The sun has long set on the first-ever prologue stage of the Absa Cape Epic but sun-seared skin, battered bikes and strained sinews will remind riders well into the early hours of the morning of the 17-kilometre opening stage endured today.

For the pro riders the sprint through the natural splendour of the Pezula Estate outside the picturesque coastal town of Knysna was just over half an hour – short, fast, intense and so nothing like the remaining 950 kilometres that lie in wait en route to Cape Town. For the 1200-strong field it was a slightly longer ordeal but a valuable chance to do a last bike check and get a feel for the riding conditions ahead. The short technical singletrack, loose rocky descents and jeep track climbs introduced riders to African racing. Even the start/finish line on the meticulously maintained sports field with its hard cropped grass covering proved tough, with many riders checking for loose headsets and flat tyres on rolling out of the start chute.

For a race that is widely regarded as the "Tour de France of mountain biking" the 17-kilometre race against the clock might seem a strange way to embark on an eight-day war of attrition. But this year's prologue stage was introduced to seed riders for the start of the main event, which rolls out of Knysna tomorrow morning at 7am.

The stage win didn't come easily for South Africans Kevin Evans and David George. The Team MTN Energade riders have lived out of each others' pockets over the past several months, leaving nothing to chance as they gun for overall line honours in this year's Absa Cape Epic. They know that trust and belief in one's team-mate are essential to getting through the unforgiving terrain. Road riding specialist, George describes their plan for the prologue as "military" in its precision. The two rode the course repeatedly in the weeks leading up to the start, dissecting its many challenges to calculate exactly how they were going to upstage the world-class field that gathered for the start this morning. Reigning South African XC Champ, Evans, put the win down to his team-mate's road riding prowess: "Dave is so experienced in time trials… we had a plan for the whole course."

Evans and George's victory is made all the sweeter as it is the first time an all-South African team has worn the coveted yellow and black leaders' jersey on the Absa Cape Epic in its five-year history.

But tomorrow is where the real test begins – with the 123-kilometre ride to Saasveld. It is here that the true class of these two will be put to the test. Christoph Sauser and Burry Stander, Karl Platt and Stefan Sahm, Roel Paulissen and Jakob Fuglsang, Bart Brentjens and Alban Lakata as well as Fredrik Kessiakoff and Massimo de Bertolis will not take their eyes off the South Africans.

Trek/VW's Chris Eatough summed it up well on behalf of his Northern Hemisphere counterparts after his solid 14th place today: "I noticed the heat. It went by quicker and shorter than I imagined. I'm not built for this." But we all know what the six-time World 24-hour Champion is built for: hours in the saddle. And many more await.

Americans surprise favourites in women's event

In the women's event it was the American duo of Susan Haywood and Jennifer Smith, riding for Trek/VW WSD, who outgunned the competition in the opening event. The power team of Pia Sundstedt and Alison Sydor came in second, 38 seconds back, while locals Erica Green and Hanlie Booyens were also within a minute of the winners, to get third on the day. As with the men's event, the battle just has begun.

Till tomorrow then.
