23 Aug 2013 PPA SPRING LEAGUE
We have unexpectedly run into problems regarding the 2013 PPA Spring league, with two Spring road funrides informing us within the last week that they are either having to cancel the event or are unable to host a league event. This left only three league events for the Spring series. In addition, while we have received tacit approval from Western Cape Cycling that they will support PPA’s leagues, we expect final resolution between PPA and CSA to be reached only during September – after the date of the first road funride of the season.
We regret to say that there will therefore not be a 2013 PPA Spring league series, although seeded category riding will, as always, be offered at the funrides.
However, the good news is that the league events for Summer 2014 have been confirmed, being:
- Tour de PPA (19 Jan 2014)
- Bouckaert-Soenen (26 Jan 2014)
- Medallion Tour de Stellenbosch (16 Feb 2014)
- Depending on the road works in the Southern Suburbs, another funride will be added to the 2014 leagues calendar, alternatively a criterium will be held
- A hill climb – either before Tour de PPA (this is our first choice) or before Medallion, depending on traffic permissions
Entries for the 2014 league will open on 4 November 2013 and will close on Friday 10 January 2014. As in the past, cyclists will be able to enter the series as a whole; enter individual events; or join the league during the series if unable to ride the first event. For more information, please email email@example.com.
We look forward to an exciting league series in 2014.
Yours in cycling
The PPA Team
