Start Procedure – Cape Town Cycle Tour

Start Procedure

In line with the guidelines issued by the authorities and CSA around mass participation sporting events and to assist with the managing of uncontrolled gatherings before the start, the Cape Town Cycle Tour has devised plans for TRANSITION AREAS from which cyclists will be released to head down towards the start line.

There are six (6) of these Transition Areas through which participants will be guided before heading down to the start line and the timing mats for a rolling start.

The letters A, B, C, D, E or F on their race number will indicate each rider’s Transition Area.

For example if the race number is: 5C 52107
• 5 is the start wave number,
• C is the Transition Area designation
• 52107 is the race number

Each rider’s riding time will only start once they have crossed the actual timing mat marked by the Garmin Squad shortly after the start arch.

NB note to riders: It is extremely important to plan your ride to the Transition Area very carefully. Plan to arrive at your Transition Area no more than10 min before your transition release time. This release time will be given to you when you receive your final event number email confirmation.

Please ensure, that at all times, you adhere to all requisite Covid-19 protocols and marshals instructions.• Wear your mask at all times. You may remove your mask approximately one (1) minute before your transition release time.
