black_narrativeCape Town - 170312 - This is the moment when race official Sammy Hardine stopped the leading pack of cyclists 30km into the race. He then delivered the unpresedented news that for the first time in its history, the biggest timed cycle tour in the world, will be cancelled. The 40th Annual Cape Town Cycle Tour was cancelled at 6:38am due to wind speeds considerably higher than predicted yesterday. This, combined with a large fire that broke out in Hout Bay in the early hours of this morning, and the added risk of protest action en route, were all contributing factors to the decision made in our Joint Operation Centre (JOC) by the VOC Commander to stop the event.
