Connecting an iconic race to the world

The annual eight-day Absa Cape Epic is the ultimate proving ground of human and machine. Unforgiving conditions make this multistage mountain-bike race a physical, mental and emotional challenge like no other. We support these brave cyclists by connecting the race to the world in a fast, reliable and data-rich manner. We also cosponsor a team, helping them develop their careers in this competitive sport, while NTT sponsors the Masters category, in which many former pro riders compete.

The power of sport

Inspired by the challenges faced by the riders, we are committed to driving sustainable change by giving back to our partners and society. We use the power of sport to educate, inspire and mobilize young people.

The next generation of champion riders

With the BMT Fairtree Academy, we sponsor the BMT Fairtree racing team, helping upcoming cyclists from disadvantaged backgrounds to train for and compete in the Absa Cape Epic.
