Bicycling (South Africa) - - RACE DIARY - THE NEW FRON­TIER

With a mostly flat and fast course, this race of­fers speed and thrills across its 100km and 40km cour­ses. There are a few short climbs; most fa­mously, the ones up Al­brecht Street and Lu­cas Steyn Road, which will spice up the race – es­pe­cially for those who fancy them­selves as puncheurs, and want to stoke their pro fan­tasies with some at­tack­ing rac­ing.

The 40km dis­tance joins the long route just be­fore the Lu­cas Steyn Road climb. The 100km dis­tance is a Pre­mier Seed­ing Se­ries event for the 2018 Cape Town Cy­cle Tour. 5 NOVEM­BER, SA SCHOOL OF AR­MOUR, TEMPE MIL­I­TARY BASE, BLOEM­FONTEIN, 100KM, 40KM
