Durban - The trial of the minibus taxi driver who allegedly knocked over and killed mountain biker Burry Stander was postponed on Monday.

The matter would resume in the Port Shepstone Magistrate's Court on 12 February next year.

The postponement was to allow Njabulo Nyawose to obtain funds to pay his defence counsel, said KwaZulu-Natal National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson, Natasha Ramkisson-Kara.

Nyawose allegedly knocked down Stander, 25, while he was cycling in Shelley Beach, on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast, on 3 January last year.

Stander was fifth in the men's cross-country cycling race at the 2012 London Olympics. At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing he finished 15th in the cross-country event.
