The fifth stage of the ABSA Cape Epic led the riders from Oak Valley to Stellenbosch - 100 kilometers and 2850 vertical meters in total. The so called "Queenstage" is an extremely demanding and hard stage for the riders.
Urs Huber and Simon Stiebjahn from Team BULLS Heroes suffered with crashes. Together with BULLS Legends Karl Platt and Alban Lakata both teams delivered a great fight to finally finish the stage in P10 and P11. The BULLS Youngsters Martin Frey and Simon Schneller finished 14th. Two more demanding stages are waiting for the riders until they reach the finish line of Cape Epic in Val de Vie.
