Cape Argus 2013: Photos from the finish line

It was a photo finish for the men's race in this year's Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour, with mere milliseconds separating the first group of cyclists. Team Bonitas rider Herman Fouche took the trophy, with Westvaal-BMC rider Tyler Day coming in second, followed by another Team Bonitas rider, Christoff van Heerden. Anriëtte Schoeman won the ladies' race, with Cherise Stander and Jennie Stenerhag taking second and third place respectively.

There was plenty of other action at the finish line this morning – check out the photos below:
