Nairobi - Renowned cyclist, David Kinja, has confirmed his participation at the 2014 Cape Argus Tour.
The race is scheduled for March 9 in the coastal city of Cape Town in South Africa.
Kinja, who seems to be in good shape and raring to go, will first compete in the KwaZulu Natal Mountain Bike challenge this weekend before proceeding to Cape Town next week for the Cape Argus cycling.
To show his commitment, Kinja has already flown into South Africa ahead of the two competitions.
Kinja has over the years participated in major cycling such as the Tour de France, where he said he only competed to gain experience.
He said he would use the Cape Argus race to gain knowledge so that when he returned to Kenya, he would share his experiences with the aspiring cyclists so that the country developed its own for future competitions.
The Cape Argus Tour is an annual event that attracts international cyclists from across the world and has huge financial benefits for the participants, particularly the winners.
The Tour, which is jointly sponsored by the Western Cape Government, Pick & Pay, Momentum, Claremont, MediClinic, Powerade and Cape Argus draws international cyclists from Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, USA, Germany, Japan, Russia, France, Portugal, among others.
In Africa, cyclists from countries such as Zimbabwe, the host nation South Africa, Kenya, Zambia and Namibia also compete.
