CSA MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS:
All riders taking part require one of the following:
Full Racing License
This category of license is for riders from the age of 17-years-old who wish to be eligible for provincial and national selection and respective colours award. The bearer of a full license is entitled to partake in national championships or series race and be seeded accordingly. Those of who race in the UCI categories (Junior, U23 and Elite) earn UCI points, which will assist them in being seeded at future UCI category events, UCI World Cups and UCI World Championships. The cost of a full racing license is R450 per year, and the applicant has to be member of an affiliated club, as well as be a registered member of Cycling SA. These MUST be done simultaneously for a Full Racing License to be valid. Full Racing Licenses are only valid from 1 January to 31 December each year.
Cycling South Africa Membership
A membership holder is entitled to enter any event, irrespective of discipline, without having to purchase a day license. A member is allowed to participate in a national series event but will not be eligible for national or provincial selection. A membership of Cycling SA is the most basic form of license and is an agreement of the rider to abide by the rules of the event in which they participate. A Cycling SA membership can be renewed on a 12-monthly cycle.
The Youth membership fee will be R150, and will be introduced from 1 November 2018 for riders aged 16 years and younger! Youth are able to participate in national and provincial championships and series on a membership only. As per a normal Cycling SA membership, Youth will also receive full access to Hollard Insurance Company medical assistance cover, access to RoadCover RAF claims management system, and other membership benefits as stipulated below.
The Day-license is designed to allow the absolute newcomers of the sport to participate within the rules and regulations of the sport. These participants, who do not hold a full license or membership, need to purchase a day license. By purchasing a day license the rider agrees to participate in the event and abide with the rules of the event and those of Cycling SA for that day. A day license costs R35 and is only valid for one day.
