South Africa has enjoyed a strong showing at the Tour de Delhi with Arran Brown claiming victory at the race from compatriot Malcolm Lange. The duo were part of a four-man group to finish the race together, with Malnt Berkenbosch (Dutch National Team) and Kevin Maene (Belgian National Team) taking third and fourth respectively.

Kristof De Reeper (Belgian National Team) crossed the finish line alone in fifth place. Thijs Polestra (Dutch National Team) won the bunch sprint for sixth place, some 2:32 minutes behind Brown.

The race was staged as a test event for the Commonwealth Games road race, which will be held in October. While a small group proved successful at the test event, it’s expected a larger sprint finish will result at the Commonwealth Games thanks to the stronger national teams that will be present from the likes of Australia, Great Britain and Canada.
