According to a statement released today, planning has shifted to the one-day race in order to provide a better and safer riding experience.
The three-day event was due to have taken place from July 13 to 15.
Now all focus from the organisation, including lead vehicles and motorbikes, will solely be on the one-day event to provide a more enjoyable experience.
The Classic, one of the oldest events in the country, follows a unique format in that it covers three stages in a single day and is ultimately what it became famous for.
Stage one starts in Nelspruit and finishes 42km later in White River. Stage two covers the next 45km to Sabie, via Spitskop. The grand finale will be contested over 63km back to Nelspruit, via Long Tom Pass.
This adds up to a total of 150km with 2 900m of vertical ascent.
Amateur riders will also have the opportunity to be in the mix alongside the professionals.
