Argus 2011

Cyclists descended upon Cape Town this past weekend. Before sunrise had a chance to shed it's bright light on the City of Choice, colourful and lithe lycra bathed bodies wielding superbly crafted bicycles lifted the predawn landscape from its slumbering hues. United in the pursuit of crossing the Pick n Pay Argus finish line in the world’s biggest individually-timed road cycle race these athletes exuded a taunt atmosphere of anticipation.

Festivities extended all around Green Point with restaurants serving up carbo-boosting fare, food vendors, live music and activities were set up to entertain the spectators and cyclists. Great weather also contributed in reinforcing that Cape Town is indeed The City of Choice.

The 2011 winner was Tyler Day. Defending champion, Malcolm Lange came second. This is a truly noble title to hold in a race that has been going on for more than thirty years and draws about thirty thousand entrants.

Did you enjoyed the Argus footage on television? Did you watch the race in Cape Town? If you are ready to race out on your own adventure visit to find a cycling venue nearby.
