Yesterday (Wednesday, 19 October) Christoph Sauser (Songo.info), Switzerland’s world champion in the mountain biking marathon, set a personal record when he and his partner, Max Knox (Ghost), won the third stage of the DCM Cape Pioneer Trek. David George and Kevin Evans from Team 360Life remain in Yellow.
By winning the second stage of the DCM Pioneer Trek yesterday (Tuesday, 18 October), Max Knox (Ghost) and Christoph Sauser (Songo.info) proved that you can’t keep a good team down. Kevin Evans and David George from Team 360 Life held onto the leaders jersey after a dominant stage 1 victory.
The winning time for the stage (from Calitzdorp to Riversdale) was 5 hours 23 minutes and 25 seconds.
Ever mountain biker who ever wondered what it would be like to be a true pioneer should not miss out competing DCM Cape Pioneer Trek.
It is a six-day mountain bike tour that will take place in and around the Little Karoo from 17 to 22 October. Stage details below.
This is what Kevin Evans (360Life) said last year after he had finished the first stage of the DCM Cape Pioneer Trek.
But, as the saying goes ‘never say never’. Much can change in a short period of time and that is exactly what happened.
Like a moth not being able to resist circling a bright light or a woman not being able to resist eating chocolates, Christoph Sauser (Specialized) has a compulsion to participate in the DCM Cape Pioneer Trek in the Klein Karoo.
Being the current world marathon mountain-bike champion, Sauser could well have taken a well-deserved break from cycling in October, but that will not be the case.
During the sixth stage of the DCM Cape Pioneer Trek, on the last day of his career as a professional mountain biker, Silvio Bundi from Switzerland learned an important lesson.
If you want to end your career as a professional mountain biker on a high note, do not tease one of your main rivals because they have not been able to win a stage. You might just be the one who end up finishing second.
During a day where mountain bikers learned the hard way that sheep are certainly no pushover when it comes to sharing a dirt road it was Brandon Stewart and Jacques Janse van Rensburg (DCM) who had the strongest legs that enabled them to win the fifth stage of the DCM Cape Pioneer Trek in the Klein Karoo.
Max Knox and Thomas Zahnd ensured that Ian van der Walt, owner of DCM, is a more than proud event-sponsor when they completed a hat trick of victories by also winning the fourth stage of the DCM Cape Pioneer Trek.
It is beginning to look more and more like the DCM-team will also win overall.
