In 2023 we’ll once again host two E-Bike events and riders can choose between the E-Bike Open category, which starts 30 minutes ahead of A batch, or the E-Bike Tour which starts 30 minutes after the last start batch.
The E-Bike Open is for any team with one, or both, teammates on an e-bike, however these teams must be able to maintain an average speed of at least 18kph. The E-Bike Tour is for any team where one, or both, teammates are on E-bikes. The Tour is aimed at novices and stage race newbies who would like to enjoy the incredible FNB Wines2Whales Switchback route in a friendly, controlled, and guided manner.
The 2023 FNB W2W E-Bike Open will feature podiums and the introduction of leader jerseys for the fastest teams in the following categories:
- E-Bike Open Men (19+)
- E-Bike Open Women (19+)
- E-Bike Open Mixed (19+)

It is important to note that in order to qualify for the E-Bike Open podium and leader jersey, both team members must ride on an E-bike.
