Silverback Fairtree’s Mariske Strauss and Jennie Stenerhag had a tougher day, and took a knock finishing fifth on Stage 6 of the 89km penultimate stage of the ABSA Cape Epic in Stellenbosch today.

“ With the crash yesterday we were playing it safe and to get home in one piece,” says Mariske.

“ The pace was turned up by Team Songo & Summit just before the first real climb of the day. After that we made a call to tap off a little and to get home safely,” adds Mariske.

Mariske & Jennie’s fighting spirit still remains and looking forward to what the final day holds.
