Absa Cape Epic Stage 3

Monday, March 23, 2009
Felt Team 5th overall!

Stage 3 took the riders from Villiersdorp to Greyton, a 73km route with 1 976m of climbing.

All athletes needed to tackle the tracks towards Kaaimansgat where they climbed 900m in the first 20km. The water canal was at the 20km mark where the riders hold their ressources for a long ascent up a rugged 4x4 trail.

From 400m to 1000m altitude over 5km, a feeling like riding straight up a wall. No rider had the time to turn around to see 180-degree mountain vista.

The FELT Team did again a great job and reached the finish in 6th place only 9 minutes behind the leading team Sauser/Stander. In the overall ranking the FELT duo Lindgren/Kugler is now in fifth position - a good position to attack for the podium!
