The organisers of the FNB Wines2Whales (W2W) Mountain Bike (MTB) Events are proud to announce that Craft Functional Sportswear has been signed as the official ON-BIKE Partner of all three events:  FNB W2W MTB Adventure, Ride and Race.
“We are delighted to welcome Craft as the official ON-BIKE Partner of the FNB W2W MTB Events,” says Michael Meyer, Director FNB W2W MTB Events.  “Craft is a premium brand that provides premium ON-BIKE Sportswear.  We look forward to hosting three exciting events in partnership with this exceptional brand”.

“Craft’s motto, ‘enjoy the hard work’, fits in well with multi-stage MTB races,” says Raoul de Jongh, General Manager Craft South Africa.  “For Craft, this means being a part of the journey of all 4000+ riders who tackle this amazing series of events.  We will offer a back-up service to all riders who have forgotten things like arm warmers, jackets and socks.  We will strive to cover the entire field’s demands when it comes to performance sports apparel, from the weekend warrior to the racing snake. A selection of limited edition event jerseys will also be for sale at the event shop”.
