The Tankwa Trek will be broadcast via live stream on the event’s Facebook page and Youtube channel, the event organisers have announced.
The event’s in-house media will also conduct live Twitter feeds and they will compose daily highlight packages, take daily photos and send out press releases throughout.
The UCI-graded event, which takes place through the Witzenberg Valley, will have four stages this year as opposed to the three of previous seasons.
Some of the top local and international riders are set to take part.
The first stage, which starts today, will comprise a short 29km route in and around Kaleo.
The second stage will offer an 83km route with 1 900m of ascent through the Witzenberg Valley.
The third stage, the most challenging of the four, will take riders on an 87km route through the orchards of the Bokkeveld towards the Ceres valley via the Du Tout drop.
The fourth and final stage will consist of an 89km route along single track, jeep tracks and farm roads until the Morester farm.
