Cyclists from South Africa and Zimbabwe are expected to arrive for the inaugural Botswana Classic 2014, which starts today with the time trial. The race is organised by Tsela Riders.

In the trial time cyclists will compete in a one four-kilometre lap starting at Masa Centre. The event will be followed by an 84 kilometre road race tomorrow at Boatle/Mmankgodi junction, then an hour circuit race in the new Gaborone CBD in the afternoon.

The final race is the 109 kilometre road race on Sunday, starting and finishing at the Grand Palm hotel.  One of the organisers, Ed Lambart, told Mmegi Sport that they had expected riders from Swaziland and Mozambique. However, he said Mozambique riders informed them that they could not make it because they received the invitation late.  He was still to confirm the number of foreign riders at the time of going to press.
