Cape Town Market / Noble Energy has clinched the 2011 Coronation Double Century, beating title holders Daikin-Gu Elites and breaking their three year domination.  Second and third places are to be confirmed and are currently under protest. Vodacom C was the first ladies team and Cycle Lab Supercyling were the first mixed team to finish.

The Club 2000 and  Club 3000 initiatives were started many years ago to recognize those PPA members who take part in the majority of our PPA events and pedal respectively 2000 or 3000 km in a funride year (July to June).

Female cyclists who are looking to become more confident mountain bikers and looking for riding partners in the Tokai plantation, are invited to join Cyclelab on Tuesday mornings for MTB outrides. The rides cater for both novice and more advanced riders.

Jacobus Venter and Heletjie van Staden are the Elite WP road cycling champions for 2011, with Henry Fagan taking the Grand Masters title, Johan de Bod the Junior title, Zalene Tshoko the junior ladies title and Paul Mainking the Masters title. Other age group champions include William Saayman, Jennie Stenerhag, Aqeeb Abrahams, Triumph Baloyi, Qudissieyah Ceres, Gregory de Vink, Maroeshka Matthee and Christo Botha.

Johannesburg’s biggest cycle race ended in 10-man sprint finish to the line when Arran Brown won the small group sprint in front of his team mate Reinardt Janse van Rensburg. Arran finished 2nd last year and was the winner in 2009.
