Bart Brentjens and Jelmer Pietersma of Trek-Brentjens attained their dream of a stage win at this year's Cape Epic as they sprinted to victory on stage 2 of the South African event. The duo took a narrow victory over Karl Platt and Stefan Sahm of the Bulls 1 Team, with South Africa’s Kevin Evans and Alban Lakata of the MTN Qhubeka Topeak Ergon team following closely behind in the first sprint finish of this year’s event.

Monday's Stage 2 took riders on a 90 kilometre out-and-back course from Ceres, which included 1625 metres of climbing. Perceived by many as the single-track stage of the race, the landscape was vastly contrasting – riders crossed farmlands, descended rocky scrub and navigated forest paths throughout the day. The route took the shape of a cloverleaf, with Water Points 2 and 3 both at the Eselfontein Farmhouse. The narrow, steep and rocky climbs split the race apart, with tough climbs (the biggest being Dead Man Walking in the second loop) a fair payment for the sweeping descent. Riders also had to be careful with rocks hiding around the treacherous bends. This was followed by more forest single-track offering temporary relief, but the last 10km, traversing farm paths, proved to be hard work. Due to the narrow trails, the organisers arranged a staggered start for today’s Stage 2, spreading the field out over an hour – seven groups started at ten-minute intervals from 7a.m. until 8 a.m.

Trek-Brentjens hit their straps around Ceres


Bart Brentjens and Jelmer Pietersma of Trek-Brentjens were the first to cross the finish line of Stage 2, putting them in third position overall (8:52:18). They were followed by the German Bulls 1 team Karl Platt and Stefan Sahm, who are now in second place overall (8:48:16). In third place were Kevin Evans and Alban Lakata of the MTN Qhubeka Topeak Ergon team, who are still in the overall lead by 4 minutes and 23 seconds (overall time - 8:43:53). The Songo-Specialized by DCM team of Christoph Sauser and Burry Stander finished in 14th place today (4:23:43) and are in ninth place overall (9:03:00).

“We were initially behind, but managed to catch up with the leading riders," said Trek-Brentjens' Jelmer Pietersma. "We’re not very fond of the climbs, but caught up on the descents. Schurter and Vogel as well as the Flückiger brothers were a few minutes in the lead, but at the second water point we heard the Flückigers had some problems – I believe they broke a chain – and at this point we realised we were riding for victory. Both Bart and I felt quite strong today and when we only had a few hundred meters to go, we knew we could win.”

“Today was really great with lots of single-track, but fast and small climbs all the way,” added Brentjens. “The Flückiger brothers were unlucky as was Schurter and Vogel. This year’s race has some really strong contenders. As it is, the Cape Epic is a hard race and very different to any other events – one needs to use a different race tactic. It’s push, push, push all the way – and today’s stage was hard as you had to concentrate all the time and stay focussed. There were also some annoying sandy sections towards the end.”

Asked what his hopes of a second stage win were, Brentjens said, “The stages count together, and one gets more tired as the race goes along. At least today we finished early and can take some time to relax.”

Second-placed Bulls Team rider, Stefan Sahm, said he felt better during this stage than yesterday. “Today was okay. The climbs and flat sections were better and there were some nice single-track. In a way we were unlucky today as we thought the Flückiger brothers were ahead of us and didn’t realise we were fighting for first place. If we knew, we definitely would’ve pushed more. But hey, Karl always gets stronger towards the end; we have a lot of patience and can wait.”

Sahm's teammate, Karl Platt, was particularly confident of what lays ahead for their combination. “Today was a nice stage with lots of awesome singe-track," he said. "At the beginning of the stage, the sun shone right into our faces which made it a bit tricky as you couldn’t see the stones, only dust. We’re feeling really strong and although we finished in second place, we’ll take the jersey in the end.”

Alban Lakata, of the MTN Qhubeka Topeak Ergon team, described their tough day: “Unfortunately we had some bad luck at the beginning as we had a puncture. I damaged my rear wheel and had to change it, but managed to catch up with the leading group. The Flückiger brothers attacked in one of the single-track sections but also had some bad luck, as did the Bulls Team. The other Bulls team helped them out with a front wheel, as did our second team by assisting us when I had a puncture. It’s really good to be able to get support from your teammates. It was a tough day and also very hot. The Absa Cape Epic is always a hard race as you have to look where you’re riding and your nutrition is really important.”

Steyn-Kotze and Kraft carve out another win

The first ladies to the finish of Stage 2 were Hannele Steyn-Kotze and Ivonne Kraft (Team Sludge Ladies), who completed the course in a time of 5:16:10 (also first overall at 11:04:05). They were again followed by Kristine and Anna-Sofie Noergaard (Team Rothaus-CUBE) in a time of 5:22:31 who remain in second position overall (11:15:19). Giuliana Vitali and Tamara Horn (Team bike2help.ch – Big Tree) finished in a time of 5:39.01,5, placing them in third position overall (11:53:34).

“Today was very hot and tough, but still fun. I’ve just come from Germany, where it’s still winter and cold," said Kraft afterwards. "The African terrain was very rough and it was definitely one of the most technical stages of the race, which both Hannele and I like a lot. We’re very satisfied with the way the race is going for us. I used to ride this race in the Mixed category and always played the role of the weaker member of the team. I therefore had to dig very deep to stay on the wheel of the man I was riding with. Riding in die Ladies category this year for the first time has changed my role completely – now I’m the stronger one and need to watch out for Hannele and support her whenever I can. If my heart rate is low enough, I push her so that the physical burden is shared. I’m drawing from my experience as the weaker link in the Mixed team.”

Cordes and Speedy speedy on stage two

Yolande Speedy and Paul Cordes (MTN Business Qhubeka) finished in first place today in a time of 4:44:23. They are now placed second (overall) in their category (10:07:24). They were followed by yesterday’s category winners Bärti Bucher and Esther Süss (Wheeler – BIXS) in a time of 4:48:40, however Bucher and Süss retained the first place overall (10:03.38,2). Nico Pfitzenmaier and Sally Bigham of the Adidas Big Tree team again finished in third place (4:59:41) and remain in the same position overall (10:22:45).

According to Paul Cordes of the MTN Business Qhubeka team, “Today’s race was really enjoyable. There were lots more single-track which we liked. We made a few mistakes yesterday which cost us our lead and had to make amends today. We were more conservative and picked it up in the end.”

Cyclelab pick up where they left off on stage one

Cyclelab’s Shan Wilson and Andrew Mclean again took top honours in Stage 2 (4:40:49) to maintain their overall lead in the masters category (9:51:32). They were followed by the Big Tree Masters Team Corrie Muller and Robert Sim (5:02:03), who are now in third place overall (11:35:23). Adrian Enthoven and Gary Marescia (Cycle Lab Jag Foundation) finished in third place today in 5:05:26 and are placed second overall (10:41:28).

“Today was tough but good," said Wilson. "We extended our lead and are very happy with the result. We only had one flat at the beginning of the stage – but nothing major. The single-track made the race more technical, so one had to concentrate all the time.”
