The 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.

Its biggest drawcard is undoubtedly the route, which has been perfected over the past decade (plus a few!). Like a fine wine, the race has only improved with time. In 2024, the race goes back to its roots, tackling the original route from Lourensford Wine Estate to the coastal town of Hermanus via Oak Valley Estate. The route is packed with sections that both thrill and torment (hello, Gantouw!), with incredible views, new trails, and of course, the old favourites WILL BE BACK!

SAME PRICE AS 2023

Yep, you read that right, the 2024 pricing will be the same for all packages as they were in 2023. More GEES, same price!

CANVAS TENT AS STANDARD

Out with the old and in with the new! Each rider that chooses the standard tent option will be staying in a bigger and better canvas tent.

ORIGINAL ROUTE IS BACK

Our route team is hard at work rebuilding and repairing the old favourites after the 2023 flood damage. And in true W2W style, some new ones will be added.
