Racing is still not permitted in South Africa and the national federation is not sanctioning events yet. The call to race or not will be made in mid Feb’21.
This means that we are innovating and exploring some new avenues. TrackCyclingSA members have been training on several online platforms during the initial lockdown last year.
We are actively exploring online options to complement our real life training and to make up for the lack of racing. We have tested the velodrome option on BKOOL and have done a few trials in terms of training and racing. More feedback to follow.
Our members are also currently training at Bellville velodrome in small groups with Covid-19 regulations in place.
Our new rider program will kick off soon and will follow the appropriate Covid-19 measures. Contract firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about the new rider program (Bellville velodrome) and how to join us for online training.
