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