 Event management and online entries made possible by

CSA Membership and licenses

This is a provincial race and sanctioned under Cycling South Africa, therefore the applicable rules by CSA, and by extension the UCI, will apply. Participants must have a CSA Membership or a Day License. The requirement for a CSA domestic racing license has been wavered by the provincial body for this race.

In each case a reference to the CSA General Organisation of the Sport, Part 1 (effective 19.02.2019) and Part 3 (effective 25.02.2019), applies;

CSA Membership (as per 1.1.6)  means a licence issued to any cyclist who wishes to participate in a Cycling SA sanctioned event, irrespective of any other licence which that member may hold. (As per 1.2.11) A Membership Licence allows a cyclist to compete in all sanctioned cycling events including inter-provincial events Provincial Championships and league races, excluding National Championships.

Thus, all participants must be in a possession of a CSA Membership (or a day license) to participant.

Day Licenses (as per Day Licence which is issued to a cyclist not holding at least a valid and current Membership Licence or who is unable to produce a valid and current licence upon being requested to do so.

Day licenses can now be purchased on-line at Cycling South Africa’s Membership page. Log in, go to the Profile menu option and use the Purchase button on that page. Select Day Licenses, enter your name and city, then select “Western Cape Road and TT Championship” and tick the appropriate days. You might need 2 day licenses if taking part in both the TT and Road events.

This is a new arrangement and your day license might not be picked by our system yet. If you experience problems entering on this site with such a day license please forward us the day license(s) by email to [email protected] so that we can manually register the day license on this system.

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.
