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 35th edition of this popular East Rand classic is back, for a third time in the new Spring slot. Diarise 27-28 October 2018 now – our race weekend. It is perfectly placed 3 weeks before the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge (the revised route), and one week after the Tsogo Sun Amashova Durban Classic. The road race will once again be a premier seeding event for the 2018 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).
We are excited to announce that our 2018 road race (the 35th edition) will feature a completely new route, with a phrase we’re going to claim: 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.
Developing Cyclists initiative
Part of Germiston Wheeler’s initiative to “Develop Riders” has been extended beyond their local community to include a 30% discount for all riders who are 19 years of age and younger at 31 December 2018. The initiative is planned to help develop and encourage young riders in the sport. It applies to both girls and boys – entries can be done online like normal.
Online entries open today for the road and MTB events. The Trail run will open in August (we’re still busy finalising details with a new sponsor).
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 our musicians for the day, Dagdroom – a West Rand-based Rock and Roll band made up of a stellar cast of musicians, each with more than a decade of experience in the industry, will be playing live at the hospitality area. They focus on Afrikaans, Rock and Roll, Indie and Pop music and aim to release well-composed, original work to the public on a regular basis.
