The sixth stage of the Absa CAPE EPIC 2014 took place in South Africa yesterday. With 85km in distance and 1.800 climbing metres the route was less brutal than in yesterday's stage 5! However the riders had to be fully concentrated on the technical demanding single tracks around Oak Valley, as the Top 5 teams in the overall ranking were still close together! Every single mistake or problem would have been unforgiven.

 

Stage 6 - Results:

 

1st place: SCOTT-Odlo MTB Racing - 6-1 Nino Schurter (SUI) / 6-2 Philip Buys (RSA)
