SA cyclist Nic Dlamini in positive spirits and hasn't ruled out 2020 Olympic bid
Pro South African cyclist Nic Dlamini has not given up on his chances of racing at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games just yet.
Dlamini broke his arm after he was injured in a scuffle with Table Mountain park rangers last month.
His cycling squad NTT Pro Cycling says Dlamini remains hopeful that he will recover in time to get back in the saddle.
NTT Pro Cycling spokesperson Jean Smyth says medical experts will decide the next steps for his rehabilitation process by the end of this week.
The team will review Dlamini’s cycling calendar for 2020 based on the prognosis, Smyth explains.
He's in a fairly positive mood. It's been a difficult period for him.Jean Smyth, Head of Communications - NTTProCycling

The star cyclist was mean to participate in The 2020 Tour Down Under, a cycling race in Adelaide, South Australia taking place this month.
Dlamini will be represented by international law firm Norton Rose in the legal action against SANParks.
