PB Track Challenge 2019
The historic Paarl Boxing Day Track Challenge takes place for the 122nd time this year.
It’s Africa’s largest track cycling event and it is the oldest cycling event in the world. The meeting has not skipped a year since its inception in 1897.
The event attracts South Africa’s top professionals as well as a host of international riders who tackle each other for a share of the R100 000 prize purse in front of a capacity crowd at the Faure Street Stadium in Paarl. Boxing Day is not only the biggest track cycling event in South Africa, but also one of the most spectated in-stadium sporting events in South Africa.

Trouble with your CSA Membership or License?
We often get complaints about participants unable to enter due to a message about invalid CSA membership or license during the online registration process. Our system verifies both your CSA membership and CSA domestic racing license to be valid on the day of the event. Licenses expire on 31 December each year, so you should get a new 2020 license for this event. Membership expires 1 year after your last renewal or purchase. This date could be prior to the event date. Carefully review both expiry dates before contacting us.
New membership or licenses, including renewals, can be purchased online on the CSA membership page.
