Postponement of L’Etape South Africa
L’Etape South Africa’s event organisers, Buyu Sport & Entertainment and Cycling South Africa met last week. Having assessed the conditions of the roads, which have been under a road rehabilitation program, and some of the compliance issues required, it was concluded that the road surface for the proposed route will not be in a satisfactory state for riders by the race date, the 2nd of April 2017.
Both parties agree that the safety of riders is of utmost importance and cannot be compromised and have therefore come to a mutual agreement to postpone the event to a future date to be agreed upon.
L’Etape South Africa would like to apologise to all cyclists. We are cognisant of the financial, emotional and physical investment that has gone into preparing for a cycling event of this magnitude.
