 The Tour of South Africa, an 8-day, 7-stage 2.2 Category cycling event, takes place from the 19th to the 26th February 2011.

The Tour starts in Gauteng and ends in Paarl and will be broadcast on Supersport on DSTV.

 It’s the African equivalent to The Tour de France and will promote national patriotism, tourism and the support of roadside racing by spectators in our country.

2010 gave us the FIFA World Cup to entertain us, 2011 brings 24 Nations to SA, competing in a Tour across idyllic South Africa by bike in the inaugural Tour of South Africa, a world-class cycling event.

Stage 3 (177km)
Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium to Summerstrand

Tuesday 22 February: 173km – Nelson Mandela Bay to Summerstrand– Starting at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, stage 3 heads towards the Addo Elephant National Park where one is sure to catch a few glimpses of wildlife (it is home to the Big Seven). From there the race returns to Port Elizabeth, where the route takes an interesting turn, with a city circuit, before finishing in Summerstrand on the beach front.

About the Race

The Cell C Tour of South Africa will be a World Class Cycling event with a uniquely South African flavour and a sought after destination for cycling teams around the World.

The Tour of South Africa has been carefully timed to follow on from the tour Down Under in Australia and before the major events in Europe.  It is an 8-day, 7-stage 2.2 Category cycling event in year 1, with plans to eventually turn it into a 9-day, 2.HC event within 5 years. It will be the “Jewel in the Crown” of Pro Cycling in South Africa.

The prize money for the event will be R500 000, making this the richest road event in the country.
