Don't think there would be any issues at OA level with your changing dates - makes no sense to clash with a big MTB race - but I don't know how difficult the process of changing your approvals would be. I guess ideally you'd want to be one week away from the Cape to Cape to tempt those easterners who might want to do both?
Yeah that's the whole reason I set it for the week prior - to give travelers more to do and entice a few more people over.
Shouldn't be too big a problem with approvals, provided no-one else has booked the venues on those dates although our DPaW contact may get a bit sick of the whole process. I've already changed one venue.
Still waiting to hear back from the C2C people on the dates although he has at least replied to my email.
Sponsors are welcome? You want me to work on this?
