Event Name: FNB Wines2WhalesWhen: 20/10/2023 - 29/10/2023Where: Curro Hermanus high school, , Sandbaai, Western CapeCategory: Mountain BikeThe Race with GEES! The FNB Wines2Whales was born out of the desire to create a world-class 3-day stage race in the Western Cape of South Africa. Since inception in 2009, the three events, aptly named after the wines of the area, have become a must-do event on the mountain bike calendar with riders from the farthest reaches of the country and the world. The spirit of the FNB Wines2Whales is “gees” – truly South African phrase that is only understood once experienced. The race's biggest drawcard is undoubtedly the route, which has been perfected over the past 13 years. In 2022, the race followed the traditional route and took teams from the wines of Lourensford to the whales of Hermanus. It was only traditional in direction as Cape Trails, Agrimark, and many landowners poured countless hours into uplifting the route and building new features, thus ensuring it was #SeriousGEES throughout. In 2023, we're switching things up as we host the FNB W2W Switchback that will take teams from Curro, Hermanus to Oak Valley Estate to Lourensford Wine Estate. And, you guessed it, the route will be new, it will be improved, and it will deliver Serious GEES at every possible opportunity! Entries to the 2023 FNB Wines2Whales open on 14 February 2023!
