Entries are open for the 2018 PPA One Tonner, which takes place on Sunday 28 October 2018. This event is rather unique in that it is one of only two events on the PPA calendar that offers a route longer than 120 km. The team time trial section on the 170 km route offers up to 50 teams the opportunity to use this event as a practise run for the Coronation Double Century which takes place roughly a month later. Individual riders can still participate in the 170 km funride, as well as the 109 km funride. The 170 km and 109 km routes will again be used as seeding events for the Cape Town Cycle Tour. The 40 km route excludes the tough climb over Helshoogte and is ideal for youngsters and novices.
Prize money totalling amount in excess of R25 000 will be on offer to the winners (teams in 170 km and individuals in the 109 km) of the event.
EARLY BIRD ENTRIES
An early bird special will be available to the first 25 individual entrants for each distance. This amounts to a total of 75 entries at drastically reduced prices!
Both the 170 km and the 109 km routes in the 2018 PPA One Tonner will be an Official Premier Seeding Series event for the 2019 Cape Town Cycle Tour.
The event starts and finishes in Stellenbosch, with the two longer routes taking in the tough 5 km climb over Helshoogte, posing a challenge to cold muscles barely 1 km after the start. The 40 km route excludes this killer climb.
Various cut-offs will be enforced along the way to ensure cyclists will reach the finish before 16h00.
At the venue, various food stalls will offer tasty treats as well as craft beer and coffee for sale, while massage therapists will take care of tired muscles. Come and relax under the marquee tent, where music and an MC will keep things pumping.
Team entries close at 14h00 on 28 September. Individual entries close at 14h00 on 8 October. No “on-the-day” late entries will be available, although limited late entries for individuals could be taken at pre-registration during the week, if there is space available.
No late entries whatsoever will be taken for teams.
Riders have the option of a no-medal discounted entry fee, should they not wish to receive a finisher’s medal.
