What happens if I do return a positive Rapid Antigen Test?
You will be advised to consult with your doctor and to isolate immediately according to Covid-19 guidelines. If you believe that the test is a false positive, you will have the right to undergo a PCR test at a facility of your choice and, in the event that it is negative, present that at registration.
What happens if I am under-18?
If you are under-18 you will need to undergo a Rapid Antigen Test unless you can show proof of being fully vaccinated overseas.
You will need to bring a signed letter from your Parent or Guardian giving consent to the Rapid Antigen Test.
Can I do substitutions?
The Subsititution process is now closed
What happens if I have lost my Racetec chip?
A Racetec counter will be available as you enter the Registration area where you can either check the status of your existing chip or buy a new chip. The cost of a chip is R150.
Will there be an expo?
Yes, held alongside registration at the DHL Stadium from 10 -12 March, the Cape Town Cycle Tour Lifecycle Expo Powered by Nashua, has over the last three decades been a celebration of everything cycling, health and fitness under one roof.
Will there be a Goodie Bag?
