1.All members of Rockhoppers MTB Club must at least have a Cycling South Africa (CSA) Membership or Domestic racing license for the current year. Applications for CSA membership and licenses are made on-line through www.cyclingsa.com / Membership selecting Rockhoppers as your club when prompted to do so. Payments for these licenses are made directly to Cycling South Africa during the application process. During this process there will also be a requirement to pay R75.00 per rider to Gauteng Cycling for provincial affiliation.

The process of obtaining or renewing a license or membership through CYCLING SA is now a very simple and quick process and only takes a few minutes especially if you were previously licensed.

NB All riders taking part in CYCLING SA sanctioned events are required to be a Member of CYCLING SA for the year in which the race takes place, or alternatively to have a valid day license for every day of participation. Membership or a day license is a race entry requirement and is thus a prerequisite to enter a race. This includes Marathons, Half Marathons, XCO races, dhi races and Relay Events (eg. 6/12/24 hour races)

NOTE It is not necessary for CSA Members to belong to a club, but members which apply/upgrade their CSA Memberships to Domestic Racing Licenses need to belong to a registered cycling club. CSA Memberships can be done directly on www.cyclingsa.com

License structure explained – as per the Cycling SA website

Full Racing License

This category of license is for riders from the age of 17-years-old who wish to be eligible for provincial and national selection and respective colours award. The bearer of a full license is entitled to partake in national championship or series race and be seeded accordingly. Those of who race in the UCI categories (Junior, U23 and Elite) earn UCI points, which will assist them in being seeded at future UCI category events, world cups and championships. The cost of a full racing license is detailed on the CSA website and the applicant has to be member of an affiliated club, as well as be a registered member of Cycling SA. These can be done simultaneously. (Youth category (15 and 16 years) and younger competitors can participate in all events as CSA Members)

Membership

A membership of Cycling SA costs R120.00 per year. A membership holder is entitled to enter any event, irrespective of discipline, without having to purchase a day license. A member is allowed to participate in a national or provincial series event, but will not be eligible for national or provincial selection. A membership of Cycling SA is the most basic form of license and is an agreement of the rider to abide by the rules of the event in which they participate.
