BRIDGE CAPE PIONEER TREK UCI STATUS FOR 2014

The Bridge Cape Pioneer Trek international mountain bike stage race has been granted International Cycling Union (UCI) race status for 2014, making it only the second South African stage race to be awarded this prestigious classification.
 
The seven-day stage race, which takes place each year in late October in the Western Cape province, has shown appropriate compliance to the UCI’s grading criteria. It will begin as a UCI S2 level status event, the first tier of three for international stage races and can improve its grading over time. The ABSA Cape Epic is the only other South African stage race that holds a UCI grading.
 
“We are very pleased with this news. It’s been on our list of goals for some time. With not many other international stage races taking place in October, we felt that the combination of the Cape Pioneer Trek’s quality race route, high organisational standards and its calendar position, would all work in our favour,” said Henco Rademeyer, Cape Pioneer Trek Race Director.
 
“It’s essentially a badge of prestige that attracts a higher level of international riders at the competitive end of the race. That’s not to say we’ll take any focus off the enjoyment factor for the majority of the entrants, who will, from next year be competing alongside a number of the world’s best racers.”
 
“The UCI status echoes the level of the Bridge Cape Pioneer Trek as a world class race and it yet again strengthens our pride in being the title sponsor of such an esteem event,” said Emile Aldum, Bridge CEO.
 
By being granted UCI status, a race is obliged to offer a minimum amount of prize money in Euros and pay prize money down to at least 10
th position in the men and women’s Elite categories on each stage and in the General Classification rankings at the end of the event. Graded events also offer UCI rankings points to top performing riders.

So wat is dit nou eintlik wat die Bridge Cape Pioneer Trek so ’n unieke bergfietsmarathon maak? Terésa Coetzee het dit self gaan ry en uitgevind dis ’n kombinasie van die skoonheid, die enorme fisieke uitdaging en die hart en siel van hierdie marathon. Ek het soos ’n superheld gevoel toe ek oor die eindstreep van vanjaar se Bridge Cape Pioneer Trek in Oudtshoorn ry. Want om hierdie formidabele bergfietsmarathon te kon voltooi, was tegelyk een van die moeilikste en belonendste goed wat ek nog gedoen het. Nou nog betrap ek myself waar ek voor my rekenaar sit, dat my…
