Dear Trans Augrabies MTB Stage Race Participants and Supporters,
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the Trans Augrabies MTB Stage Race for the year 2024. Despite our best efforts and the enthusiasm from the cycling community, we have faced the unfortunate reality of too few entries to proceed with the event.
This decision was not made lightly, and we understand the disappointment it may cause among our participants and supporters. Organizing the Trans Augrabies MTB Stage Race is a labor of love, and we have explored various avenues to ensure the event's success. Unfortunately, the lack of a sufficient number of entries has made it financially untenable to proceed.
As a privately hosted event, we must prioritize the financial viability and sustainability of the Trans Augrabies MTB Stage Race. The decision to cancel is based on the need to mitigate the risks associated with insufficient participation. While we deeply regret having to make this announcement, we believe it is in the best interest of all involved.
We want to assure you that we are actively exploring alternative options and strategies to ensure the future success of the Trans Augrabies MTB Stage Race. We remain committed to providing a premier mountain biking experience in the years to come, and we appreciate your understanding and continued support.
We understand the time, dedication, and excitement invested by participants in preparing for the event, and we share in your disappointment. To those who have already registered, we will be reaching out shortly to discuss refund processes and any additional details.
Thank you for being an integral part of the Trans Augrabies MTB Stage Race community. We look forward to overcoming these challenges and returning with a stronger and more vibrant event in the future.
