Boland 5 Tour de Boland Race

route_all_tilt2-1Emulating the finest European cycling traditions, the 2015 Bestmed Tour de Boland, presented by Pinarello from 2-6 March 2015, is again set for a scintillating grand finale with riders having to summit the Paarl Mountain to finish at the iconic Taal Monument on the final day. The Tour de Boland takes place in the week leading up to the Cape Argus Momentum Cycle Tour and is at the forefront of rekindling the tradition of classic road tours in South Africa.

The organisers’ aim with the event is to present a true challenge to road riders while showcasing as much as possible of the Boland region.

No better place to ride your bike!

The Boland presents some of the country’s finest tarred roads in the most beautiful setting and calm traffic areas – it all adds up to an unequalled road riding experience.

The Tour will pass through some of its most historic and beautiful towns, including Franschhoek, Worcester, Ceres, Tulbagh, Riebeeck-kasteel, Wellington and Paarl.

A total of 465km awaits riders over 5 stages with a total vertical ascent of 4428 metres

The Tour starts and finishes in Paarl and caters for all CSA categories as well as open/seeded fun ride categories, presenting four road stages and a 30km individual time trial.

All of South Africa’s pro teams will be present as well as a strong contingent of international riders, including a solid line-up from multiple world and Cape Epic champion Christoph Sauser
