Jara and Christoph have won the Cape Epic for the second time!


Jaroslav Kulhavy and Christoph Sauser dominated this year´s Absa Cape Epic! At the most prestigious stage race of the mountain bikes they have won five of eight stages. Today they returned after 739 kilometres to the lovely winery Meerendal with the view of the Table Mountain in the yellow jerseys of the race leaders. They won with the 10:41minute lead before the Topeak Ergon team and thus followed up their success from 2013.

“It is perfect and of course I am very happy! It was our first goal of the season and we have fulfilled it perfectly. We really enjoyed the final race part, because everything was quite clear. Today we were riding comfortably, especially in the downhills, we stopped competing and we were celebrating a little in the last kilometres. I am very glad that we have managed to win because of Susi as well, for whom it was the last Cape Epic. He has won this stage race for the fifth time, no one has managed so far. A large contribution to our success has the entire team, including mechanics, masseurs and others and thanks to them everything worked perfectly,” said Jara in the finish and before going on bike together with Christoph to the forty kilometres away hotel, allowing himself the hamburger as the first reward.
