“You can still secure an entry for the Lions Karoo to Coast if you enter the Dr Evil Classic before the 31st May 2016,” explains event co-owner Zandile Meneses. “Riders will also get a preferential start group in the Karoo to Coast if they ride both events,” she says.
According to Meneses, proactive riders will also qualify for a R200 discount on their Dr Evil Classic entry, if they get in touch with her directly on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now in its fifth year, the three-day Pennypinchers Dr Evil Classic, will feature a number of new innovations, chief of which is having a different start/finish village for each of the three days.
Taking place from 15-17 September 2016 the stage race will offer a rare opportunity to traverse some of the prime private farms and nature reserves around Plettenberg Bay, Wittedrift and Crags area. Days One and Two will each be around 80 kilometres in length, with Day Three less than 50km in order for riders also doing the Lions Karoo to Coast to save their legs.
The routes will be made up of a combination of singletrack, scenic district roads and forest trails. The event prides itself in the fact that nowhere in the country can you ride indigenous forests as is possible on the Garden Route. Not only that, but the entire event is ‘all about the rider.’
“Our philosophy is all about taking care of the rider,” Meneses says. “From the stuffed goodie bag to gorgeous meals prepared by our chef… A complimentary Red Bridge Craft Brewery beer after stage one, and award-winning Kay and Monty wine with lunch, each day."
The event sold out in 2015 and there will be space for only 350 riders in 2016, of which only a limited number of spots are still available. Don’t delay, enter today.
