CT Cycle Tour adds more entry spots due to demand

Missed out on securing an entry for the 40th edition of the Cape Town Cycle Tour?

You can count yourself lucky that organisers have decided to release a limited number of unclaimed entries on Friday 9 September at 9am.

600 extra entries will be made available on a first come first serve basis, explains Cape Town Cycle Tour CEO David Bellairs.

We will time stamp the first 600 that apply and they will be given the opportunity to enter.

SA’s most iconic cycling event will take place on Sunday 12 March 2017.
