Cape Epic GRAND FINALE (Stage 7)

Before they could dream of champagne and celebrations, there was the small matter of eighty-five kilometres of racing ahead of them. Annie Last and Mariske Strauss had a second place in General Classification to defend, as well as a chance to take another stage win.

Cape Epic Stage 6

The Hansgrohe – Cadence Nutrition pair set out more to defend their third place in General Classification than to push for a stage result, however they took their opportunity when it presented itself. Having lost her legs yesterday, Mariske was back firing on all cylinders today, and the smile was bigger than ever!

Cape Epic Stage 5

Stage racing brings so many sensations, emotions and daily differences. Whilst yesterday brought Hansgrohe – Cadence Nutrition their best result yet, today was a suffer fest. What makes Annie Last and Mariske Strauss such incredible athletes, is that on a day when things go badly, they still race to fifth place on the stage and retain their third place in General Classification.

Cape Epic Stage 3

Stage Three took the riders on a seventy-eight kilometre loop from Greyton, over some classic Cape Epic terrain and through another hot and dusty day. Four days into the Cape Epic and it could be reasonably expected that the will, and the ability, to race full gas would be wearing off.

Stage 3 of the Cape Epic is in the bag and Mariske Strauss & Annie Last powered through the stage to a 3rd place podium whilst retaining their 3rd place in the GC.

Cape Epic Stage 2

With extreme heat and high humidity forecast for the day, the Cape Epic team took the unprecedented decision to shorten the stage and have it finish at Water Point 2 at sixty-two kilometres. Still, a Cape Epic stage is always tough, with every day and every minute counting towards the final General Classification.
