Objectives of the Youth Events:
- To create an opportunity for all riders up to U19 to participate on a regular basis against other riders in the country with similar abilities –not only as individuals, but as a team. The emphasis is on team and province, not on the individual!
- To assist the provinces with their development and transformation goals.
- To create venues for the younger age groups to show and develop their potential as they are no longer participating in the annual South-African Championships.
- As the emphasis is on team and mass participation, all events will be structured in such a way that points will be awarded to every participant
- PDI riders are riders from the previously disadvantaged communities and include all non-white male riders and ALL female riders. If the male riders in the team are predominantly white, then the PDI riders must be non-white or female. If the male riders in the team are predominantly non-white, then the PDI riders must be white or female. To achieve the transformation and development objectives for Cycling SA and the provinces, teams must consist of the following riders:
- U17 and U19:8 riders, 4 Male riders plus 4 PDI riders (Both genders MUST be present).
- U11 to U15:5 riders, 2 Male riders plus 3 PDI riders (Both genders MUST be present).
- The focus is more on bike skills and therefore the bunch track events were incorporated to give the children more exposure and develop their skills in a safe and secure environment and at the same time give the youngsters the opportunity to watch and learn from the older participants and more spectator friendly for parents. This is also a cross pollination of events and exposure to different cycling environments. These events proved to be very popular with riders and spectators. During this year’s event riders will also compete in the Cross Country Olympic(XCO) event.
- The event program in Oudtshoorn will be run as follow.
