The Organizers of the FNB Wines2Whales (W2W) Mountain Bike (MTB) Events together with Specialized Bicycles are excited to introduce the #MySpecializedDraw at each of the three MTB events:  Adventure, Ride and Race.

“When we first welcomed Specialized as the official bike partner of the FNB W2W MTB Events we mentioned that exciting times lie ahead”, says Michael Meyer, Director FNB W2W MTB Events.  “We are delighted to be offering all riders the unique opportunity of taking home their very own Specialized Bicycle after the FNB W2W MTB Adventure, Ride and Race.  Together with the support of Specialized Bicycles, we look forward to continue growing these much loved MTB events and ultimately uplifting the sport of mountain biking in South Africa”.

According to Bianca Grobbelaar, Marketing Manager Specialized Bicycles, the #MySpecializedDraw was inspired by the passion for the sport.  “The FNB W2W crowd consists of a unique combination of racers, new comers, joy-riders, old timers and aspirers.  The one thing they all have in common is a true passion for the sport.  What better platform to ‘spread-the-stoke’ of the brand.  We will be giving away x1 bicycle per event.  For the ladies, the Specialized Era Comp Carbon 29er has been chosen as she is the most recent addition or let’s say, ‘come back’ to the Specialized women’s range. She is a racer that is light, quick to perform, trail capable and performance minded.  Should a male rider win the prize, he’ll take home the Men’s Camber Comp Carbon 29er.  The perfect all-rounder, the Men’s Camber is ideal for any rider in South Africa.  Quick on the climbs and easy on the downs with 110mm of travel, it’s everything you need and nothing you don’t.  We trust that the winners of the#MySpecializedDraw will enjoy the ride”.

Valued at a magnificent R50 000.00 per event, the #MySpecializedDraw will include a Body Geometry Fit Session.
