Tour of Good Hope
Presented in the week leading up to the Cape Town Cycle Tour and based in the Paarl/Franschhoek valley, the event encompasses five days of clover leaf racing through the Cape Winelands over a total distance of 515km and 6168m vertical ascent.
Paarl is surrounded by some of the most famous passes in the country and lends itself perfectly to a clover leaf racing format. We believe this format (central race village hub) will significantly reduce the logistics and ‘own costs’ of participants, related to traveling and accommodation, while incorporating some of the best and most famous cycling routes and mountain passes in the Western Cape. We are trying to minimise rider costs and logistical difficulties around the tour as much as possible for next year, opening it up to a wider participant base. The changes we have spearheaded will decrease the hassle factor of attending this race considerably.
Amateur team competition
The organisers of the Bestmed Tour of Good Hope, presented by Rudy Project from 29 February to 4 March 2016, have added a Team Time Trial to the 2016 event as well as incredible added value for riders who enter into the Amateur Teams category.
The team time trial will take place on the same day as the individual time trial (stage 2), but only riders entered as 8-man open/seeded teams in the team competition will compete in this discipline. Riders who enter as individuals in the open/seeded category as well as all other racing categories (elite/junior, Vets 30+, Vets 40+ Vets 50+ and elite ladies) will compete in the individual time trial on the triangular course which links Paarl and Franschhoek to La Paris.
