Team Bonitas riders excel in Portugal



Team Bonitas, one of South Africa’s top professional men’s road cycling teams, continued to achieve success on its European campaign when its riders dominated the opening stage of the Volta as Terras de Santa Maria on Saturday.

Bonitas sprinter, Herman Fouche, snapped up victory from a large bunch sprint at the end of the 141km stage. That gave him the leader’s Yellow Jersey as well as the lead in the Points Competition.

During the stage, Bonitas climber, Darren Lill, was one of two riders in a second-half breakaway and in the process, claimed the lead in the King of the Mountains competition by winning the second and third King of the Mountains primes.

Another Bonitas rider, Jason Bakke, was involved in the first major breakaway of the race and claimed the maximum points on offer at the first King of the Mountains prime.

On Sunday, the riders face the final two stages of the event – a 16km team time trial in the morning and a 65km circuit race in the afternoon.
