The Start

Teams must enter the start area (Swellendam Showgrounds) from Stasie Street. Once in the start area, the whole team will then pass through the start chutes. A new start protocol will be implemented to adhere to social distancing, and all riders will be temperature checked and screened before entering the start area. Teams will need to arrive no more than 20 minutes and no less than 10 minutes before their allocated start time in order to complete Covid-19 protocol checks but at the same time to ensure maximum social distancing.

Each cyclist will receive their official race number at registration.

The race number indicates the specific start chute to which each team must report. Start marshals will then direct teams through the start chutes to the start line in Somerset Road. The start schedule will be available on this website the week before the event.

VERY IMPORTANT! No spectators are allowed at the start. Only riders will be allowed into the start venue where there will be toilet facilities for riders to use. There will be no toilet facilities available for spectators.
