Life Path Health is again sponsoring the next time trial event, which will again be held at the Du Vlei Farm Stall just outside Hermon (Wellington area) and feature a 3-man time trial event.
See the Life Path Health website for more information about our sponsor.
- Individual Time Trial – Elites – Long distance
- Individual Time Trial – Females
- Individual Time Trial – Other males
- Team Time Trial – Males – Long distance
This event, and the TT series, will run on the basis of age categories but those riders who are taking part in the WP Autumn and Winter League series will have their results carried over towards their overall standings in Cat 1,2,3. Please note again below the changes made to points due to the addition of the team time trial.
Team Time Trial
Teams of 3 riders may take part in the Team Time Trial, and in the next event we will make the team size larger. The time will be taken on the third rider. Teams will follow the long route.
Due to the additional categories and the team format all position points (individual and team) will be halved (and rounded down where applicable), so the first position in the individual time trial the rider will earn 9 points, followed by 8, 7, 7, etc. However, the first team will earn 9 points for each rider, followed by 8 points for each rider in the second team, etc.
Course and distances
Elites individual – and team time trial – 46.6km
The course will run from the Du Velde Farm Stall towards Hermon, where you will make a u-turn, pass the start towards Riebeek Kasteel, where you will make another u-turn at the second turnoff to the town, return to the start and repeat the circuit one more time.
Other categories – 23.3km
The course will run from the Du Velde Farm Stall towards Hermon, where you will make a u-turn, pass the start towards Riebeek Kasteel, where you will make another u-turn at the second turnoff to the town, and finish at the start.

Race entry – Entries close Saturday, 2pm
- The registration process will ask for a category. Please select your normal league category (or TT if you only ride in this series).
- Riders that want to ride in team format must send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate the names of the riders in your team, otherwise you will be entered as individual riders.
The full price entry has been discounted to R150, with additional discounts for WP Cycling affiliated clubs and to riders 18 years and younger. R35 will be levied for a CSA day license if you do not have a CSA membership. You may opt out of this if you email us a copy of your valid CSA license.
Any registrations received after this point will be slotted into the open time slots as described later.
Sign-on no later 30 mins before your scheduled start time and arrive at the start gate no later than 5 mins before your scheduled start. Late arrival at any one of these points may cause a delay in your start, or in some cases we would not be able to start you at all.
Late registration and sign-on will start at 7:30am and will close 30mins prior to the first start of your age category. Due to the nature of time trial events we are limited the number of late registration riders. We recommend you register online so that you can be placed on the start list. Note there will be a late registration fee of R100, so we recommend you register online to save costs too.
Parking is available at the farm stall.
