Stage six was another tough test for the riders at the ABSA Cape Epic. 89 kilometers and 2650 vertical meters with short but steep climbs made it extremely hard for all riders. Several riders including Urs Huber and Simon Stiebjahn as well as Martin Frey and Simon Schneller suffered from crashes. The BULLS Heroes finished the stage in 7th place though and still sit in 4th place in GC.
Our BULLS teams will work together as a team again to enable Urs Huber and Simon Stiebjahn to jump in the GC podium. At the toughest mountainbike stage race in the word, the race isn't over until you cross the finish line in Val de Vie. Everything is possible so keep your fingers crossed for Team BULLS in tomorrow's final stage.
