To help alleviate the increasing demand for entries to the mighty-popular Coronation Double Century, cyclists will now have three opportunities to enter the 2017 edition. Here’s the skinny:
Tier 1 – PPA Entries. Race founders, the Pedal Power Association (PPA), have secured 40 entries for fully paid up PPA members at a cost of R9 200 per entry. These entries will become available from 1pm this Thursday (10 August). An additional five entries will be allocated to development clubs registered with PPA.
Tier 2 – Corporate Entries. 80 corporate entries are available and will cost R12 000 per team. These will be obtainable from 1pm on Monday, 14 August.
Tier 3 – General Entries. 100 general entries will be available at a cost of R9 200 per team from 1pm on Thursday, 17 August.
The 25th edition of the race will again take place in Swellendam (on 25 November 2017) where teams will be treated to a spectacular 202km course around the Overberg. Like last year, a neutral zone will be implemented owing to the ongoing road works along the route – this is to ensure the safety of all participants.
