The Liberty Winelands Encounter is the second leg of the annual Liberty Encounter Series, which includes the TransCape MTB and the Waterberg Encounters. Starting in Boschendal, the race will expose mountain-bikers to the scenic trails of the Cape Winelands around Franschhoek and Paarl. ASG Events have again limited the field to 200 teams. The focus for the three-day race is to provide an event with the emphasis on quality while ensuring it remains within an affordable price bracket. Competitors will face stages of around 50km each day, with about 1,000m of climbing. For more info, visit www.winelandsencounter.co.za.
