The 2022 Cape Epic champions Lukas Baum (GER) and Georg Egger (GER) of the Orbea x Leatt x Speed ​​Company team won the Queen Stage with a time of 4 hours 13 minutes 6 seconds. It's their first stage victory this year but it's a heavy victory because they also conquer the leadership with an exceptional performance.

German flag-mates Simon Stiebjahn (GER) and Martin Frey (GER) of Team Singer Racing finished in second place 2 minutes and 32 seconds behind. A great result for the German duo and their first podium this year. Nino Schurter (SUI) and Andri Frischknecht (SUI) of Team SCOTT-SRAM MTB Racing crossed the line in third place but the gap from the winners was enough to lose the jersey.

In the women's race Efficient Infiniti Insure's Kim le Court (MRI) and Vera Looser (NAM) win again but the overall leaders remain Amy Wakefield (RSA) and Candice Lill (RSA) of e-FORT.net: SeattleCoffeeCo with a lead of over 10 minutes in general. Cannondale Vas Arabay's Greete Steinburg (EST) and Monica Yuliana Calderon Martinez (COL) completed the race in 3rd place with their first ever podium finish.

The Wilier Pirelli couple, Allemann and Rabensteiner, while Porro and Nibali began to feel tired and finished in 17th place, losing another position overall (tenths).

REPLAY



Written by

[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').
