aQuellé Tour Durban entries extended

Durban - The organisers have responded to a surge in last minute entries for the aQuellé Tour Durban presented by Bridge Fund Managers on Sunday 29 April by extending the online entry process to 11pm on Sunday night 22 April.

"Entries have been really good, and people are realising that the big race with its total road closures and normally excellent Autumn weather is just around the corner," said Gary Harman of the race organising committee.

"We are ahead of where were at the same time last year in terms of the number of entries, so we expect another good entry for the three races," he added.

He also confirmed that the entry for the online competition would be extended to the new deadline of 11pm Sunday night.

"Everyone that enters online will go into the draw for the choice of either
KTM Revelator 3500 road bike or a KTM Scarp 293 LTD mountain bike, each worth around R30 000 from Cycle Lab," he explained.

"The draw will be done on the day of the race and the winner has to be there to claim it," he added.

Harman said that the 45km Fun Ride on the M4 was again proving to be hugely popular as it affords recreational and part timer cyclists the chance to enjoy riding on the picturesque coastal freeway on full road closure.

"We are finalising the offroad and single track segments for the 55km cyclocross race, which gives mountain bikers the best of both worlds, with around 10km of fun MTB riding in the middle of their race,: said Harman.

He also confirmed that many of the major men's and women's teams had confirmed their entries for the 100km classic, and a stellar field will be on the start line to contest the 25th anniversary of the race that was started in 1993.
