A good mixture between a social family affair and a competitive cycle race is expected at the 10th annual Grey College Cycle Race on Sunday.
The organiser of the prestigious cycle race, JD Ferreira, told Courant that participants can expect a bit of everything that has transpired over the last ten years.
“It is always a nice family affair. A lot of cyclist race for the fun while other semi-professional cyclists will fight it out for the bragging rights,” says Ferreira.
Last year the event attracted over 400 Cyclists from across the country. The former Cape-Argus tour winner, Tyler Day was narrowly beaten by his brother Dusty Day in a time of 2:20:14. Tyler had to settle for second place with a time of 2:20:39, while the exciting Juandre van Aswegen came in third place.
The race will start at 09:00 on Sunday and registration will take place on Saturday, 5 September 2015, from 08:00 until 10:00 at Grey College, Wooden Deck. For the latecomers, there will be an opportunity to register at 07:30 until 08:45 on race day. Late entries (on race day) will pay a late entry fee.
The race will take place over the following distances:100km (R150), 40km (R80) and 20km (R60).
Prize giving will take place at 12:00. Prize money for race winners, as well as lucky draws up for grabs (attendance required).
