I was recently privileged to sit in on some of the planning sessions for this year’s event. All I can say is that this year’s Cape Classic 380 promises to be bigger, better and more spectacular than ever before. I have been involved with many events as a planner and participant and I can honestly say that I have never come across a group of people more passionate than these!
Tony and his wife Hazel Pushman and Craig Edwards are a team like no other and they run their event with flawless perfection. I am personally going to make every effort to be a part of what promises to be a world-class event later in the year.
The 3-day stage event has been running annually in November in the Montagu district since 2013 and has become one of South Africa’s best-loved and most scenic stage races due to the stunning routes and highly committed team of volunteers who run it. The event attracts riders of all types of fitness from all over the country and the globe. Included in the participants are road and mountain bike enthusiasts as well as competitive professional cyclists.
The support is impeccable and it has been said that this is one of the safest rides due to the protection of the peloton riding experience with a professionally trained ‘Think Bike’ moto outrider accompanying the peloton as well as motor vehicle support.
For some, it’s not all fun and games, however, as the CC380 attracts some serious competitors with daily King and Queen of the Mountains and Points jerseys awarded for racing snakes.
Nutrition, medical and mechanical stations are offered en route with the option to enjoy a relaxing sports massage before joining other riders over a glass of wine daily.
In order to keep this event exclusive and intimate, the event’s organizers have limited their numbers for this year to 60 riders only; so don’t delay in securing your entry in this event as the spaces fill up fast and you most certainly do not want to miss out!
The organizers have offered a special reduced rate for the first 25 entrants, so please contact them or myself to book your place and mention that you heard about the event through me as they are making a donation to my charity: African Angel’s for every ticket sold through me.
