The Inaugural Breedenet Cape Duo Challenge Day 2 – Bainskloof pass

Run Ride Dive News

Bainskloof Pass was at its supreme best and in all its Spring glory providing our riders 91kms of challenging excitement, which favoured the “Roadies” offering a great climb and a chance to push each other our day 2 road stage.

Riders left Welbedacht Wine Estate, Schalk Burger and Sons in Wellington to head over Bainskloof – then return with the opportunity to be crowned the Stellenbrau King of the Mountain on the climb back up to the peak.

Team Giant – Chris Cronje and David Garrett strategically took the lead winning the Men’s Duo Category, Silverback’s Marthinus Kruger & Yolande de Villiers retained their lead in the mixed duo. CeresCycles ladies duo, Lehane Oosthuizen & Leorine de Wet and Linus van Oneselen & Chris Brand, the Golden Oldies team in Masters Duo are top of their log. Morné van Greunen walk away with the day 2 Solo Champion of Champions win.

Chris Cronje from team Giant won the Stellenbrau King of the Mountain Jersey & Prize money.  There will be another King of the Mountain title up for grabs as riders cycle Welvanpas tomorrow.

All eyes will be on Breedenet’s dynamic duo – Charl-Pierre Estehuyse & Robert Hobson to see if they can close the gap at the top of the GC in 50km of single track racing which favours their riding style on stage 4 of the Cape Duo Challenge and chase for the top spot.
