The 35th annual Cape Argus Pick and Pay was held on the Sunday 11th March with over 35,000 cyclists taking to the road. The conditions were perfect with the feared south easterly wind that has taken its toll in the past absent this year.
Competition was hot in the elite category with a number of crashes resulting from the intense racing. Incidents marred both the male and female results with the eventual winners Janse van Rensburg and Moolman Pasio.
This iconic event with its origins dating back to 1978 and just a few hundred riders has become the largest individually timed cycle event in the world.
For a number of years now this event has been timed by Racetec SA with RFID Race Timing’s HDD timing system. The reliability of this timing system combined with low profile mats makes it a perfect option for a cycling event of this magnitude.
