Sauser and Knox speed to stage 2 win

By winning the second stage of the DCM Pioneer Trek on Tuesday, Max Knox (Ghost) and Christoph Sauser (Songo.info) proved that you can't keep a good team down. In what is undoubtedly one of the tour's toughest stages, they managed to ride away from the rest of the riders with a display of almost faultless mountain biking. Their winning time for the stage (from Calitzdorp to Riversdale) was 5 hours, 23 minutes and 25 seconds.
