No Cape Town Cycle Tour 2021 in March, event 'untenable' say organisers
There's disappointing news for cyclists and fans of the Cape Town Cycle Tour as organisers say it is 'untenable' to go ahead with the event as planned in March.
For months organisers have been in talks with authorities and stakeholders around the possibility of hosting a revised version of the tour in March, but now say that's untenable.
Speaking to CapeTalk's Refilwe Moloto the director of the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust David Bellairs says they hope they may be able to host the event later in the year.
