Connecting an iconic race to the world under the NTT DATA brand

The Absa Cape Epic is a multistage mountain-bike race like no other. It epitomizes the unyielding spirit of human endurance and our relentless pursuit of excellence. This year, we will once again connect the race to the world, showcasing our capabilities under the NTT DATA brand for the first time. This marks a significant transition from our proud partnership under the Dimension Data brand for the past nine years. Through our sponsorships, we continue to invest in upcoming talent.

Supporting grassroots development

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. Ongezo Mini and Yomelela Mfazwe joined the team in 2023. They have already taken part in quite a few warm up races in 2023 and our main goal is to be competitive at the Wines2Whales 2023. They attempted the Absa Cape Epic in 2023 but did not manage to complete a very challenging race, due to the weather condition
