The 2016 SA National Road, Time Trial and Para-cycling Championships, which is expecting to see some of the country’s biggest names in cycling on the start line, is just less than a month away, and brings with it two exciting competition venues on offer in sunny KwaZulu-Natal from 10-14 February.

The four-day 2016 competition will be taking place over five days in two supreme race venues. The Time Trial and the Para-cycling divisions will be hosted in the Wartburg / Noodsburg / Harburg area from 10-12 February, with the Road Races taking place in Westville/ Durban from 13-14 February. Great cycling stars will be heading to the province with guns blazing to compete for their chance at the “National Champion” title, and well-respected National Champion Jersey.

Race organiser, Kelvin du Sart says that it is all-systems go ahead of the event, and he is excited to have the SA Road Champs on KwaZulu-Natal’s roads once again. “From our side, we’re all ready to go – logistics, service providers – all A-for-away,” he said.

“And we’ve just had a look at the first batch of entries – names like Impey, Meintjes and Janse van Rensburg all coming through for it, so we’re going to be seeing a lot of the big guns,” he added.

Du Sart also stressed the importance of road closures to an event of this stature, and mentioned that there will be full closure of the M13 in Westville for the Road Races on Saturday and Sunday.

Online pre-entries are open, and close on Monday 1 February 2016 at midnight. Click here to enter.
