The FNB Wines2Whales was born out of the desire to establish a world-class 3-day stage race in the Western Cape of South Africa. Since inception in 2009, it has become a must-do event on the mountain bike calendar for riders from the farthest reaches of the country queueing for the chance to experience South Africa’s favourite MTB trails.
Its biggest drawcard it undoubtedly the route which charts an exquisite yet challenging path that embraces much of the Overberg’s history and splendour. Riders are treated to a mix of terrain, including private farm roads, historic wagon paths and majestic mountain singletracks, as they make their way from Lourensford Estate to the coastal town of Onrus.
The spirit of the FNB Wines2Whales is “gees” - a truly South African phrase that you need to experience to understand. We offer three events that are spread over the ten-day race period – essentially these events are exactly the same as the route does not differ between them; the difference comes in terms of the races’ focus.
The Shiraz: 1-3 November 2019
The Shiraz takes place over the last weekend of the race and is dedicated to those riders who want to test their skills and fitness against the best in the Men’s, Mixed and Exxaro teams. Generally, the riding is a lot faster and sees many FNB Wines2Whales riders return with a mix of familiarity and determination to compete in their respective age categories.
