Bestmed Cycle4Cansa Road Classic & MTB 2016

The Bestmed Cycle4Cansa Road Classic, hosted by Sun City, is in its' 19th year and is a premier seeding event for the Cape Town Cycle Tour. 

The road race moves away from its traditional Saturday slot and will take place on Sunday, 21 August offering distances of 103km and 70km. The MTB Classic now fills the Saturday slot (20 August) over the weekend cycling festival. 

MTB Race: 20 August

The Bestmed Cycle4Cansa MTB Classic consists of a 25km circuit-based route which riders complete twice in the feature 50km race. The course is incredibly scenic and participants traverse through a palm plantation, the renowned Gary Player and Lost City golf courses, and the neighbouring Letsatsing Game Reserve

While the route is a beautiful one, participants mustn't be fooled; the route ends with a good technical section on the Sun City motocross track before riders hit the tar for the finish at the Sun City parking lot.

The half-distance or single-circuit race is also suitable for children older than 12 who want to enjoy a family ride with their parents. All participants in both the road and MTB events will receive free entrance into the Valley of Waves on both Saturday and Sunday and there will be plenty of entertainment, hosted by Sun International.
