    2017 BESTMED JOCK TOUR PRESENTED BY RUDY PROJECT

    All day
    15/09/17-17/09/17

    3 DAYS – 3 STAGES – 304KM – 7200M ASCENT

    The arduous Bestmed Jock Tour, presented by Rudy Project, is set to occur from September 15 – 17. It covers 304KM and a daunting 7200 metres of vertical ascent over three days.

    It’s important to note that this event is not a challenge for the average rider. It constitutes the first event in South Africa that is mirrored on the Classic European Alpine road stage races, such as the Haute Route. There is no tougher three-day challenge on a road bike anywhere else on the African continent.

    THE 2017 STAGES:

    STAGE 1: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15

    Start: 13h00 Individual Time Trial; Nelspruit to Kaapsehoop;
    Distance: 26.93km; Total ascent: 1200m

    The first stage is a 26.93km hill climb time trial from Nelspruit to Kaapsehoop. Although only 26.93km in length, the course rises by 1200 metres between Nelspruit and Kaapmuiden.

    STAGE 2: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16

    Start: 07h30 Nelspruit to White River via the Kruger Airport Road/Sabie and back to Nelspruit;

    Distance: 140km; Total ascent: 2900m

    The second stage is the existing 140km Jock Classique route, which Jock Tour riders will have to complete in one go, without the luxury of the breakfast and lunch stops which the Classique riders have at White River and Sabie respectively.

    This stage takes riders from Nelspruit out on the N4 towards Sabie, before turning right onto the Brondal road onto White River. From White River riders take on the road to Sabie and then back onto Nelspruit. This stage offers 2900 metres of climbing. The notable climbs on this stage are Heidel Eggs, Spitskop and the Long Tom Pass.

    STAGE 3: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17

    Start: 06h30 Nelspruit to Kaapmuiden via Boulders/Barberton and back to Nelspruit
    Distance: 
    138km; Total ascent: 3100m


    Stage 3 takes place over 136km on the traditional Jock Classique route, starting in Nelspruit, going out on the N4 towards Komatipoort before turning right into the Boulders reserve for the back-breaking Boulders ascent and onto Kaapmuiden. From Kaapmuiden the Tour takes on the undulating road to Barberton and then onto Nelspruit, with Hilltop constituting the final climb of the Tour before riders drop down into Nelspruit to finish back at the Mbombela Stadium.
    The total rise on the final stage is 3100 metres.
