Tour d’Afrique 2013 is a monster of a race. 12,000 km from Cairo to Cape Town. A real test of human spirit and endurance. Over 50 athletes will compete to be first to the Atlantic ocean by riding over 70 miles a day.
Cinelli are taking part using their hand built Tour d’Afrique Hobo. It’s one tough bike, built from Columbus Life tubing the frame has laid back geometry for comfort on tough rocky terrain. That’s not to say it can’t pick up plenty of speed on something smoother! Tough enough to carry all the required kit too. If you’ve got an expedition planned over the next year the Hobo might be one for your shortlist as it will be available to buy in the near future.
