It’s Team Time Trial again! Time for you and your pals to get together and test yourself against the clock.
This year we’ve decided to include an individual time trial for those who want to go it alone!
Teams of 6 riders each will race around a 30 kilometre circuit twice. How fast can you and your mates ride over fast flat 60 kilometres? Which TEAM will have the bragging rights to being the fastest club in the Cape?
Teams of 6 riders will tackle the circuit twice with the time for the team being recorded when the 4th rider crosses the finish line.
The individual time trial will take place over the same course, however this will only be one lap of 30km.
This event does not form part of the WP League.
The race will start in 3 groups:
- Individual TT – 8:00am
- Women Team TT – 8:25am
- Men Team TT – 8:30am

Covid 19 Regulations
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 the Registration Venue.
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.
Categories and seeding
Due to the nature of this event, and the possibility of team mates being allocated into different categories, we will not use the normal categorisation for this event. However, your selection of category during this event will carry through to the races during the rest of the year and automatically be applied to those races.
The 2022 season will follow the same categories as 2021. In most instances participants will already be allocated to fixed categories based on past races.
Routes and distances
Team members for the Team Time Trial may consist of all age categories from u/17 and older. All teams compete over 60km.
A separate Ladies competition will be dependent on the number of Ladies Teams entered, however we also allow mixed teams in this race.
THE LADIES TEAM TIME TRIAL WILL TAKE PLACE OVER 30KM AND NOT 60KM AS PREVIOUSLY ADVERTISED
The individual time trial will take place on the same route however it will be limited to one lap of 30km. However the U17’s cannot take part in the individual time trial as it is further than the maximum distance laid down by CSA and UCI.
This information will be made available closer to the time once teams have been submitted for seeding.
Entries close the Thursday night prior to the race at 18h00
The cost for this race is R200 per person.
