The last day of dust for the 2017 Cape Epic.
Tar road is what we want to see the least at the Cape Epic. But the view to the other side of the mountain pass and the leading group chasing Nino Schurter in road racing style made me shoot this image.
While the last stage is all about the winning teams, I look for the emotion that comes after it’s all over. Here Mariske Strauss reflects on the last 8 days.

Sabine and Robyn snuck in behind a whole lot of other cyclists and pipped Annie and Mariske for the final stage win. They deserved it after their bad run of mechanicals and crashes!
How it works
- Every day each photographer will submit their favourite shot with a short note explaining its context.
- Each day’s winning photograph will go through to the “finals” on Wednesday, March 29.
- You will then get an opportunity to vote for the overall winner, who will get a R10 000 prize.
- The result will be announced on Monday, April 3, and voters who chose the winning picture will go into a lucky draw for a signed and framed version of the photograph.
