Hi guys, I was speaking to friends over the weekend and was told the East Rand Classic (supposed to be on 5 April) has been cancelled.

 

There has been nothing about cancellation on their social media pages or website but the cycleevents entry page has been removed: http://www.cycleevents.co.za/road-events/takealot-east-rand-classic/#more-22066.

 

Was keen to do this event but looks like its not happening now? anyone have more info on what the story is?

I was planning my trip for this over the weekend, then got onto Cyclevents this morning before seeing this and noticed its gone... its shame, was a good event and would have been ideal before the Maluti.

 

Will probably have to do the Joburg Classic now.

Dont know how they have money problems. All you win at the events is a voucher to spend at their shop. Which you cant use on discounted items. And everything is always discounted :-(

CGC or should that be SGC now,  are not aware its been cancelled, Entries were open for a while so surely by now those that have already entered should have been notified.

And even at their "discounted price" the prices are still 15-25% higher than everywhere else in SA  :whistling:

Entries are too high and people expect too much.

 

I hope that we soon get back to doing races/rides that offer value for money. Who needs fully stocked feed zones and being carried in the lap of luxury?

 

What happend to Water points that had just that, or maybe a few jelly beans/babys. Less effort/cost on manicuring the trails. Damn, cut a narrow walking trail and the riders ride it.

 

All these races/rides (including the Epic) are normally less than 100km so you take two sachets of drink mix and you are sorted.

 

Lets get real again.
