Dear Rock & Rut Members! Dear Cycling Community!!
The Rock and Rut Club Committee had called a special meeting on 16 March 2020 to discuss whether its upcoming events, the Nedbank XC Series, can continue as planned despite the so – called Corona Virus pandemic / crisis. In this regard the Committee has considered the input of various stakeholders including from its anchor sponsor Nedbank Namibia as well as the Namibia Sports Commission’s Statement that was issued on 16 March 2020.
In order to assist with our Namibian Government’s efforts to limit the spread of the Covid -19 virus and as the health of all is a priority, the Rock & Rut Committee has now resolved to postpone the Nedbank XC1 UCI C1 as well as Nedbank XC2 events which were due to be held on 28 March and 04 April 2020 respectively. It is probably already known to most that the UCI event which too was to be staged on 28 March, was cancelled.
Furthermore, it was also resolved by the Committee to cancel the social events, namely the Independence Ride as well as the Coffee Ride which were advertised on the social media platforms.
The Committee will communicate within the next couple of weeks about new dates for the Nedbank XC Series and thus kindly keep your eyes peeled on your favourite social media platforms for updates.
In the meantime, stay safe and healthy, but don’t forget to Rock the Rut.
