South African Track Grand Prix Series heads to Durban in August

Cycling South Africa is proud to present the South African Track Grand Prix and National Series, with rounds one and two taking place in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, at the Cyril Geoghegan Cycle Track from 7-9 August 2016. The event is classified as a UCI CL 2 event, drawing attention not just from South Africa, but other African countries as well in a bid to afford our track cyclists the opportunity to earn valuable UCI points at a local event.

The never-ending “summer” of the City of Durban will provide a warm welcome to all during the August days. A lucrative prize purse of over R60 000 will entice the track cycling stars, and perhaps some newcomers to the sport, to rise above their peers for a shot at the prize.

This event will be run under the auspices of Cycling South Africa and KwaZulu-Natal Cycling and the UCI Rules (Version 15.03.16) will be enforced. Under-10s to under-U16s will be allowed to enter on presentation of a Cycling SA Membership, whereas Masters can enter on presentation of a Cycling SA Domestic Racing Licence. Junior and Elite category riders require an International Racing Licence to enter.

The under-10, under-12 and under-14 riders may race together, depending on the amount of entries, but separate medals per age category will be awarded. Under-16 boys and girls will race together for the bunch races but will also receive separate medals per category.

Entries for the South African Track Grand Prix Series 1&2 are open and close on Friday 15 July 2016 - no late entries will be accepted. Without a signed indemnity form, riders will not be permitted to race.
