We are now in November and the province that i am licensed with can't tell me where or when it is going to be held. Surely it can not be that hard to set a date and venue in advance?

 

Does anyone have any more info on SA's for 2012, i have sent a mail to an employee at CSA but i am not expecting an answer as i am still waiting for a response on an issue at SA's this year.

Hi Spinnekop, i was aware of these dates but according to my province these dates are not confirmed and neither has the venue, hence my post.....but thanks in any case. If we were to go according to this info, why then was Liefie Day from Klerksdorp requested to put a proposal together if she is not near Nelspruit or Kwazulu Natal?

 

Based on those dates, i won't be able to make the trip to Cape Town for world champs and then again to Natal the week later for SA's...

Witch says that Junior and Elite ladies do the 110km route.

 

SA Cycling then posted:

 

http://www.cyclingsa.com/Article.aspx?uid=613

 

This one then says: "with the Elite and U23 men covering a distance of 170km whilst the Elite and junior women and junior men will complete 80km."

 

Not sure now?

 

Elite men and U23 - doing 160km or 170km?

 

Junior men and Elite ladies - doing 80km or 110km?
