Anyone know what is happening? I was about to head out to Fourways - seems pointless now.

And now a second stop, just 1:30 after the first one!

Hear Phil Liggett trying to say, in that very professional and politically correct manner of his, how he's never seen this before in an international bike tour, and basically how disappointing (unprofessional) it is for the tour.

Will be interesting if cyclejourno can get some first-hand comments from the riders about this - that second stop they looked really p1ssed.

This is just crazy - and here we are trying to promote a World Class Africa City. Really poor show.

Is the Taxi Industry responsible for this?

Nah, it was the organisers not being able to stop the taxi's from driving through... wasnt aimed at Tour - just one of those things from bad planning
