Startup Grind Cape Town Hosts Kevin Vermaak (Cape Epic & Snow Epic)


The last Startup Grind Cape Town of the year promises to be an entertaining one as they host Kevin Vermaak of the Cape Epic on the 16th of November at the TownHouse Hotel in Cape Town.

Kevin is a UCT electrical engineer graduate and fellow Capetonian who founded the Cape Epic, an annual mountain bike stage race. In the 2000s Kevin was working in London in IT and took part in many mountain biking events across the world. In 2002 he took part in La Ruta de los Conquistadores in Costa Rica, where his idea for the Cape Epic was conceived. In 2004 Kevin’s vision to create the world’s premier mountain bike event and to set a new benchmark for the sport was created. It is now the most televised mountain bike stage race in the world.
