Yesterday afternoon this SMS message came in from Quito, Ecuador to the Tour d'Afrique staff in Toronto:
"After 12000km 95000m of vertical climbing and 134 days of cycling thru 7 south American countries we finally crossed the finish line and we were only 2 min late. Can't decide what I want more right now sleep or rum."
Congratulations to all the participants and staff in the inaugural Vuelta Sudamericana. Well done, and safe travels home after your amazing journey!
A full report is coming soon from the finish line, stay tuned…
