No 2018 Stellenbosch Cycle Tour

Pure Savage's Photo Pure Savage 19 Jul 2018

So, it seems that the Tour of Stellenbosch has been moved to the 27th of Jan 2019. Wonder if some of the factors that we mentioned in our article gave rise to this?

 

Going to be nice not to have fried legs from DC, but will have Xmas cake on the hips!!

Not sure which is worse ... :(
Could recover from DC, but the festive season damage is a certainty. :)

X Mas cake is not my friend, it sits in the caravan staring at me then boom, 2 cakes GONE!! Ugh, self control is going to be required. Also have  a few weddings as well.

Always thought this race has the potential to be almost a mini-CTCT if the authorities & organisers showed some ambition and got some road closures for the second largest cycle event in the WC

 

Clearly this is not going to happen anytime soon

 

But I guess the new date will attract people preparing for the CTCT, will probably hurt the 99er?

Well that is last years date. 

 

Think the PPA had it in their news letter.

Maybe it was the competition of the other races around Nov that kept them pushing it out and out, resulting in ending up in Dec, at which stage some people might rather want to go on leave than stay for a bike race.

 

Also if you look on the Pedalpower website, the 2nd of Dec is already booked for the Cyclo sportif #4 (new date)

 

And doubt they would have the two races on the same day / weekend

Cyclosportif #4 on 2 December is a dead giveaway
