The three stages in which you may enter can be viewed below (and more info here).

The Chardonnay: 25-27 October 2019

The Chardonnay is the most popular of the three events as it takes place over the first weekend of the 10-day race period and offers riders the chance to be amongst the first to experience the brand new sections that we’ve created just for this year’s events. This event is dedicated to Women’s racing and we see some of South Africa’s, and often the world’s, best female riders battle it out for the overall prize money and leaders’ jersey.

The Pinotage: 28-30 October 2019

The Pinotage is the event that sees the highest number of FNB Wines2Whales first-timers and is perfect for international tourists as well as riders from different provinces as it offers participants the chance to enjoy a mid-week race with an enjoyable weekend on either side.

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.
