Road Race (27-Oct)

MTB Race (26-Oct)


Welcome – to the home of the Carnival City Macsteel National Classic!

You are in the right place to find out more information about the Carnival City Macsteel National Classic cycle race (MTB and Road events), as well as a 5/10Km trail run.

The 36th edition of this popular East Rand classic is back, for a third time in the new Spring slot. Diarise 26-27 October 2019 now – our race weekend. It is perfectly placed 3 weeks before the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge, and one week after the Tsogo Sun Amashova Durban Classic. The road race will once again be a premier seeding event for the 2020 Cape Town Cycle Tour.

We’ve simplified the website to have as much information about each event on one page, and will require that you scroll up/down to find the information. Use the menu at the top of the page to select a specific page, or to return back here (click on Home, or the event logo).

New route

The same route used for 2018 will be used again for 2019, with a few more Traffic-free zones or Reduced Traffic zones. If we could get FULL ROAD CLOSURE we would do it, so instead we will work with the Ekurhuleni Metro Police to ensure areas with traffic-free, or reduced-traffic zones.

Hospitality & Post-event Entertainment

The usual post-race food and drinks (including a craft beer stall) will be on sale. Clubs can book a gazebo spot, and provide club members with an opportunity to relax, socialise and enjoy the post-race festivities.

Online entries and event details

The website will be updated with full details on all events taking place over the weekend of 26-27 October. For now, the basic information we can share is:
