In 2020, the FNB Wines2Whales Switchback was canceled due to Covid-19; now, with all registered teams rolled into the 2021 event, the number of new entries available is limited.
The inaugural Switchback event — with the route ridden in reverse — will take in all of the popular singletrack trails of the region, with some new sections adding to the spice. However, it’s not only your dazzling singletrack skills that you will need to rely on for success at the event, it’s also your keyboard prowess to gain an entry in the first place! The limited entries become available on the 28th of April at 9:00. These early entries are priced at R13 250 — which is the same price from two years back. Note: This special 2019 entry price is only valid for 1 week after registration opens or until entries are sold out.
