Nicolai Bikes, based deep in the heart of rural Germany, are about as far removed from a 'normal' bike company as you'll ever find. Their factory, located in a nineteenth century farm, is easy to miss. Only the occasional waft of freshly-applied powder coat gives it away.
 
In response to media queries about the Brandon Stewart case, the Absa Cape Epic has reiterated its "zero tolerance" approach to doping: last year it became the first race in world cycling to issue a lifetime ban to any rider found guilty of illegal use of performance-enhancing drugs.
