Swanepoel and Beukes take the win in De Rust

They’ve been working hard from the very first pedal stroke on Sunday to make their mark on the 2012 Bridge Cape Pioneer Trek mountain bike stage race and on Wednesday, their relentless efforts paid off when Ben Melt Swanepoel and Matthys Beukes (Cango MTB.com) captured the win on stage 3. They weren’t the only new winners though, as a number of new faces graced the top of the podium in various categories following a drama-filled day’s racing.
