Champions Chase: Strava Segments


Northern Farm Trail

Starting with a fast farm road descent, the first climb of the segment is sure wake up any tired legs. Serpentine singletrack will then take riders around trails such as “Mamba” & “Snakes & Ladders” before a gradual 4km climb back to the start.
Northern Farm will only be open to ride on the two weekends of the FNB Wines2Whales Champions Chase (31st-1st/7th-8th) and due to Covid-19 protocol all riders need to book a time using this link: https://www.northernfarm.org.za/


Holla Trails

An initial 10KM climb will drive your heart rate up before you’re slotted into 2.5KM of stunning singletrack. After some fun, you’ll climb again and earn a high-speed descent and more singletrack Gees before returning to Holla.

Riders can get permits at the sales counter at the Holla Trails shop.

Giba Gorge

Giba’s FNB Wines2Whales Champions Chase segment features super-smooth flowing lines, tight berms and wooden bridges, while the Free Ride section offers #SeriousGEES by the bucket load! Being handmade, the trail allows for some tight cornering but all the hazards are clearly marked with white paint.

Riders can get permits at the Giba Gorge Shop.

Western Cape

Oak Valley Estate

Singletrack is the order of the day in the Oak Valley Estate segment as we’ve crammed as many trails into the 24KM as possible. And you know that singletrack = #SeriousGEES.

Permits can be bought at the start of the trail at the Oak Valley coffee shop and The Pool Room could be your final stop for some wine tasting.


The Tokai segment will test your legs with a long opening climb of 10KM, but once you point your bike downhill, it’s nothing but #SeriousGEES all the way down.

SANParks day or annual permits are required for riding. Riders can also join Tokai MTB to ensure the trails are maintained and developed. www.tokaimtb.co.za.

Tygerberg Trails

The FNB Wines2Whales Champions Chase Tygerberg segment opens with a climb before dropping into fast and fun singletracks called Puff Adder and The Gorge. After some fun, you’ll head up to the top of Hoogekraal Hill where uninterrupted views of Table Mountain, Robben Island and the City Bowl are on offer. Then it’s all down! Permits can be bought at Hoogekraal.

Paul Cluver

Any riders who have ridden an FNB Wines2Whales in the past should feel right at home on the magical trails of Paul Cluver! The FNB W2W Champions Chase segment features some of the estate’s best trails and promises #SeriousGEES for all riders!

Permits can be bought at the start of the trail.

Free State

Brandkop MTB Trail

#SeriousGEES has arrived in Bloem, specifically at the Brandkop MTB Trail! With roughly 100M of climbing in the 19KM loop, we’re sure all riders will be grinning from ear to ear as they chase the KOMs and QOMs in search of some FNB Wines2Whales Champions Chase spot prizes.
