Cape Epic sandy rocky terrain climbing up to Oak Valley
Annika we made some stupid mistakes today, we went too hard at the beginning.
Anna today was a difficult stage with all the sand, i am happy it went well cause of the technical terrain. I am happy with another podium finish.
Ariane – Annika and Anna are tactically very smart, they let us do the work on the long flat stages. We super happy with 2nd places again and the bigger gap to 3rd.
Maja I like the sand and the single track was awesome, what i did not like was the flat cause we had to do all the work. We work perfectly together, we know our strategy.
Candice a tactical day, we missed a move which made us work hard to chase back. A hard day, Epic makes you work for everything, a lot of climbing. Its incredible being the only South African on the podium.
Adelheid It was a hard day, with lots of flat roads and climbing, the pace was very high.
All smiles and high fives in another fast day of racing Cape Epic style.
