Our cycling event, the Germiston Classic Cycle Race, formerly known as the Carnival City Macsteel National Classic, will be back on 30-31 October 2021. We are hard at work obtaining the necessary approvals and putting systems in place to be able to host a safe and enjoyable event, irrespective of the COVID restrictions in place at the time. This means changing a few things, for the better, as well as breathing some life into an event that has remained fairly static for the last few decades.
Our new event will be in the form of a Team Time Trial, similar to the Double Century and the Maluti Double 90. Teams of six riders will take on the Metric Century (100Km), while teams of ten riders will take on the Imperial Century (160Km).
Sadly we have to say goodbye to Carnival City as a title sponsor, due to budget constraints that were directly related to the (less than ideal) economy. We wish to thank them for their support for close on 2 decades, and hope to welcome them back in the near future.
We have secured a new venue (known as the Circus Coffee Shop to the locals), which means that our event will feature a new route too. We hope to reveal our plans once we’ve got the necessary approvals from the SAPS (Risk Classification), the local Municipality (permission to use the public roads and more). Macsteel will remain on as our Principle Sponsor.
We are extremely excited about the new event, and are optimistic it will be the usual well organised, and safe race that participants come to expect from us.
