Time waits for no-one, and with just over a month to race day, Durban is gearing up for thrilling action at the 29th annual Tsogo Sun Amashova Durban Classic 2015 on 18 October. Enthusiastic cyclists who want to enter this classic cycle race should enter without delay since the online entries close on the 18th September and no entries will be accepted on race day.
Offering prize money of over R100 000 the main Tsogo Sun Amashova challenge, which is part of the UCI World Cycling Tour, is 106km long and runs from Pietermaritzburg City Hall to Durban through spectacular scenery, ending at Masabalala Yengwa Avenue. Serious cyclists that are not up for the main challenge may enter the 65km half challenge which starts at Cato Ridge and cycling novices can join in the 35km Fun Ride from Hillcrest. All races will be followed by an exciting prize giving event at Tsogo Sun’s Suncoast property.
Once again, the fun Mini Shova for children will take place the day before the big race, at Suncoast with distances of 1km for 3-5 year olds and 5km for over 5s – giving the children the opportunity to share in the thrills of the weekend.
This is the second year that Tsogo Sun is the headline sponsor of the race. The 2014 Tsogo Sun Amashova proved a huge success, drawing a record number of over 10 000 entries, and enticing South African’s to experience the thrill of the race while enjoying a family beach weekend away.
