Introduction

The Third Mpumalanga Tour will take place from 13 to 18 January 2018, offering 6 daily stages that cover a total distance of 775km from Blyde River Canyon, Swadini, Mbombela, eManzana towards Loskopdam.  After the success of the first two Mpumalanga Tours, the Organisers and Sponsors found it appropriate to shuffle things around a bit and reverse the route.  In response to requests from a large number of Veteran and Junior riders to host a shorter Tour which does not fall into the school term, the Organisers introduced a Lite Tour, which will be the first three days of the Tour.

The Tour will start in the Limpopo Province, moving through the most scenic areas of Mpumalanga and comprise of the following stages:

    • Stage 1 – Blyde River to Swadini
    • Stage 2 – Swadini to Mount Sheba
    • Stage 3 – Mount Sheba to Mbombela Stadium
    • Stage 4 – White River to Mbombela via Umjindi
    • Stage 5 – Mbombela Stadium to eManzana
    • Stage 6 – eManzana to finish at Loskopdam
       

More details on the Lite Tour:

  • The Lite Tour will be the same route as the one the Elite Men will follow for the first three days of the Tour
  • Prize giving for the Lite Tour will be at 13:00 on Monday 15 January 2018

  • Elite Men
