Winelands MTB Encounter

The Winelands Encounter will see the sixth edition of the event.

2020 Winelands Encounter
8 May –  10 May 2020
3 STAGES – 144KM JOURNEY

The 2020 Winelands Encounter has been reshaped to access some incredible new riding terrain as well as spectacular host venues while also easing rider logistics by overnighting at the same venue for the Friday and Saturday evenings following stages 1 and 2.

The Winelands Encounter takes place over three stages, linking Franschhoek and Paarl together in a wonderful 144km 3-day tapestry of trails in the heart of the Cape Winelands.

The majestic Le Franschhoek Hotel will play host to the event for two evenings following the first and second stages.

Stage 1 will start at the Boschendal Wine Estate while after stage 3 we will bring the curtain down on proceedings at the beautiful Nederburg Wine Estate in Paarl.

The Winelands Encounter will see the sixth edition of the event.

The three-day stage race affords our participants, with a passion for the sport, the experience of a lifetime. It is an encounter where riders are treated as VIP’s and where they are offered world-class hospitality at 5 Star venues.

Riders are allowed to enter in teams of two or as a solo rider.
