ABSA Cape Epic - Day 3 Video Recap

21.10.2021See All Event Posts Follow Event

Andreas Seewald and his partner Martin Stošek powered today to an important stage win. The Canyon Northwave MTB pair remain in second overall, but they have cut the lead of NinetyOne-songo-Specialized’s Matt Beers and Jordan Sarrou down to 01.43. Samuele Porro and Fabian Rabensteiner (Trek-Pirelli) managed as the only team to stick with Seewald and Stošek on the blockbuster Fanties Pass, with all four riders racing towards the finish on the final, flattish last 10km. Urs Huber and Simon Schneller of BULLS were able to finish third on the day and the wearer of the yellow jersey, Beers and Sarrou took the fifth place.

Sina Frei and Laura Stigger (NinetyOne-songo-Specialized) also dominated Stage 3 of the Absa Cape Epic in Tulbagh today, continuing their commanding march towards overall glory. They finished the stage nearly four minutes ahead of their nearest rivals, Robyn de Groot and Ariane Lüthi (Salusmed), giving themselves a mammoth 11-minute lead in the women’s race general classification. The stage provided plenty of drama, with crashes and snapped chains occurring at high frequency.
