Caught up in a cycle race

Ross Methven is riding a bicycle from Edinburgh, Scotland, to Cape Town, South Africa. He is currently cycling through Tanzania and I am accompanying him on part of the Tanzanian leg. My Mt. Kilimanjaro guide, Yahoo, says cycling is one of the best training options for climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro.
On day 11 of riding with Ross in Tanzania, were were caught up in a bicycle race sponsored by Tanzania Breweries Limited's Safari Lager Brand. To some spectators along the way our presence in the midst of this cycle race drew curious comments, some sarcastic. I could tell the comments were impolite because when I slowly cycled past a group of spectators the entire group would laugh. 

I suspected the prevailing comment was: "In what year will these two super slow cyclists complete the race?"
Those comments did not prevent Ross from reporting who was the ideal race leader.
