Cape Town - The memory of Burry Stander will be the dominant theme of this year's Absa Cape Epic as "The Untamed African MTB Race" celebrates its 10th anniversary.

According to race organisers and Friday's Cape Times, Stander's wife, Cherise, is considering taking part in the event from March 17-24 with Burry's father, Charles.

Cherise is a former South African champion cyclist and won the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour in 2008 and in 2011.

Burry's two brothers are also rumoured to be considering taking part in the race.

Burry was tragically killed after being hit by a minibus taxi while out training near Shelly Point in KwaZulu-Natal earlier this month.
