2021 Calendar & Rules

2021 Regulations

Competition Rules:

The SA DHI Series scores according to UCI rules, where the seeding run counts for 25% and race run scores full points. The 2021 WC DH season is all about Downhill.

All serious contenders enter into the correct DH categories from the start of the series. You cannot change categories. The new 2021 ruling insists that all DH riders have to have CSA membership licences. This is in your own interest as it insures you at the races.

CSA Membership: 
Cycling South Africa takes great pleasure in announcing that Membership fees for 2020 will remain at R250 per annum.

These include racers in the UCI categories (Junior, U23 and Elite) who will 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.

  • Good sportsmanship and good conduct on and off the field of sport WILL be a pre-requisite for any awarding of colours.
