Celebrating its 9th anniversary in 2017, the FNB Wines2Whales (W2W) Mountain Bike (MTB) Events will also celebrate DHL’s 9th year as the event’s valued logistics partner.

“We are proud to have DHL as our logistics partner for 9 years running,” says Michael Meyer, FNB W2W MTB Director. “The FNB W2W has come a long way since the inaugural event in 2009. From humble beginnings, it’s become a bucket list event for many if not all mountain biking enthusiasts. DHL was with us from the start. Their expertise and professional approach to business has helped establish the FNB W2W as the Western Cape’s premier three day MTB Stage Race. We value their support and look forward to hosting the best FNB W2W yet.”

“As official logistics partner to 100s of events across the globe, we know that great is in the detail. We are thrilled to provide our logistics expertise to the FNB W2W MTB Events as their official logistics partner,” says Megan Roper, Head of Marketing, DHL Sub-Saharan Africa. Our slogan at DHL Express is ‘Excellence, Simply Delivered’ and we aim to demonstrate this at every opportunity. Our partnership with the FNB W2W MTB Events provides a great platform for us to showcase our capabilities. We look forward to celebrating our 9th year with the riders and organizers at the FNB W2W MTB Events.”

DHL’s contribution towards the success of the event includes (but is not limited to) the allocation of trucks, panel vans, drivers and fuel, for the transport of infrastructure, rider luggage, branding and race pack collection elements as well as collections and deliveries prior, during and post event.

Starting in the Winelands of Somerset West, riders will cross through (and over) 13 wineries, 26 private farms, six mountains, historic roads and mountain passes, nature conservation areas (including the Kogelberg Biosphere) before finishing within sight of the famous whales of Hermanus!
