Into the unknown – covid19
In these uncertain times, we are unsure whether the 2020 Carnival City Macsteel National Classic Road race and MTB events will take place. The provisional dates are 24-25 October 2020. It doesn’t mean that we aren’t hard at work planning for the event, but rather unsure at this stage. Until we know what we need to do as an organiser, we cannot open entries for the events. As cyclists ourselves, we’d like nothing more than to see racing return to the calendar, as well as host you at our event.
From our enquiries, Sport bodies have until 30 June 2020 to submit their resumption plans to the department for approval. As our events are sanctioned by CyclingSA, we guess this means they will be doing this, and we will get the necessary instruction from them.
If we are able to offer a safe event, that complies to the relevant guidelines and regulations, we will open the online entry process.
Keep up to date with news from the event by following us on social media:
In the meanwhile, enjoy the feeling of riding your bike as fast or slow as you like. We’ll leave you with these quote from the legend that is Eddie Merckx:
- “Ride as much or as little, as long or as short as you feel. But ride” – Eddy Merckx
- “Don’t buy upgrades, ride up grades” – Eddy Merckx
