2019 Swartberg 100 Gravel Fondo’s

Saturday, 27 April 2019

The 2018  Swartberg 100 Fondo’s were a resounding success, we have had many requests from riders to open the entries early and confirm dates and options so that accommodation can be booked early for next year. We have added a tented village for next year’s race with accommodation for around 300 riders and spouses in luxury and standard tent options.
Accommodation in the town is limited so we urge you to enter early and book your accommodation in B&B’s or our tents as soon as possible.
We will be catering for a full weekend experience in 2019, including a pre-ride, breakfasts, lunches, suppers and an after-party on the Saturday night. There will be a picnic ride on Sunday morning as well.
Logistics of the Gran Fondo are complex and expensive given the distance, difficult accessibility and communications cover. We are therefore limiting the event in rider numbers for next year.

Race Registration will be between the hours of :
4pm and 8pm on Friday the 26th of April 2019 for all races.
5:45am and 6:45 am on Race day the 27th of April for the Gran Fondo
7:00 to 7:45  on Race day the 27th of April for the Medio Fondo
8:00 to 8:45 on Race day the 27th of April for the Piccolo Fondo
