Has everybody got this World Cup money making idea? Pricing for the event seems a bit steep. No sorry they are to steep.

 

Maybe contact the PPA and get an idea on pricing for the different distances.

Yip, for a brand new event...competing with existing (better priced events) this one will get a skip from me!

Anybody doing the race this coming Sunday? Apart from any complaints about entrance fees (see above posts from last year), how was the actual race itself last year? Thinking of doing the 35km if I've got some legs left after the Swartland MTB the day before and no doubt a couple of beers during the rugby.

I think I`d rather do the same 35km route on the Sunday after for a wopping R20. The longer routes will be fun I think but I`m still recovering from cracked ribs.

Saw this one their site re the 10K route...I'm sure there's a couple of SSers here that would disagree!

 

"10km: Advice to riders: Although there are no major climbs, this route is not suited for single speed bicycles."

 

I see there's a bit of rain forecast for Sunday...should make it fun. I was keen to ride but after TB last weekend will probably just hit Jonkies for 20 bucks instead.

I actually DID ride last year! After all my complaints & all!! I'm compulsive that way :blush:

 

The route was great...The prize giving was even better - they had loads of brandy hampers (in those little casks with engravel label of the race...) and lucky draws as well...guess that's what you pay for!!?

 

 

Not a bad event to do.
