The Cape Town Cycle Tour, more commonly referred to as the Cape Argus is an annual cycle race hosted in Cape Town, South Africa. The course is 109 km long and takes riders past some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, including the 7th wonder of the world Table Mountain.
With as many as 35 000 cyclists taking part, the Cape Town Cycle tour is the world’s largest individually timed cycle race. It is the first event outside Europe to be included in the Union Cycliste Internationale’s Golden Bike Series.
2019 saw the 41st running of this world-famous cycling tour, it truly was a celebration of all things cycling, highlighting the healthy lifestyle and freedom of movement the humble bicycle offers all its inhabitants and visitors.
This year AMA Africa decided to get involved in this ever growing event by sponsoring cycling jerseys for one of our Senior Consultants, Leith Anticevich and his team of riders.
On the morning of Sunday 9 March 2019, Leith took to the road for his first participation in this spectacular race. Persevering through the howling winds clocked at 27m/ph, as well as a strained muscle – an injury he obtained just before the Suikerbossie climb – true to form Leith powered through the pain and managed to complete the race. Unfortunately the injury took him out of the running for achieving his personal time goal, but we are sure that next year he will reach his goal.
We wish him and his team luck as they start preparing for The Standard Bank Iron Man 70.3 in Durban this June.
