The Panorama Tour - The Toughest Race On Tar

TIME TRIAL: GAME CHANGER

Clawing their way back from an 8 second deficit Brandon Downes & Kai Pritzen (Karan Beef 1) collapsed over the finish line in a time of 00:58:07. Leaving them with 39 seconds gained and the PPS Panorama Tour General Classification win. 

It was a titanic battle between the Karan Beef 1 duo and Protouch-Demacon’s Barend Burger & Stephan Reyneke. The two teams contested every stage with a sprint for the finish. Ultimately it was the ‘Race of Truth’ that saw Karan Beef 1 don the final yellow jerseys. 

“The field was strong and the competition was tough over the first three stages. Going into the Time Trial our main objective was to consolidate our second position. Things went well for us and we managed to clinch the overall win.” said Downes. 

Local mountain biker Vanessa Bell and partner Dalene van der Leek (Team Bells Cycling LGE Midas) dominated the Women’s category in all four stages. “This is my first ever road race so I made a couple rookie errors,” said Bell. “We’re looking forward to defending our title next year.”

The Time Trial went according to plan, with the top teams retaining their general classification positions.
