  1. In terms of cycling, the introduction of Level 2 now allows recreational cyclists to attend events (with a temporary day license) and the opening up of all cycling disciplines. Image: BOOGS Photography While recreational sport is permitted under Level 2, there have been no further guidelines in terms of group sporting activities. It is our recommendation that general group rides be limited to 10 people to comply with social distancing measures. In addition, organised club rides should follow the requirements for gatherings and limit size to a maximum of 50 people with all COVID19 health protocols and social distancing measures being adhered to. All other Level 3 regulations remain unchanged in terms of gatherings and events. In relation to event size, the limitation of gatherings to 50 people has the practical implication of start groups being limited to approx. 40 - 45 cyclists, when taking staff numbers into account. In addition to the restricted small-batch starts, it needs to be remembered that the total event attendance limitation per day is stipulated at 300 which again includes all staff and cyclists. We have received several requests for reconsideration of the cancellation of the National Championship events but taking the restrictions into account, fair and equitable National Championships are impossible to host as it would require CyclingSA to limit the number of riders who may compete. It is for this reason that the National Championships across all disciplines remain cancelled until such time that the regulations allow for greater participation, and therefore a true or full representation of national talent. We appeal to all organisers, entry portals, administrative companies and participants to be aware of, and follow the regulations as we do not want to have these allowances retracted.
  2. Cycling South Africa reports that Pieter Seyffert who returned an adverse analytical finding in an in-competition test conducted by the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport(SAIDS) on 17 February 2013 has been found guilty and has received a two year ban from all sport. The analytical report confirmed the presence of the stimulant, Phentermine in his urine sample. The finding and sanction were handed down by the independent SAIDS tribunal which was held on 9 July 2013. Seyffert is suspended for a period of two years from 10 April 2013 to 9 April 2015.

  3. In addition, all competitive results obtained by Seyffert from the date of collection of the positive sample, being 17 February 2013, will be disqualified with all of the resulting consequences including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes (including prize money). Cycling South Africa respects the independence of the SAIDS process and therefore respects the outcome. Cycling South Africa further reiterates its zero-tolerance approach to doping in sport and will increase its education and awareness programmes along with SAIDS to eradicate the scourge of doping from the sport.
  4. Mrs Olivier, a member of the BestMed Road Rangers safety initiative, was performing her role as a safety marshal to keep the participating cyclists of the 2019 Takealot Tour of Good Hope in good hands when an oncoming vehicle lost control and crossed over the road, causing an accident with the experienced marshal. Mrs Olivier was admitted to the hospital and passed away last evening. As per all sanctioned race incidents, Cycling South Africa will collate the information regarding the accident. Mrs Olivier’s family, her Road Rangers family, and all the organisers and participants of the Tour of Good Hope are in our thoughts during this difficult time.
  5. Currently, under UCI and Cycling SA regulations, the use of E-bikes by participants is not allowed in sanctioned events. Events that are sanctioned by Cycling South Africa agree to abide by the current rules and regulations. Currently, under UCI and Cycling SA regulations, the use of E-bikes by participants is not allowed in sanctioned events. Events that are sanctioned by Cycling South Africa agree to abide by the current rules and regulations. Should an event organiser choose to include the participation of e-bikes they do so at entirely their own risk. The insurance cover provided under Cycling SA sanctioning only covers the riders who participate within the rules of Cycling SA – that is riders on conventional bicycles. Members of Cycling SA who participates in sanctioned events on an E-Bike will also forfeit any potential claim for medical assistance, as the use of E-Bikes falls outside of the scope of the federation’s rules and regulations. An E-Bike rider has a distinct advantage over all other competitors and can be used by a participant to try and influence their seeding for future events in both road and mountain bike events, attain a podium or influence the overall outcome of a race by assisting others who are on normal bicycles (drafting, mechanical support, towing, pushing). Any protest or objections regarding the inclusion of E-bikes at an event will be solely the responsibility of the event organiser or race director and not the responsibility of the Cycling SA race commissaires. E-bike riders will be excluded from commissaire result sheets and/or verification. E-bikes are considered as mechanical doping and a contravention of UCI regulation 1.3.010. The potential sanctions are severe. Cycling South Africa Mountain Bike Regulations for 2018 (published in 2017) have expressly excluded E-Bikes into the regulations. 14.01.010 The use of electronically assisted bicycles (E-Bikes) are not permitted in any form of mountain bike events when run on the same course at the same time.
  6. Zamuxolo "Yster" Xatasi has been appointed as Acting President of Cycling South Africa by the Executive Committee (Exco) until the next elective congress in 2020. Photo credit: TourDeLimpopo/HaydsBrown Yster served as Vice President for two years, and prior to that he was Cycling SA’s Youth Transformation and Development Chair for two to three years. Cycling SA has been without a president since February 2018, when William Newman resigned and Secretary General Gregory van Heerden adopted the role of caretaker until such time as a new President was elected. After a call for nominations for the position of President, none of the applications received were deemed suitable by the Exco. Thereafter, the Exco reverted to the constitution, whereby Yster Xatasi will serve as Acting President until the next elective congress, which will be held in 2020.
  7. Secretary General Gregory van Heerden will care take the post until we place a call for nominations for the position of President. The nomination and manifesto will be approved by the Board. Cycling South Africa thanks Mr Newman for his unwavering commitment, dedication and input into the sport, specifically during trying recent times. Newman continues to serve on the continental Confederation of African Cycling Management Committee and at the highest level in the sport, the UCI (International Cycling Union) Track Management Committee. At the Cycling South Africa National Council Meeting that preceded the Annual General Meeting in Gauteng today, President William Newman resigned with immediate effect.

  9. Booth is a Chartered Accountant (CA) by qualification, has lived in Australia and London, and has had a connection with cycling most of his life. “I’ve always owned a bicycle. I used to commute to work when I lived in London. In Cape Town, we are so blessed with the routes that we can ride on. I’m just a normal, busy, middle-aged executive who gets involved in cycling when I can,” he said. Cycling South Africa takes great pleasure in welcoming the new Financial Treasurer, Robert Booth (right). Photo: Supplied. When chatting about his new appointment, Booth said: “As a keen cyclist, I’m enthusiastic about getting Cycling South Africa to fulfil their mandate of being a cycling organisation that represents the cyclists.“Being a CA, I thought that rather than sitting on the side lines, I’m going to actually put my money where my mouth is and try to make a positive contribution.” Booth acknowledged the importance of a Treasurer to any organisation, and with his experience of running an accounting practice, he will apply his knowledge and expertise to contribute positively towards the federation. “There are a lot of people out there who have good contributions to make for the sport, but they aren’t involved directly, and it’s easier to criticise from the outside,” he said. “I’m keen to put my point of view forward and back it up as well.” Booth said that when he gets involved in any task, he likes to make sure it gets done well. When chatting about his major goal, Booth said: “My major aim would be to put Cycling SA onto a sound financial footing, to be able to put systems in place that so that we know what we’re spending and earning, and we can do all we can to benefit the sport and the athletes.”
  10. The blue-ribbon event will kick off with the Team Time Trial, whereby competitors compete as part of their trade team. Thereafter, for the Individual Time Trial and the Road Races, riders will participate in their national colours. The Time Trial is scheduled to take place in Bergen and surrounding areas, with the Men’s Elite race finishing atop Mount Fløyen. It will be the first time that a World Championship Time Trial finishes on top of a mountain. The climb will be brutal on a 3.4-kilometre stretch with an average gradient of 9.1%. The Road Races will start in Øygarden and riders and spectators alike will celebrate the Norwegian coastal culture. The highlight of the race is the climb up “Salmon Hill” towards Mount Ulriken. National Team for the 2017 UCI Road World Championships (NOR) Elite Men: Daryl Impey Reinardt Janse van Rensburg Jaco Venter Willie SmitU23: Stefan de Bod Nicholas Dlamini Morne van Niekerk Elite Women: Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio Heidi Dalton Chane Jonker Junior Men: Devin Shortt Ryan Terry Jason Oosthuizen Junior Women: Ashleigh Parsons Tiffany Keep Elne Owen Nadia van Niekerk Heidi Dalton, Jaco Venter, Nicholas Dlamini, Stefan de Bod and Tiffany Keep have withdrawn from the team due to personal reasons. Cycling South Africa Road Commission Director, Bosseau Boshoff, said: “The World Championship route will suit a rider like Daryl Impey – it is not a climber’s course, but more of a sprinter’s course. When speaking to Robbie Hunter, he explained that the finish is likely to see a big group sprint, as the climbs are not difficult enough to split the race open. We have a strong team here, and every person that we’ve selected will perform well on this type of course.” Congratulations on your selection and good luck.
  11. On Monday, June 26, a group of KwaZulu-Natal event organisers representing most of the biggest cycling events in the province (both road and mountain biking) had the opportunity to meet with Cycling SA President William Newman. The purpose of the meeting was to openly discuss the current issues that Cycling SA are experiencing as an organisation and to hear first-hand from Mr Newman the true facts and current details relating to the governing body of SA cycling. The issues discussed included: Rider insurance; Financial operations; Cycling SA's business model; Cycling SA's staffing structures; Rider licenses. Both parties agreed after the meeting that there was an open, professional and honest discussion around these subjects. The race organisers have received a commitment from Cycling SA that the official body will be reviewing several issues discussed and will be reporting back to the group within a set time period. It was agreed by all that Cycling SA needed to review issues of sound financial management, corporate governance and better serving the riders of the sport. The meeting was constructive and thorough, and the race organisers believe Cycling SA recognizes that some key items need attention. Cycling SA have agreed, in conjunction with the events, to put in place a process of addressing the issues which need action in the short and long term. Once the timelines have been agreed and finalized, and when are able to communicate further with respect to specifics, Cycling SA and the race organisers will do so. KZN Cycling, the provincial body, stands alongside the event organisers in this regard, and as an affiliate of Cycling South Africa, are too working in the best interests of the sport to get the issues resolved. The intentions of the group of race organisers and interested parties is always to ensure that the sport of cycling – mountain biking, road riding and all other facets of the sport – is well governed through widely acceptable business principles. The race organisers represented included: Karkloof Classic, Sani2C, joBerg2C, Eston MTB, Berg & Bush, Sharks Trail Adventure, dusi2C, Tour Durban, Amashova, Hill2Hill and ROAG.
  12. In line with the International Cycling Union’s (UCI) stance on the use of disc brakes during domestic road races, Cycling South Africa’s Technical Commission reiterates our adherence to the regulations in place by the world governing body. Photo: DoubleST. The UCI has restarted their wide scale testing of disc brakes in the professional peloton to monitor certain aspects with a greater view to introducing it in all levels of the sport. However, during this testing phase, the current rules remain in place viz; disc brakes are banned in all domestic road and closed circuit racing. Cycling South Africa continues to monitor the progress of these developments at an international level. Cycling South Africa is not is a position to change those regulations until permitted to do so by the UCI. Update 25 June 2018: UCI Press Release Following nearly three years of tests, and in agreement with various stakeholders – teams, riders, mechanics, fans, commissaires, and the bicycle industry via the World Federation of the Sporting Goods Industry (WFGSGI) – the decision has been taken to authorise disc brakes for road and BMX Racing, as of 1st July this year. Point 1.3.025 of the UCI Regulations will be amended to this effect, to allow the use of disc brakes during training and competitions for road and BMX Racing, as is already the case for cyclo-cross, mountain bike, trials and mass participation events.
  13. We note the recent developments with regards to Cycling South Africa (CSA). As events and organizers, we are significant contributors through our events and clients (the rider) to the CSA model. In light of recent media reports, we would like to inform our clients and riders that we have requested a meeting with CSA. We have requested this meeting in order to establish certain facts, enquire about specific decisions and understand the processes that have (and will) be put in place to rectify certain aspects of the sports administration that needs attention. CSA immediately acknowledged our request and efficiently setup a meeting accordingly for the 26th June, where President William Newman will be meeting with the respective event representatives. While a lot has been said about CSA's financial position, as a group of KZN based events we feel It is important for us to note and acknowledge that Cycling KZN as a governing body is financially sound and operationally efficient, and we thank the respective volunteers who have put their personal time and effort into the organization to date. Our commitment as a group is to ensure that we represent our partners, clients and riders to the best of our ability in order to help facilitate a sport that is associated with good governance, financially sound principles and a governing body that is focused on growing the sport through good business principles.
  14. Cycling South Africa is pleased to announce that they have today signed an accord with SweetSpot to create an Elite International Road Cycling Stage Race to be held in South Africa in the first quarter of 2018. Click here to view the article
  15. The event will attract the world’s top professional teams to what is initially planned to be a six-day multi-stage race. One of the intentions of the event is to create investment into cycling through an overriding Non-Profit Organisation that will govern the event, and oversee the distribution of benefits generated by it. South Africa’s Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka (pictured here at the SA National Road Championships) and other International riders relish the opportunity to compete in an Elite International Road Cycling Stage Race on South African soil. The cycle tour, created by Cycling South Africa and SweetSpot, is scheduled to be held in the first quarter of 2018. Photo credit: Stuart Pickering/Cycling Direct William Newman, President of Cycling South Africa, said: “This is a significant milestone for Cycling South Africa as it fills a huge void on our racing calendar. Having this event will allow our very own Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka and our other International riders to participate on home soil, allowing the South African public to really see how good they are. The event will also allow our local riders the opportunity to participate against the best riders in the world. This will further encourage and motivate the youth to take up cycling as a sport, which is one of the key objectives of Cycling South Africa – to grow our sport and create opportunities for all. “With Cycling South Africa’s commitment to the development of women’s cycling, work will happen simultaneously on the presentation of a women’s event in the future. “Having a renowned company like SweetSpot on board with their extensive experience in presenting the Tour of Britain amongst other events, will ensure that we have a high quality event. “Besides the sporting benefits that the event brings it will also play a huge role in showcasing our beautiful country, thereby contributing to the tourism industry and boosting the economy. This further illustrates the role that cycling plays in the development of a nation. “We look forward to a great event of which we will all be proud.” Commenting on the announcement, Hugh Roberts, Chief Executive of SweetSpot Group said: “The team at SweetSpot are thrilled to have been invited to work with Cycling South Africa to create this potentially iconic road race. We have already taken soundings with several of the world’s top professional teams who are very keen to be involved, as many of them already come down to train in the off season. “A blue ribbon event in South Africa has been conspicuously absent for some time now and with their strong cycling heritage allied to an almost fanatical appetite for all things cycling they surely deserve a first-class race. “We look forward to being Cycling SA’s partner in this venture and will now be inviting commercial partners and brands from the highest echelons of the corporate world to join us in order to establish the firm foundations we need to create an enduring event of which South Africa can be proud.” Douglas Ryder, Team Principal: Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka concludes: “An official cycle tour in South Africa is long overdue. SweetSpot is known as an organisation that always goes out of its way to look after the teams and deliver in terms of quality and professionalism. We are proud to support them and Cycling South Africa to ensure that the race is sustainable for years to come. This cycle tour will undoubtedly showcase to the world what South Africa has to offer with our beautiful landscapes, talented local riders and cycling fans who love and support the sport of cycling.”

  19. Paul Meinking was taking part in the Men’s 60-64 Time Trial event on Wednesday afternoon when the incident took place. The driver of the heavy vehicle turned across the path of the rider into a nearby property, but then attempted to reverse back out of the driveway. It was here where Meinking (head down and focused on his race) did not notice the vehicle reversing ahead of him and collided into it. Meinking was assisted immediately by race emergency personal and taken to the nearest hospital. He is in a stable condition. Thank you to ThinkBike and the BMW Club Marshalls for keeping our riders safe, and to the swift response of the Helivac crew. Cycling South Africa wishes him a speedy recovery.
