Tour of South Africa cancelled

Cycling South Africa (CSA) has announced that the 2008 Tour of South Africa will not take place. According to the federation, the event organisers were unable to raise sufficient sponsorship funding to cover the anticipated expenses, but want to start working as soon as possible to make the race happen again in 2009. One possibility would be to hold the event in February, "then hopefully the Tour of South Africa and the Giro can work together to share expenses, particularly in bringing overseas teams to South Africa," Larence Whittaker, CSA president said.
