We are very excited to host the Stihl 2016 SA Cup Series XCO #2 race at Helderberg Farm on the 27th of February 2016. We are combining this event with the WC XCO #3 Cup Race and all our Western Cape riders need to enter through the Cycling SA website: https://entries.cyclingsa.com/.
We are acutely aware that the entry fee is much more than the usual WC race entry fee – this is due to an extra day at the track on Friday with official practice and registration as well as additional infrastructure needed for a national race with UCI status. Please note that registration and late entries will be from 9:00 to 16:00 on Friday, 26 February 2016. The course will be open for practice from 10:00 to 16:00 on Friday only. On Saturday, 27 February 2016, there will only be number pick-up from 6:30 – 7:00. There will be no course practice. The first race starts at 8:00
The Western Province Mountain Bike Commission consists of 12 committee members. The Commission is not an events company and do not host the cup series for profit. The committee members are mostly parents of XCO and DHI riders that dedicate their “free time” to the XCO and DHI disciplines of Mountain Biking. We appeal to all the parents to get involved in hosting the provincial races. No, you don’t have to attend all our committee meetings but we do need you to assist us at the races to make it happen and run smoothly. We don’t have the budget to hire staff and the workload is not sustainable to be done by the committee alone. We are in dire need of parents to volunteer for Saturday’s SA Series Race #2/WC XCO #3 Race.
Please contact the following committee members to volunteer:
Registration Volunteers: Contact Adelle at firstname.lastname@example.org
Marshal Volunteers: Contact Allan at email@example.com
