There is not much better than getting a free gift for doing something you enjoy doing anyway, and that is what makes the Cycle Lab Early Bird Entry Competition at the aQuellé Tour Durban so sweet.
To win one of the many prizes in the Cycle Lab Early Bird Entry Competition this year, all you have to do is enter to take part in Durban’s annual favourite cycling weekend. Yes, nothing more than entering either the aQuellé Tour Durban road race on Sunday, April 21st, or the aQuellé Tour Durban MTB powered by Cycle Lab on Saturday April 20th..
All entrants will go into the lucky draw for some cycling equipment from Cycle Lab or some aQuellé product. If you enter both races, you could be in line for two prizes, because each entry into the event gives you an entry into the lucky draw.
So, what is the catch? Well, nothing, although you do have to enter one of the cycling events before midnight on February 29th, because the draw will take place within a few days of that.
There are 21 different prizes to be shared between the road race entrants and the MTB entrants. There are lights, pedals and floor pumps from Cycle Lab, as well as aQuellé hampers and one prize of aQuellé for a year.
This year the aQuellé Tour Durban has added a few extra events, so there are even more reasons to be part of Durban's favourite weekend of cycling.
Saturday, April 20 is "off-road day" and riders can choose between the traditional 40km, 20km or 10km MTB races, as well as a new gravel race for those who are a bit wary of the single-track. And, we have not forgotten people who are not comfortable on two wheels, and for the first time the aQuellé Tour Durban will also include some trail run options on Saturday as well.
The three road races will be held on Sunday, April 21, with riders having an option of 110km, 42km and 28km distances based around the popular lapped format along the M4 between Moses Mabhida Stadium and uMdloti.
Race entries are open at ROAG.org and more can be found at the Tour Durban website.
