As the world’s biggest bike race, with more than 35 000 starters, the Cape Town Cycle Tour is not in a position to take ‘late entries’. In fact, the available entries tend to sell out within a few hours when the system opens in September each year. But life gets in the way, sometimes, and good intentions turn into entries for sale. Here is the ONLY way you can legally take over another rider’s number.
If you are the new entrant, taking the place of the rider withdrawing:
The substitution procedure applies only to South African citizens (international entrants should have no problem entering before 31 January 2020, and does not apply to group entrants, who must contact their group administrator in order to facilitate a substitution. Substitution carries a cost of R260. To take over the valid entry you will need to have the surname, first name and date-of-birth of the person withdrawing. And, obviously, their permission to take over their entry!
