The Liberty Encounter Multi-Stage MTB Series consists of two very special events annually.
The Liberty Winelands Encounter takes place on 21-23 April 2017 in the Cape Winelands, linking the historic towns of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl and Wellington.
The Liberty Waterberg Encounter takes place on 9-11 June 2017, linking the resorts of Sondela and Zebula in Limpopo.
Preferential 2017 Liberty Winelands entries open on Thursday 1 September 2016 at 08h00. Any rider who participated in the 2016 Liberty Winelands and/or Waterberg Encounter can register a team until Thursday 15 September 2016, where after available entries will be open to the public.
A rider who participated in the 2016 event/s can invite a new rider to participate as a team member during the preferential period. It is therefore not a pre-requisite that you enter with the same team member or that the new team member participated in any of the 2016 encounters. Please make sure to register your team timeously since we are limiting the field to 300 teams.
The entry fee during the preferential period is R4000 per person / R8000 per team, including breakfast and lunch. Entrants will be able to book Friday and Saturday dinner/s online at an additional cost of R300 per dinner and additional meal bookings for spouses and friends. A Sleeping Bag option (Conference Room sleeping at LeFranschhoek Hotel on Friday evening and tents at Kleine Valleijj on Saturday evening) has been added at R500 per person for 2 x nights (R250 per night).
Entries for the Waterberg Encounter will open on 1 October 2016 on the same premise as the Winelands Encounter.
