Next time racing has been suspended due to the wind think about this

Winds of up to 100kph that blew competitors off their bikes have forced organizers to cancel an international road race in South Africa.

The havoc on the Cape Town Cycle Tour began at the start of the race close to the city’s foreshore when cyclists encountered gusts so strong that they struggled to hang onto their bikes and stop them from being blown away.

Cyclists in the South African city of Cape Town were thrown around in the wind as heavy gusts brought an early end to a race. Video from the Cape Town Cycle Tour shows the wind lifting bikes off the road and stopping cyclists dead in their tracks.
