2019 Cape Pioneer Trek Ladies Race Update : Stage 2 & 3


A quick run down of how Stage 2 and 3 went down in the women's race at this year's Momentum Health Cape Pioneer Trek presented by Biogen.

Stage 2:

‘Outeniqua Odyssey’ marked the first of the journey stages at the Momentum Health Cape Pioneer Trek presented by Biogen. After a neutral ride through Mossel Bay to bid goodbye to the town, riders began to chip away at the 114km route with over 2000m of climbing in store.

The women’s elite race saw another showdown between Galileo Risk – Liv’s Theresa Ralph and Sarah Hill, and Dormakaba’s Sam Sanders and Amy McDougall. Once again it was Dormakaba who got the upper hand in the stage, but were unable make up enough time to oust Hill and Ralph out of their pink jerseys.

Finishing the stage in third was Seattle Coffee’s Cherise Willeit and Nicky Gilomee.

Stage three of the Momentum Health Cape Pioneer Trek presented by Biogen took riders in an easterly direction towards Louvain. The day began with fast-flowing single track that traversed the Northern foothills of the Outeniqua Mountains. It was once again Galileo Risk – Liv’s Theresa Ralph and Sarah Hill that set the women’s elite field alight. The pair launched their attack on Montagu Pass and didn’t look back, leaving a floundering Sam Sanders and Amy McDougall in their wake.The Dormakaba team has been desperately trying to play catch up after puncturing on the Prologue, but to no avail.
