SEEDING

Road Classic

Seeding of the Road Classic is done according to the ASG Cycle National Seeding Index for all online entries and pre-entries received and paid before relevant closing dates. 
Please note that if you haven’t taken part in an ASG event, you can go onto the ASG Event site and can select an event from one of our predetermined external (non ASG) events, which took place within the last year, and add in your details and finishing time.

The system will automatically calculate your seeding based on the finishing time and nature of the event.
If you are already ranked on the ASG Seeding system, you can also add in your results from these non ASG Events if you have taken part in them and feel they will improve your seeding.

MTB Classic

Seeding for the MTB Classic will be done according to SA seeding.

LATE ENTRIES

Late line entries will only be accepted at the registration venues as indicated, not on the day of the race.

A penalty fee of R60 will be applicable for all distances on the MTB as well as the road events.
