NTT Pro Cycling's Nic Dlamini has recovered from the broken arm he received at the hands of Table Mountain National Park rangers near Cape Town, South Africa, in December last year, and says that he's ready to race again once the 2020 season resumes following the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

According to witness Donovan Le Cok, who videoed part of the incident on his phone, the park rangers stopped Dlamini – who was training in the park on his bike – and then forced him into their van, which was when his arm was broken. The video went viral, leaving people outraged by the heavy-handed actions of the park rangers, who allegedly stopped Dlamini for not paying to enter the park or displaying a proof-of-activity permit.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
