Race info

Die Burger PPA Cycle Tour:  1 December 2013 @ Stellenbosch High School (please scroll down for venue & parking map)

PLEASE NOTE:

    There will be gates at the start venue that each entrant must pass through in order to access the start area. Please arrive at least 60 minutes before your start time.

To be allowed access, each entrant must have the following 5 items:

1. Official Race Number. To be worn low down on your back. You may not ride with your PPA fun ride number as this is not a standard PPA fun ride.
2. RaceTec/Winning Time chip. Wear the chip only on your ankle (with a Velcro strap) or on the front wheel (quick release) using the special bike mount pointing towards the ground.
3. Bicycle Sticker. This will be in your race pack and must be peeled off and stuck to your bicycle.
4. Helmet.
5. Start card. This will be in your race pack. Do not hand it in at the first gate you pass through. Hand it to the marshal when you enter your allocated start chute.

If you are not in possession of any of these 5 items, you will be directed to the Info Tent where you will be given a replacement. This may take time so it is best to make sure that you don’t forget anything at home.

Timing:
If you have purchased a RaceTec chip online and have not collected it at another event, you can collect it from the RaceTec table at Registration. Please note that it is compulsory to wear a chip for this event. You will not be allowed to start the event without one.
* If you haven’t purchased a RaceTec chip yet, you may buy one for R120 at the RaceTec counter during Registration.
