March News

Entries closing soon

Entries for the 2013 Tour and Lite close on Friday March 15th. Please don't miss the deadline otherwise you'll pay a hefty late entry penalty and we can't guarantee that you'll get correct sizing of your race garment. If you are not so fit, come and join us for the Lite and spend the rest of the weekend enjoying the Lowveld.

Route Changes

Coal trucks and road damage have forced us to modify Stage Two and the Time Trial. Stage Two is now 85km with 1293m of ascent. It is only the last section after the airport that has been moved slightly. The Time Trial may be completely new and we will post the information as soon as its confirmed.

Rain and the trucks have dug up big potholes but now that the wet season is drawing to a close, the municipality should start to catch up. We'll be monitoring the routes.

Training Camp

If you are a paid up entrant to the event, you are invited to particpate in a training camp on the route on the long weekend of March (21st - 24th). We plan to ride the TT on the afternoon of Thursday 21st,  Stage Two on Friday morning and the two long stages over the weekend. Please RSVP to This email address is being protected from spambots.
