Racing will be in the opposite direction to what we usually race. We will be catering for Categories 1, 2 and 3, as well as women and all of the youth categories. U19’s will have their own race and not race with Category 1.
As it’s Youth Day, we would love to see all of our youngsters joining in the fun! This will be one of the events for Youth selection for Oudtshoorn and the SA Youth Festival.
There will be strict COVID protocols in place for this event.
We are still required to adhere to the COVID-19 regulations that have been published by the Department of Sport and Culture. To this end we require that all cyclists maintain social distancing while not racing. The use of masks prior to the start of the race is compulsory. You will be required to have your temperature taken at the entrance to Killarney. All participants and supporters are to use Gate 5 – the one closest to Cape Town, to enter the grounds. Upon arriving at registration, ALL people attending the race are required to fill out the COVID screening forms. From there, you are to move to the registration tables where the race staff will take your temperature again, fill it in on the form and issue you with a paper bracelet which is to be worn at all times in and around the racing areas. Masks are also to be worn at all times and it is imperative that we adhere to the social distancing protocols.
We are looking at ways to work within the bounds laid down by CSA and the Department of Sport and Culture to ensure that we can hold a successful event.

Problems with CSA Membership or Licenses?
See the page about CSA membership or licenses, or if you have problems with this during the registration process. NOTE: A CSA Full Domestic Racing License is required for Cat 1 for this race.
All people attending the race are to enter Killarney through the southern most gate – Gate 5. You will have your temperature checked at this point. From there you are to proceed to the parking area behind the new pits. From here, you will have to come through the race COVID screening station at the entrance to the pits. Participants and spectators alike will have to fill in the COVID questionnaire and have their temperature taken for a second time. Unfortunately, both Killarney and WPCA have to keep records of those entering the premises so please do not feel that you can circumvent the checks at the pit area.
