Once the bug bites..
Dramatic time at The Cape Epic Stage 2….top female team Ariane Kleinhans and Annika Langvad got served 1hr add on to their finishing time for taking a wrong turn..this dropped them into 4th position overall.
I have often wondered about this type of thing when riders take the wrong turn or miss a turning point…because all the mtb races I have completed, there was a race briefing, and they make it very clear to all riders when you line up, that there are clear marks on route and you must abide by them..
I always wondered what if I dont see a board with an arrow…but that has never happened in the local mtb races i have taken part in…
So in this case being The Cape Epic…i would assume that the trails are very clearly marked..for a team like this to miss a turn or a board is also understandable..because they are so focused and in the zone that concentration is at an all high level..
But nonetheless, this is racing and can happen to anyone…i have no doubt that this top ladies team will come back over the coming days and dish out the pain, because they are now riding on adrenalin..watch this space.
