Start - Checkpoint 1

The race starts with 15 km of farm roads taking riders in a northerly direction towards the Swartberg Mountains. A short section of tarred road makes way for arguably the second hardest climb of the race up to Waterpoint 01 at Spitskop, around 36 km into the race. A tricky fast descent takes riders towards De Rust and Dysselsdorp to Checkpoint 1.
