Please note that due to the date of the elections KwaZulu-Natal Cycling has needed to move the South African Junior and Youth Road Championships to 22 and 23 June 2019.

Due to the National Elections the regional authorities notified KZN Cycling that they could not guarantee the availability of law enforcement to assist during the weekend of 11-12 May, and for this reason, another suitable date needed to be found.

KZN Cycling in working with Cycling South Africa looked for a date that would be suitable to most considering the following events and factors:

  • School Holidays

  • School Exams

  • Comrades Marathon in KZN on 8 June

  • KZN Cycling hosting 2 x SA XCO Series events with UCI status on the weekend of the 15 and 16 June

  • The Junior Tour of Ireland, which is a popular event for Junior Riders, begins on 9 July.

We understand that finding a date that suits all parties is impossible, but we believe that the date selected is the most practical and will suit the majority.

KZN Cycling is excited to host this prestigious Cycling South Africa event and look forward to some great racing.
