Fair Cape, South Africa- Fair Cape is a perfect speed hill, smooth tar, open wheat fields surrounding the road and no interruptions to break the wind. Fair Cape comes alive with a good Southeast or Southwest wind and riders can push their speed limits. With clear skies and a moderate SW wind forecast for day 2, riders were super amped to take advantage of the conditions.
