Day 2 Contego Wines2Whales presented by Maserati

14 Nov 2011

Day 2 of the Contego Wines2Whales entails riding through great single tracks across the Grabouw and Elgin valley. While a lot of this single track lies on the backdoor for many Capetonians, it's not often that you get the opportunity to head out to Grabouw and follow a course of back-to-back single track from Oak Valley to Lebanon.

Everyone finished the day once again raving about the great trails and enjoying a race that is full of so much amazing single track. Really who could complain, it's some of the best riding in our country!

There was no doubt a little rivalry amongst the Ride with a Celeb team - particularly between the partners of Christoph and Burry, Trevor and Johan who were each eyeing out the other's team to see the time to make-up on Day 3!

After a little afternoon lunch at The Orchard Farmstall and a nap at the gorgeous and very hospitable Grabouw Lodge, the team headed back to the Race Village and into the Chill Zone for a beer and interview with Paul Valstar.

Later in the evening the songo team were very privileged to be recognised as the official charity of the Contego Wines2Whales with a video clip showcasing the organisation including an interview of Christoph and Songo. This was followed by the whole Ride with a Celebrity Team being interviewed on stage, an amazing privilege to have such a prestigious group of riders being part of the Contego Wines2Whales and collaboration.
