The second event in the Liberty Life Criterium Cycle Series was held on Saturday 1st July at the Nelson Mandela Square and Darryl Impey thrilled the spectators with his high speed win.

Darryl Impey from Team Microsoft rode to victory to claim the R50 000 first prize offered by Liberty Life in this invitation-only event which sped around a 2km street circuit in Sandtons CBD.

The fastest individual time and R 3 000 also went to Darryl Impey in a time of 6.42 minutes. Team Microsoft received R3 000 for the fastest team time of 10.06 in the three lap team trial event.

This is the second time that Liberty Life has held this event at Nelson Mandela Square and judging by the crowds we believe it is a concept that will grow and become an exciting day out for South African families, says Rex Tomlinson, Deputy CE, Liberty Life.

Cycling fans and anyone looking for a day of high speed entertainment will still have the opportunity to be thrilled when the Series takes to the streets of Khayelitsha on September 16th and the Durban Beach Front on December 1st. Watch SuperSport and the press for details.
