The Val de Vie MTB Expedition, which takes place on 14-16 May 2021, saves no effort in our vision to create the Cape Winelands’ signature upmarket 3-stage mountain bike stage race.
A unique feature of the Val de Vie MTB Expedition is its 5-star Race Village at the luxurious Pearl Valley Hotel by Mantis, which adds an exclusive status to the event.
All riders receive a custom Val de Vie MTB Expedition Rain Jacket while rider nutrition, water, energy drinks and sumptuous snacks are available at the feed points to spoil and motivate riders during the event.
Servicing and a lube station are available halfway on each day while all bikes are washed and lubed after each stage and can be stored in a secure facility overnight.
Service packages and massage bookings available on the entry site.
START AND FINISH DAILY is at the Pearl Valley Hotel in Val de Vie Estate.
