The opening stage consisted of a 58.1km route where riders completed a 6km loop around the Meerendal wine farm before heading out to other wine estates for some spectacular views of the Western Cape.
The second and final stage comprised a 40km route, which ascended a mountain on some challenging singletrack sections on Rhebokskloof into the reserve.
