Tour d’Afrique Race Results
It is with a mixture of emotions that we ended the race component of the Tour d’Afrique in 2017. On the one hand we can celebrate the success of the race for its initial 13 years, from 2003 to 2015, when many cyclists were keen on competing and the contest itself was both friendly and fierce. During the final two editions however, interest in the race dwindled to a handful of participants or less. Not to mention we’ve even had clients, who were all in for the race on the Tour d’Afrique, exclaim when they were riding another of our trans-continental tours, how refreshing it was not to be competing.
Cyclists on future editions of the Tour d’Afrique will still be riding many of the same daily stages, they just won’t be racing them. Instead the removal of the race component will allow our staff to focus on providing the same level of quality service to all participants, while enabling those riders who are inclined to put pedal to the metal, to slow down a bit and inhale Africa and all it has to offer.
