Meerendal loses prologue then but gets the grand finish.

I'd like to see how Meerendal is going to cope with all the traffic. A staggered prologue where most of the riders are done by the time the pro's start proved to be a strain on the Meerendal logistics team in the last few years. I would think that there would be 2 to 3 times more traffic for the finish. Wellington to Meerendal? Perhaps a little dirt road to Rheebokskloof, a little more dirt road to Hoogekraal and this year's prologue route in reverse, i.e. up the quarry and down stairway?

As always a really tough day 2 / stage 1. Typical Epic tactic to weed out the under-prepared riders early on although these types of riders reduce in number each year.

jip.. it screws up your revenue model when you aim to get rid of 25% of the field by day 3 and then only 12% fell out.

I know it appears that way, but does it really?

 

Entries paid for lumpsum upfront, not per day.

more tents to be put up(by volunteers)

more food for dinner(donated, surely)

 

if anything more people in the village spins more cash through all the retail stuff they have setup on site.
