Day 1 Contego Wines2Whales presented by Maserati

11 Nov 2011

Day 1 of the Contego Wines2Whales has lived up to all the expectations of a fantastic day of riding blessed with gorgeous sunny weather! Every single comment off the bike referred to the most amazing day of riding today. Even for those that were hanging on to their partners, the delight of the single tracks quickly wiped away any memories of pain.

Our Ride with a Celebrity team had a fantastic day of riding, with everyone enjoying getting to know their partners, and the amazing riding and awesome views.

Christoph was spotted lubing Trevor’s at WaterPoint 1 while Burry and Johan whizzed through the waterpoint. Giniel and Bobby had lots of fun out on the tracks. Dan did a whirlwind fly in from an Oakley shoot in LA and straight to the start line to make it just in time to meet up with his partner, Marcel at WaterPoint 1. Apparently Oli was chatting away to Michael for most of the day, keeping spirits up and sharing some of his riding experiences while Darren Lill and partner Aubrey from Aca Joe were racing through the bunches to make it across the finish line in a great time.

The accommodation at the Grabouw Lodge is just stunning. Right now the team are having massages and resting up, looking forward to joining the rest of the athletes in the chill zone.

We’re looking to another fun day of riding around Grabouw tomorrow.
