To ensure all cyclists’ and the associations for SA and KZN Cycling’s needs were met ahead of this year’s race, Tsogo Sun Amashova’s organisers have revised and proudly announced the final official racing categories for this year’s popular Pietermaritzburg to Durban race.

Not only will SA’s elite racing categories for men be shifted to the challenging 160km race, but all the men’s Vets cyclists will be grouped in one batch for the 106km route with overall winners for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place receiving prize money.
The U19 men will also race in their own batch where 1st place will receive a gold medal.
U19 women, U17 boys, U17 girls and U15 boys will ride the 65km distance in line with the CSA maximum distance ruling. 1st Place in these categories will receive a gold medal.
Within the women’s section there will still be one women’s category that includes elite, U23 and vets for the 106km distance where the first 5 women across the line will receive the same prize money as the men.


There are amazing merchandise specials available at number collection.


Cyclists are batched according to the batch they select when entering online. There are 2 options to choose from: Open and Tandem. The 65km ride is timed, so if you would like your time recorded please wear your Racetec Timing Chip.


All cyclists wanting to participate in road cycling events longer than 20km have to have a license, this is in accordance with the Cycling South Africa rules. It is beneficial to you to purchase a cycling license at the beginning of the year to ensure maximum benefit at other events as well as the Amashova.
