Nino Schurter, Matthias Stirnemann, Jenny Rissveds and Thomas Frischknecht dominated at the World's toughest Mountain bike stage race, the Untamed African MTB Race #CapeEpic

What a team! 

The #ScottSram team left a huge footprint at Cape Epic and in the 15 years of team history with a Triple victory yesterday!

Nino Schurter and Matthias Stirnemann as well as Jenny Rissveds and Thomas Frischknecht have won their respective categories for the overall stage race, the Men's Elite and the Mixed Category. SCOTT-SRAM Young Guns Andri Frischknecht and Michiel van der Heijden secured their second stage win yesterday at the 7th stage from Oak Valley to Val de Vie.

"This is one of the best weeks I experienced throughout my 30 years lasting cycling career", Thomas Frischknecht says. What makes me almost happier than our overall win is the great performance of our so-called 'Back-Up-Team'. Our Young Guns not only proved that they are capable of racing at the highest level. With two stage wins and their relentless efforts in supporting Nino and Matthias, their overall performance can't be rated high enough", Frischknecht continues.

Jenny Rissveds: "I am so relieved. To win the Cape Epic is a huge thing for me. I have never been into stage racing, and I was actually not sure that I will make it. The past eight days have been very emotional, it was a tough start into the week under pretty intense circumstances; heat, draught, strong winds, sandy trails- it was racing as hard as it could get. However, my partner Thomas Frischknecht guided me perfectly through the week, I couldn't imagine a better race buddy than him. What makes me even more proud than wining our category is to see how our team worked this week- we've been one family and our support was just amazing."
