Participation in non-sanctioned cycling events

ANNOUNCEMENT — 2 September 2016

Please be reminded that participating in a non-sanctioned cycling event in South Africa does have some implications for Full Racing License holders, in connection with the UCI Forbidden Race Rule 1.2.019.

It has been brought to our attention that there are some cycling events in the Eden district that are coming up soon and they have opted not to be sanctioned. Please ensure that you are aware of the status of the event that you participate in by checking our Sanctioned Events Calendar at the following link: http://csams.cyclingsa.com/event-calendar.aspx. If an event you are interested in participating in is not listed, then it is not sanctioned.

As the custodian of the UCI rules and application of those rules as the National Cycling Federation in South Africa, we abide by the rules set by the global cycling body. One such rule is the UCI Forbidden Race rule (1.2.019). This particularly affects those cyclists who hold a full racing license.

A non-sanctioned event does not have the presence of any Cycling South Africa official (Commissaire) and any queries stemming from competing in a non-sanctioned event will not be followed up with Cycling SA as it falls out of our jurisdiction.

Race owners are well aware of the need to be sanctioned when hosting a cycling event in South Africa. We cannot however force any event owner to sanction their race, and those that opt not to sanction do so of their own accord.

Please note that if a qualified Cycling South Africa Commissaire is however present at the non-sanctioned event, they are posing as an official illegally and Cycling SA cannot be held liable for any post-race issues that may arise.

Another vital aspect of being a sanctioned event is to have all the relevant event structures in place, which includes the marking of a route that is safe for cyclists, adequate medics on hand and general safety for cyclists, which is paramount.

This notice is intended to serve as a reminder to all of our valued members and full racing license holders about the implications of competing in a non-sanctioned cycling event.

For ease of reference, please see details of the UCI Forbidden Race Rule 1.2.019 and penalties referred to in rule 1.2.021:

FORBIDDEN RACES

Particular races or events may consist of:
- Events organised occasionally only and which do not belong to the organised sports movement;
- Events whose format is not covered by the UCI regulations.

Any national federation intending to grant a special exception must submit its reasoned request to the UCI administration in the beginning of the season and at least two months before the respective event. The decision of the UCI in this respect is final and shall not be subject to appeal.

1.2.020
Licence holders may not participate in activities organised by a national federation that has been suspended, save in application of article 18.2 of the UCI constitution.

1.2.021
Breaches of articles 1.2.019 or 1.2.020 shall render the licence holder liable to one month's suspension and a fine of CHF 50 to 100.

This include, but are not limited to, public liability insurance cover (free of charge) which is accepted by all large land owners, marketing through our calendar (we are currently working on improved ways to increase communication regarding events), trained event officials to ensure compliance with rules for racing, technical support (advise on routes, traffic management, event information, preparation of safety file), continually keeping cycling a high profile sport in SA.

Record Smashed in Wheelchair Race

Yessssssss! Stuart McCreadie from Stellenbosch smashes the record time as he wins the 42.2km handcycle race in the 2016 OCC wheelchair challenge in George on Saturday, 20th February.George - The start line of the 14th Outeniqua Wheelchair Challenge (OCC) on Saturday 20th February was the scene of racing pulses, as more than 1000 athletes and crowds of spectators waited with bated breath for the starter’s gun to send competitors hurtling off.

The winners of the three different categories in the main 42.2km marathon race were Stuart McCreadie (handcycle race), Ernst van Dyk (racing wheelchair race) and Pieter du Preez (handcycle quad race).

Girl Power! Delia Lubbe whizzes over the finish line first in the ladies’ 21km hand cycle half-marathon during the 2016 OCC wheelchair challenge in George on Saturday, 20th February.Stuart McCreadie set a new course record of 01:07:41 in his hand cycle and broke the previous record set by Ernst van Dyk in this category.

Maties Parasport in Stellenbosch is the home club of both Van Dyk and McCreadie.  McCreadie has finished in the top three in the handcycle race for the last few years, so it was just a matter of time before he took the line honours.

Proud medal winners (left to right) Eugene Steyn, Kenny Herriot and Stuart McCreadie own the podium! Congratulating them are (back row, left to right) OCC organiser Ansie Swart, George Mayor Charles Stander, George Airport manager Brenda Vorster (event sponsor) and Prof Willie vd Westhuizen of Millers Attorneys (medal sponsor).The top woman finisher in the handcycle division was South African Nandi Odendaal, who crossed the finish line in just 2:23:34. In the racing chair division, the winner and second-placed women finishers were both from Zimbabwe - Margaret Bangajena was followed hot on her “wheels” by Thandiwe Ndlovu, who was only one second behind.

Music makes the wheels go round! Music man Willem de Klerk entertained participants and put the “fun” into the 5km fun event at the 2016 OCC wheelchair challenge in George on Saturday. He was pushed by a student volunteer from ETA.The 21km winner was Denzil Ventura from Mitchell’s Plain sports club, and the 10km winner was Lesibana Masela from Black Soul sports club in Pretoria. The 5km Fun Race was a huge success – the eldest entrant was 83-year old Anna Howarth from Franschhoek, and the youngest participant was eight-month-old Micah Samaai who has amniotic band syndrome, a condition that affects his legs.

OCC organisers and sponsors George Airport and George Municipality are delighted that the event went off without a hitch, and extend their heartfelt thanks to all volunteers, competitors, families and supporters for working together to ensure the event’s record of no injuries was maintained.

Dimension Data Extends Cape Epic Partnership

Five-year contract to bring technology innovation to world’s leading mountain bike race

Johannesburg, South Africa – 15 February 2016 – Dimension Data is excited to once again partner with the Absa Cape Epic, billed as the world’s premier mountain bike race. The race is scheduled to start on 13 March 2016, and will run for eight days, over some of the most scenic and gruelling territory in the Western Cape. 

Dimension Data has signed a five-year deal that will see the company become the Official Technology Partner to the Absa Cape Epic from 2016 through 2020.

Sport is evolving and technology has become an integral part of the sporting experience, from the management and execution of the sporting events, to the way the players and participants utilise technology to aid in their training, the use of wearables and using data to track their progress. Viewers and fans demand so much more from watching and following their favourite sports events, whether live or on television. Viewers want real-time information, thus data has become a critical aspect of the sports viewing experience.

Dimension Data looks forward to using its key learnings and leveraging some of the innovative technology solutions it showcased at the Tour de France.

Grant Bodley, CEO, Dimension Data Middle East and Africa says, “Cycling is becoming a high-tech sport and Dimension Data is proud to extend our partnership with the foremost mountain bike stage race in the world. We look forward to bringing a new level of innovation to the Absa Cape Epic over the next five years. We are also excited to continue our partnership with Qhubeka, our employees who will be riding the Epic this year have once again committed to raising money for this worthy cause.”

Dimension Data’s long-term vision is to assist the Absa Cape Epic in remaining the greatest mountain bike race in the world through fan interaction. Following last year’s successful, award-winning, campaign where Dimension Data enabled the live reading of messages of support to the riders – this year the company has taken this one step further and has created a platform where friends, family and fans can record video messages that will be played to the riders as they ride past the Dimension Data hotspot.

Additionally, Dimension Data will also enable Internet connectivity at all the race villages along the route. All the riders, crew, media and sponsors will have free Wi-Fi access throughout the event, enabling them to stay in touch with their families and loved ones, whilst the media will take the race to millions of cycling enthusiasts around the world by uploading images and videos from the race. The connectivity provided will also enable the medical facilities to access medical records for faster treatment.

CEO Lynn Naude says, “The Absa Cape Epic is widely regarded as the world’s premier international mountain bike stage race and we are delighted to have Dimension Data at the race as they are a global technology giant with proven capabilities and reliable technology solutions. The race runs along gruelling terrain, and the ability to provide robust connectivity and exploring the use of data analytics brings a new dimension to the race that has the ability to transform the competitive world of mountain biking.”
