HotChillee Development Rider Programme to be the first in Africa to collaborate with the UCI World Cycling Centre in Switzerland and Africa

Tuesday 23rd February 2016

There are 100 places available for young riders to join the Prologue of the HotChillee Cape Rouleur and race in the 7km ITT alongside Pro riders including members of Team Dimension Data, Team Bulls and Team Randwater.

The Prologue will be the first event in a HotChillee programme which the PPA is supporting in partnership with the UCI World Cycling Centre, Wattbike and Velokhaya to identify the next big talent in South African cycling.

From the 100 young riders those with promise will be selected for UCI World Cycling Centre official testing - with the possibility of being selected to ride in sponsored places in the Coronation Double Century 2016 and in HotChillee events in Europe next year.

The Prologue will take place on Sunday 28 February at 5.45pm - with a rider briefing at 5.00pm. Registration will be at the Protea Hotel, Franschhoek and will open from 3.00pm.

Interested?

Please send an email by Wednesday 24 February to shana@pedalpower.org.za with the names of interested members of your club who’d like to participate in the prologue. We will confirm your place by Friday 26 February. If required, PPA will contribute up to R300 transport money per club.

Please note that this invitation is only to ride the Prologue, not the full Cape Rouleur.
