Tuesday, March 8, 2016 - 13:15

Our lab’s very own Sven Ragaller took part in the Cape Town Cycle Tour this past weekend. With 35 000 cyclists participating, this is the largest individually timed bicycle race in the world. The 109km long route meanders along the beautiful Cape peninsula. Riders start in batches, each containing about 500 riders. In the photo below there about 1500 riders, which makes the scale and organisation of this 39th edition an impressive feat.
