Critical points I would like to highlight on our strategic plans to position the province (and Limpopo ) on the global space
1. Brand alignment
The Tour de Limpopo – which will be staged in Limpopo from 22-26 April 2018 – has taken literally many man hours to plan and prepare and an even greater number of hours to present and manage. An event like this is not possible without the vision and support of our financial partners and sponsors.
Cycling South Africa wishes to extend a special thank you to Limpopo Tourism Agency, for making the event a distinct possibility.
Limpopo Province, Polokwane: Limpopo Tourism Agency Board and its Executive Management will officially welcome the organizers and the teams that will be participating in the inaugural Tour de Limpopo road race, at Park Inn hotel in Polokwane on the 22 April 2018 at 18H00. It should be noted that this race will be the first international road cycling stage race to be hosted in Limpopo Province.
The fully catered stage race is a UCI Africa Tour 2.2 stage race for professional teams.
Challenging route awaits Tour de Limpopo pro teams
Less than 12 months ago, the idea of holding a high status cycling race in the Limpopo province was a tourism concept of Limpopo Tourism Agency, but in a very short space of time, they – in partnership with Cycling South Africa – have set the ‘stage’ for an acclaimed four-day tour which is tipped to showcase the best of what the Limpopo province has to offer.
The Limpopo Tourism Agency website is currently being upgraded and as such we apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.
Limpopo Tourism Agency (LTA) joins millions of South Africans and the world over in mourning the passing on of the iconic leader and Mother of the Nation, Mama Winnie Madikizela Mandela.
