVIL is presently working on the Absa Cape Epic routes. The 2014 Dr Evil route maps / profiles and information will be posted on to the site in the near future. The route will be a tweaked version of the 2013 event. The base for the event will remain in Wittedrift just outside of Plettenberg Bay and the final day will be on Saturday 20th September. The Pennypinchers Die Burger Lions Karoo to Coast Mountain Bike Challenge is A SEPARATE EVENT that takes place on Sunday 21st September.
Pennypinchers Dr Evil Classic riders will be encouraged to ride the Lions Karoo to Coast and there will be a shuttle available from Wittedrift to Uniondale via Knysna on Saturday 20th September after the FINISH of the Dr Evil Classic. Riders who enter the Dr Evil Classic will receive a preferential start in the Pennypinchers Die Burger Lions Karoo to Coast Mountain Bike Challenge. Dr Evil also creates an easier Dr Evil day three so that riders “have legs” in order to enjoy the Lions Karoo to Coast on the Sunday.

ABOUT THE ROUTE
Contrary to the name – the Dr Evil Classic is aimed at “normal FUN” riders as well as hard core athletes. The three days will all be under 80 kilometres in distance. Leon Evans will create routes that are interesting, scenic and will test those who set out with the intention of racing the event. If you want to enjoy the ride at your own pace will have plenty of time to finish the event and an opportunity to enjoy world class routes created by the route cutter for the Absa Cape Epic.
