The organisers of the the L’Etape Cycle Tour and Cycling SA met on Thursday 30 March 2017.
All factors have been discussed and considered, as well as what would be in the best interests of those participants that have secured an event entry. We have received confirmation that the 21km stretch of road that is currently under repair will be completed and deemed safe for participants in an event of this nature.
Both parties have agreed to a possible date in the next six to eight weeks, a confirmation of the date will be advised shortly.
In the interim, the parties will be looking at alternative routes in the area, should there be any further delays due to unforessen circumstances in the repair of the stretch of road.
Cycling SA once again re-iterates that we have confirmed our commitment to the event and look forward to working with the organisers, and we will assist where we can to ensure a successful and premier event is delivered.
