Columbia Grape Escape
The tough Columbia Grape Escape 2012, held just before the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Lifecycle Week, once again attracted top quality riders. Launched in 2011, the race is held over three days and amateur and professional mountain bikers cover over 200km of some of the most spectacular terrain in the Boland – including over 4 000m of climbing. Jackie Gouwerneur and Pieter Strobos of Wild Elements Apparel, local Columbia distributors, were ready to welcome the winners home. They were Burry Stander and Christoph Sauser (men’s team),  Hanlie Booyens and Jane Seggie (ladies’ team), Ariane and Erik Kleinhans (mixed team), Ralf Näf (solo men) and Ann Harrison (solo ladies), photographed by Karin Schermbrucker.
