Cyclist breaks arm in altercation with park rangers
South African road cyclist Nicholas Dlamini has broken his arm after he was stopped by rangers in Table Mountain National Park while on a training ride. South African National Parks says Dlamini, 24, was suspected of entering the park without paying an entrance fee and a "Scuffle ensured" when he failed to show the requested documentation. "In a statement, the team said:"NTT Pro Cycling can confirm that rider Nicolas Dlamini sustained a broken arm after being stopped by SANParks officials in the Silvermine section of Table Mountain National Park on Friday. "NTT Pro Cycling also notes the release of a statement of the incident by SANParks. The video taken by the eyewitness clearly outlines the course of events which saw Nicholas sustain this injury." "SANParks' acting head of communications Rey Thakhuli told BBC Sport:"The rangers were alerted by the gate officials after somebody was seen entering the park without paying the mandatory fee.
