South African road and track cyclist, Nolan Hoffman, has won his fourth Cape Town Cycle Tour.

Hoffman finished in a time of two hours and 37-minutes.

In the women’s category, Kim Le Court secured a first-place finish with a time of two hours and 12-minutes.

Hoffman, who previously won the Cycle Tour in 2014, 2015 and 2018, says this win is one for the books.

“This one is definitely the best one of all of them. We are still battling this pandemic and it’s been tough. I’ve lost a lot of family members. This was sort of my last shot to show what I’m capable of. To still be at the top step at this tender age, I’m really grateful for good health.”

This is Le Court’s second Cape Town Cycle Tour victory.

The Cape Town Cycle Tour is the biggest timed bicycle race in the world. It was scheduled to take place earlier this year but was postponed due to COVID-19.

18 000 cyclists take part in the race, which is approximately half the amount normally allowed. Due to the lockdown regulations, no spectators were allowed.
