This will arguably be the 2nd hardest stage of the race with 2000m of climbing over 99km. A short neutral goodbye ride through the town will see riders speeding along the paved walkways next to Hartenbos beach, always at the mercy of the tide but so spectacular. The race heads towards the foothills of the great Outeniqua Mountains where jeep and single track will traverse the foothills of the mountain, heading straight East towards George.
Some rewarding single track just after water point 3 will see riders getting a taste of the fun that waits on stage 4. We finish at Van Kervel High School, a Cape Pioneer partner since 2009!
