IMPORTANT ROUTE UPDATE

Due to a delay in the completion of the N7 road works between Van Schoorsdrift and Vissershok - originally due to be completed at the end of January - the N7 will no longer form part of the race route.

This decision was made in close and ongoing collaboration with the City, traffic authorities and road contractors, in the interest of your safety. And, in keeping with event planning best practices the organisers have developed detailed alternative route plans, which has been approved by the authorities. You will be able to enjoy a safe and exciting new route this year.

Long route participants will now see the legendary Vissershok climb coming up in the early stages of the race, while the flatter and faster short route excludes the Vissershok climb.

Please CLICK HERE https://www.99er.co.za/index.php/cycle-tour/routes for the updated route maps and route descriptions.

All cyclists who entered the race will receive a mail from Cycle Events today with seeding and race number collection information as well as communication about the amended route.

Thank you for your understanding. As always, your safety comes first!

We're still waiting for our SCT "discount" mails to come through. To my ears (and wallet) R180.00 sounds a lot better than R360.00 .... :whistling:​ 

 

It now seems that the Facebook Post regarding the discount was a hoax.  :blush:

Not cool, but seeing that the SCT was cancelled, i think this will be my next challenge to get a good seeding for the CTCT

This will only count for 2021 CTCT seeding. Seems the Paarl tour is the last chance for this years seeding .

That's what they say, but it will definitely be used for this year's CTCT as well.

Not necessarily, some years they do other years they don't. But I guess with SCT being cancelled the odds are a bit better that they will.

UPDATE:  Additional Seeding Events for the 2020 Cape Town Cycle Tour

 

As a result of the unfortunate cancellation of the Medihelp Stellenbosch Cycle Tour this past weekend the organisers of the Cape Town Cycle Tour are pleased to announce that, as a special concession the Gryphon 99er Cycle Tour due to be held on the 8th of February 2020 will now be included as a Premier Seeding Series Event for the 2020 Cape Town Cycle Tour. We understand what an important role the Medihelp Stellenbosch Cycle Tour plays for a lot of cyclists in improving their seeding for the Cycle Tour, and this now means that you will have an additional opportunity to improve your start time before the big day on 8th March 2020.

 

We know that many of our Western Cape based participants preparation for the Cycle Tour were affected by the cancellation and we would like to encourage them to use the opportunity to participate in any of the following two upcoming Seeding Series events still to be held in the Western Cape:

Its easier, untill the last ~10km

I kept thinking to myself this weekend that it's called the 99'er but is 102km in distance.

 

Is that because the race only really begins at 99km when you have to tackle Vissershok Rd and Odendaal?
