URTA SLR LEAVES ITS MARK AT
THE CAPE EPIC 2022

If there's one event in the world that defines which MTBs are among the most reliable on the market, it's the Cape Epic, which ended yesterday, Sunday 27th March.
A total of 8 stages, 600 km, and a climb of over 17,000 metres put the materials, muscles, and nerves of the world's best teams to the test.

Urta SLR emerged from the dust of the breathtaking South African gravel roads, and with the two teams of the Wilier Triestina - Pirelli team left its mark on the sixth stage, taking two teams into the top 10 in the final general classification, the only factory team that succeeded in the feat.

The sixth stage was won by the duo Wout Alleman - Fabian Rabensteiner with his colleagues Daniel Geismayr and Cameron Orr who finished third. It should be noted that this was the first time ever that a duo of national champions (Alleman for Belgium and Rabensteiner for Italy) won a stage at the Cape Epic.

In the general classification, Geismayr - Orr finished 6th with Rabensteiner - Alleman right behind in 7th position.

A majestic performance that demonstrates the reliability of the technical setup of the team: the Urta SLR frame equipped with Urta Bar monocoque handlebars did not miss a beat, was always responsive and agile, and smooth under the power of the team's athletes and on the bumpy South African roads. The first-class frame with the Pirelli - Miche combination ensured extreme reliability. The 2.4" Scorpion XC RC and Miche K1 Team Edition rims made it possible to finish the Cape Epic 2022 without a single problem or puncture.

The Cape Epic cannot be won by technique alone, however: A heartfelt thank you from the Wilier Family to the team led by Marco Trentin who coordinated athletes, mechanics, logistics and all the resources needed for such an important effort.

The Wilier 7C Force team helped to consolidate the presence of Urta SLR with 3 teams. Johnny Cattaneo and Nicola Taffarel, Marco Rebagliati and Ole Hem and the couple Massimo Debertolis with Gilberto Simoni who - after a successful career on the road - decided to bring home another unforgettable experience, this time in MTB.
