Upon approval, an Accreditation Pass will be issued by the Organisers Office of the Winelands Cycle Race Trust. Applications must be submitted via email, and confirmation will be sent electronically. Media armbands must be picked up onsite at the Winelands Cycle Race Number Collection. Registered media will receive a confirmation email.

Accredited media must wear event identification at all times. Past registration does not guarantee approval. Misconduct or misrepresentation may result in future event bans.

The Winelands Cycle Race Trust reserves the right to deny or revoke media armbands at any time. Registration is complimentary, but media attendees are responsible for their own expenses, such as dining, parking, travel, and accommodations.

By submitting the Media Accreditation Application, applicants agree to comply with event-specific rules. Accreditation access is for coverage and reporting only. Passes are non-transferable and may be revoked for rule breaches. Unauthorized use may result in cancellation and ejection from the event. Theft or loss of a pass must be reported immediately.

Soliciting orders for products or services, including advertising, is prohibited. Distribution of promotional material is also prohibited. All event information is the property of the Winelands Cycle Race Trust and cannot be reproduced without permission.
