The Western Cape Department of Health Emergency Medical Services (EMS) has been involved with the Cape Argus Pick ân Pay Momentum Cycle Tour, one of the greatest events the city hosts annually, since its inception.

The Blue Label Telecoms Proteas and Australia were denied useful match practice ahead of the ICC World Twenty20 (T20) when the first KFC T20 international was washed out at Axxess St George’s Park on Sunday.
Rain fell throughout the morning in Port Elizabeth, and although it stopped around 2:30pm – the time that the game was scheduled to get underway – it soon returned to prevent any play at all.
The second match of the series is scheduled for Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on Wednesday, while the final game will be played at SuperSport Park on Friday.
South Africa’s first game of the World T20 is against Sri Lanka on March 22 in Chittagong, and they will play two warm-up matches in Bangladesh prior to the tournament.
The Vodacom Bulls delivered their best performance of the season as the Cell C Sharks kept their grip on the top of the Vodacom Super Rugby table.
The three-time champions from Pretoria scored four tries to one in their impressive victory over the Blues at Loftus Versfeld â their first try-scoring bonus-point of 2014 in a 38-22 win.
The Cell C Sharksâ score over the Lions was similar â 37-23 â and they also got a bonus-point for four tries which, as in the Vodacom Bullsâ case, was scored very late in the match.
The two South African teams currently touring Down Under both lost â the Toyota Cheetahs by 43-33 against the Reds in Brisbane, while the DHL Stormers put in a very spirited performance in Christchurch, but ultimately lost by 14-13 against the Crusaders â their 33rdÂ successive home win over teams from the Republic.
Two of the three remaining unbeaten teams in the competition, the defending champion Chiefs and the Waratahs, had byes this weekend.
The Down Touch Griffons and Cell C Sharks XV were the big winners in the first round of the 2014 Vodacom Cup, which kicked off across the width and breadth of South Africa this weekend.
These two teams top the North and South Section logs after round one when they managed to bag a full-house of five log points in their opening victories over the Assupol Limpopo Blue Bulls and Border Bulldogs respectively.
After a slowish start, the Down Touch Griffons really stepped on the gas in the second half of their match against the side from Limpopo, scoring 43 unanswered points in the second half as they romped to a 62-10 victory at Bultfontein High SchoolÂ on Saturday.
On FridayÂ evening in East London, the Cell C Sharks XV was forced to fight back hard in the final 30 minutes against a spirited Border Bulldogs side, who lead by 24-10 early in the second half at the Buffalo City Municipality Stadium. In the end however, the KwaZulu-Natalians simply had too much left in the tank as they scored a comfortable win by 46-24.

*Men in tiny tight little shorts appear*
It is the day I discovered rugby.
