About the Book
April 2013 bid a warm South African welcome to the inaugural Mzansi Tour powered by Cathsseta. Mzansi is the Zulu word meaning 'the South' and is often used as a colloquialism to refer to South Africa. It's appropriate then as the name for the Mzansi Tour, the only UCI-graded road cycling stage race in Southern Africa.
The five-day, six-stage event carried a 2.2 International Cycling Union (UCI) grading and took place from 17 to 21 April, 2013 hosting 15 South African and international teams. The South African landscape provided a spectacular backdrop for a tour of this nature, with open roads, breathtaking views, mountainous terrain and a warm climate, with spectators and fans who can greet you in 11 official languages.
