Western Cape Cycling is proud to announce its annual Track Championship for 2022. The Western Province Cycling Association has again offered to host the event at the “house of pain”, the Bellville Velodrome.
The Championships will be held in accordance with the regulations of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) unless otherwise ruled by the National Federation. The racing format may also be modified at the discretion of the President Commissaire in response to prolonged stoppages with the possibility of events being cancelled due to insufficient time to complete them.

Trouble with online registration?
If you experience problems trying to enter, please disable any ad-blockers you may have installed and/or try using a modern browser, such as Chrome, Firefox or Safari. Internet Explorer is by far the worst option.
Cycling SA Membership and licenses
This is a provincial race and sanctioned under Cycling South Africa, therefore the applicable rules by Cycling SA, and by extension the UCI, will apply. Participants must have a Cycling SA full racing license or a Cycling SA Membership.
Cycling SA Racing License means a license issued to any cyclist who wishes to participate in a Cycling SA sanctioned event, irrespective of any other license which that member may hold. (As per 1.2.11) A Full Racing License allows a cyclist to compete in all sanctioned cycling events including inter-provincial events Provincial Championships and league races.
Thus, all participants must be in a possession of a Cycling SA Full Racing License or a CSA Membership to participant. Day licenses will not be allowed.
Trouble with your Cycling SA License?
We often get complaints about participants unable to enter due to a message about invalid Cycling SA license during the online registration process. Our system verifies both your Cycling SA membership and Cycling SA domestic racing license to be valid on the day of the event. Licenses expire on 31 December each year, so you should have a new 2022 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 Cycling SA membership page.
Due to the uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 epidemic, the organisers of the Western Cape Track Cycling Championships reserve the right to cancel the race should circumstances dictate. If we cancel the race 7 or more days before the time (on or before 23 September 2022) we will refund those who have entered 60% of their race fee. Anytime after that, we will refund 30% of your entry fee. Alternatively, arrangements can be made with the registration team to carry the race fee over to the rescheduled event. Should you request a refund, when the rescheduled event is announced, you will be required to pay the full amount again.
Entrants who cancel their entries 7 or more days before the time (on or before 23 September 2022) will be refunded 30% of their entry fee. Cancellations in the 7 days prior to the event, or on the day itself, will not be refunded.
If you have any questions or having trouble entering online, please send an email to [email protected]. Your email will be answered by Jaco, Nigel, Sue or Christhonie. Please keep in mind we all work full time so may only get round to answering your email after hours.
