Entry fees for this year’s championship is based on a per-event bases, which departs from the fixed fees charged in earlier years. The reason for this is two-fold;
- Participants enter as many events as possible during registration, but then either cancel or do not show up for the events on the day. This affects the organiser’s ability to effectively plan the race program, as each event need to take into account the planned number of participants. As a result last-minute changes to the program causes additional work for administrators and officials and cause confusion and negatively affects the athletes in their preparation for their events.
- Access to funding for national events like this have been in a steady decline over the years. This is evident in the willingness of provinces to host these events. Western Cape Cycling is committed to hosting a proportional share of these national events to further the sport, but it requires funding to do so. With a projected budget of over R300,000 in expenses to host this event we need to rely on the cycling community to contribute towards these costs.
The fee structure is based on the number of events each person will participate in in accordance with the fee structure listed below.
|Number of events||Price|

Starting with an initial, compulsory fee of R50, the first 4 events will cost an additional R100 per event, then event 5 to 6 will cost an additional R75 each, then event 7 to 10 will cost an additional R50 each and thereafter at R25 each.

The Omnium is included in the costing for the Championship and is therefore treated as an additional event according the the above price schedule. This makes it much cheaper to enter for this 5 race event!
