Cycle Tour Weekend Is Here

by on

This Sunday, the 13th of March, thousands of cycling enthusiasts are participating in the Cycle Tour, one of the largest cycling events in Southern Africa. We are looking forward to the event and have a number of activities planned including some exciting visitors; legendary Italian cyclist Maurizio Fondriest as well as Team Bonitas.

Maurizio Fondriest will be one of the thousands of race participants and in preparation for the event, he will be attending the carbo-loading dinner at the Atlantic Grill on Friday evening. Maurizio began his professional cycling career in 1987 with the Ecoflam team. The number of personal achievements over his professional career, which spanned 11 years, will stand him in good stead for this weekend in terms of having a vast amount of experience. After retirement in 1998, Maurizio started a carbon fiber bicycle manufacturer called Fondriest.
