So many faces tried after the Queen Stage at the Cape Epic: 102km for a difference in altitude of 2450m, with initial bad weather, put all the athletes to the test. And, as expected, some good things happened in the standings with the Scott Sram Racing Team losing the jersey to the Leatt Orbea Speed ​​Company.

Let's go and see a few shots that reveal the real effort of these stages, that effort that any Biker (with a capital B) has experienced at least once.

Busy day today, unfortunately I crashed hitting my ribs. This pain accompanied me throughout the race, gritting our teeth we reached the finish line even despite the difficult weather conditions, characterized by heavy rain. It's a tough but beautiful race. Thanks to Scott and Kurt Gross for great help and support. Thanks also to my partner Samuele Porro – Vincenzo Nibali

Nibali is racing with Samuele Porro (Wilier Pirelli) under Team Q36.5: being in 2 different teams, Samuele and Vincenzo have given themselves the name of "Italian Friends" and with this name they are in the standings. Nibali is racing at the South African mountain bike race with Q36.5 products, such as shorts Doctor Clima Bib Shorts.

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
