The five-day, five-stage event carries a UCI category 2.2 grading and will again host South African and international cycling teams.

The team is as follows:

Carl Pasio (Team captain)

Craig Symons

Emile Jacobs

Morne van Niekerk

Wesley Eslick

Chris Jooste

Team Manager - Owen Botha

Assistant Manager and soigneur - Brussouw Boshoff

Mechanic - Casper Bester

Due to most of Cycling South Africa’s Top Clubs being invited by the event to participate, Cycling SA cannot make use of any of these riders for the national team.

The selectors have used this opportunity to invest in our future cyclists by selecting a predominantly under-23 team. The young riders will use the platform of the highly acclaimed UCI category 2.2 event to race together within a team structure.

The 2014 Mzansi Tour will begin with a Prologue in Johannesburg, with Stages 1, 2 and 3 taking place in the Free State Province. The five-day stage race will once again end in Johannesburg.
