STORY: Overall race leaders Christoph Sauser of Switzerland and Czech Republic’s Jaroslav Kulhavy won stage five of the Cape Epic on Friday (March 20), their fourth stage win of the 2015 race.

The Investec-Songo-Specialized combination now have an overall lead of more than 10 minutes.

The 121-kilometre route also included some fierce climbs and took them up the national monument that is Bain’s Kloof Pass and then on to the three-kilometre Full Monty climb in the Welvanpas trail network.

It was at the bottom of the Full Monty that Sauser and Kulhavy managed to shake off the last of the teams and establish a firm lead. By the time they crossed the finish line 15 kilometres later, they were almost a minute ahead of Germany’s Karl Platt and Swiss rider Urs Huber.

South Africans Darren Lill and Waylon Woolcock finished the stage in third place.

The Topeak Ergon team of Austria’s Alban Lakata and Kristian Hynek of Czech Republic, the second placed team in the overall standings, lost time due to mechanical problems. Lakata first punctured near the start and then twisted a chain when it fell off on a descent.

Hynek and Lakata retained their second place overall, but are 10 minutes and 51 seconds behind the leaders.

The women’s race continued to be dominated by Ariane Kleinhans of Switzerland and Denmark’s Annika Langvad, who extended their lead to around 50 minutes over their closest challengers.
