A race could not have been more thrilling, after the team of Speed Company Racing could already surprisingly win the third stage at Cape Epic they now write history and secure the overall victory on the final stage. The sensation is perfect and history is written.
The team, consisting of Georg Egger from Augsburg and Lukas Baumann (Neustadt an der Weinstraße), entered the world's toughest race with clear ambitions.
"We are not here to participate. We are here to attack!"
Seven days later, a stage win in the bag, the duo was only two minutes and 45 seconds behind the leading team of Andreas Seewald and Martin Stosek on the final stage. The goal was clearly "attack" on the final stage. The attack succeeded and the team won the lead and thus the overall victory in an exciting race.
