In one of the last warm-up races before the Cape Argus Pick ‘n Pay Cycle Tour and Giro del Capo, Team CVT/CSC swept aside the field to claim all three podium places in the weekend’s  Wilde Berg River cycle race held in Wellington.
CVT/CSC team captain Wesley Cole and last week’s race winner, Chris Willemse Jnr, crossed the line together almost two minutes ahead of the main bunch, with Cole being credited with first place. Jayson Berry (also from Team CVT/CSC) outsprinted the bunch to claim third position.
Cole, Willemse Jnr and UCT rider, William Robertson, used the climb up Bothmaskloof Pass to open up a 30 second lead on the main bunch but Robertson battled to stay with the CVT/CSC duo and was later caught by the chasing pack.
Konrad Siebritz (Maties) was fourth.
