Team RSAWEB and Crank presents a series of daily highlights videos from the 2010 ABSA Cape Epic. This is Stage 8: Oak Valley – Lourensford.
Jose Hermida and Rudi Van Houts (Multivan Merida 2) claim the win for the final stage in a fast paced race from Oak Valley to Lourensford. Following in second place were Emil Lindgren and Fabian Giger of team Rabobank-Giant Off Road. Christoph Sauser and Burry Stander of team Songo-Specialized by DCM came in third.
Despite the best efforts of the chasing teams, Karl Platt and Stefan Sahm maintain their 11 minute lead in the final stage, to win their 3rd Cape Epic as a team.
Team RSAWEB riders Nic and Simon finished 22nd in stage 8, and placed a very respectable 25th overall (out of 600 teams) – a personal best for both brothers. Team RSAWEB 2 and 3 riders Rob Gilmour, Mark Slingsby, Richard Tasker and Jeremy Shaw all finished strong on the final stage, bringing to a close a successful 2010 ABSA Cape Epic mission for the team. Congrats to all our team riders!
