Your Cape Argus 2014 Results: Hoffman and Stander Victorious
A swashbuckling word-nerd and life-time student of the creative edge, Alessandro spends his time cooking up funky stories and getting his teeth kicked out at Thai Boxing. His geekiness comes in useful where he gets put to work fashioning digital content that sizzles. When not searching for the perfect metaphor, Alessandro hunts for the quirky, the arresting and the powerful, since following Dr Seuss’ maxim you gotta:
“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the THINKS you can think up if only you try!”
Nolan Hoffman emerged victorious at this year's Cape Argus Pick n Pay Momentum Cycle Tour after a fascinating, hard-fought race in a time of 2:38:39. Meron Teshome Hagos and H B Kruger came second and third respectively.
Cherise Stander won the woman's event in a time of 2:51:00, finishing well ahead of Anriette Schoeman in second and Che Joubert in third.
Over 35,000 will follow them across the finish line at the world's largest independently timed cycle race.
Known worldwide for its gorgeous scenery (where else do mountains meet the sea so spectacularly?) the Cape Argus once again showcased the Mother City's natural gifts to the world. On a beautiful sunny day, cyclists powered 109km through gusts of chilly wind. Staring in Hertzog Boulevard at the Cape Town Civic Centre, riders poured onto the N2, down the M3 along the False Bay Coast, up along the Atlantic coast, over Suikerbossie Hill and finished at the Cape Town Stadium in Green Point.
Congratulations to all those who made it!
