We will meet at Bloemendal Wine Estate on the 28 th of May 2016 to see who will be the Western Cape XCO Champs. Our Western Cape (WC) riders have showed guts, tenacity and determination during the four race WC series. The series took us from Rhebokskloof in Windmeul to Helderberg in Somerset West and finally to Picardie Guest Farm in Paarl. The series was tough and unrelenting and the riders had to deal with challenging tracks and weather.

The track at Bloemendal is evolving into a worthy challenge and riders will once more have to dig deep. The winners in each category will not only be crowned the WC Champ but also receive a WC Winners Jersey. All podium winners will also receive prize money and must be present at prize giving at 16h00.
