Rotocon once again joined its customer Rotolabel as a co-sponsor of Team Woolworths Rotolabel in the 15th edition of the Absa Cape Epic Race 2018. The demanding eight-day adventure through the Western Cape region in South Africa took place from 18-25 March.
The Absa Cape Epic is a premier mountain bike stage race held in the Western Cape, South Africa, and is the largest full-service mountain bike stage race in the world. Though it takes place across a breathtaking landscape, it is untamed; a race where anything can happen – from unpredictable weather changes to surprise encounters with disgruntled wildlife. Mountain bikers from around the world travel to South Africa to compete for the top spot at the race. Most of these riders have won medals on the international stage and are well recognised in mountain biking communities.
Representing Team Woolworths Rotolabel was Grant Watson (Rotolabel) and Brett Van Coller. It was a third completed Absa Cape Epic for both.
Michael Aengenvoort, owner of Rotocon commented, ‘We are pleased to once again co-sponsor Team Woolworths Rotolabel in the Absa Cape Epic Race 2018 and applaud Watson and Van Coller in successfully completing their third Epic, and in record time. It is truly an exciting race for South Africa and the world.’
‘Without great partners like Rotocon, an event of this magnitude would not be possible,’ said Watson.
Rotolabel was also a sponsor this month of the 4th annual Wine Label Design Awards convened by Winemag.co.za. The competition rewards the best design and packaging for bottled wine made in South Africa and judging criteria include originality of concept, execution, shelf appeal and effectiveness as a piece of communication.
