“We are very excited to be able to make this substantial prize purse increase,” says Michael Meyer, Director FNB Wines2Whales (W2W). “Earlier this year we had the privilege of welcoming FNB as the official title sponsor of the FNB W2W MTB events. This partnership has enabled us to implement a number of exciting changes including increasing our prize purse for the FNB W2W MTB Race by R100 000 with the total prize purse now standing on R305 000. This is a huge feat for an event that is now only in its 5th year”.

Starting in the Winelands of Somerset West, riders will cross through (and over) 13 wineries, 26 private farms, six mountains, historic roads and mountain passes, nature conservation areas (including the Kogelberg Biosphere) before finishing within sight of the famous whales of Hermanus.
