For a limited time, from 12 July until sold out, the popular Cycle Lab Maluti Double90 powered by Biogen has opened up 10 early bird entries for 2020’s event, which will take place on 18 April.
Early bird entries are R9,300 per team of 12 riders. That’s a R600 discount on the normal R9,900 per team entry fee.
It also secures your entry into a unique cycling race that we’re anticipating will be fully booked in 2020. Organisers have experienced an increase in team entries over the last two years, with the 2019 event falling just six teams short of full capacity. Expectations are that the 2020 event will surpass that mark.
About the race
Now in its fifth year, the Cycle Lab Maluti Double 90 powered by Biogen is a 180km team time trial that gives amateur cyclists the unique experience of racing as a team.
The format brings tactics into play that you won’t find in any solo-rider event, with teams strategising around sharing the workload and controlling the pace to get at least six of their riders across the line in the fastest possible time.
Put on by the Pedal Power Association, the event is open to Female, Male and Mixed team, with 12 riders per team. Each team starts 30 seconds apart and has up to nine hours to complete the event.
About the route
The race starts and finishes at the President Square in the picturesque Free State town of Clarens. In a loop out towards Bethlehem, the route includes a tough, hilly section through the iconic Golden Gate National Park. Given both the distance and the undulating terrain, this is not your usual weekend coffee ride, but if you have enough miles in your legs, you are going to absolutely love it.
