Stage 2: Swellendam to Swellendam (57km/1150m)

The Rainmaker RollerCoaster, the world’s first seven-day point to point gravel stage race, will take place from 6-12 October 2018 in the Western Cape, South Africa.

Rainmaker has joined forces with HotChillee, the cycling event group behind the renowned LONDON-PARIS and Cape Rouleur races, to sponsor this inaugural event, which embraces the growing phenomenon of gravel riding.

The Rainmaker RollerCoaster begins with a sunset time trial in the Bontebok National Park, Swellendam, a few hours drive from Cape Town, and will finish in Plettenberg Bay on the iconic Garden Route. With a distance of 550km, the route follows gravel roads and trails of the farmlands in Swellendam, into the semi desert of the Little Karoo, along the lush Garden Route, through the Knysna forest and finishes at the breathtaking coast of Plettenberg Bay.

Participants will stay overnight in tented race villages, with upgrade accommodation packages available, and be looked after en route by HotChillee’s professional back-up logistics team.

Jan Joubert, Rainmaker CEO, said: ‘With the Western Cape as its backdrop, this will be a truly unique opportunity for all involved. It is very exciting to be supporting an event like this; which is not only giving gravel cycling the world-class stage it deserves, but also supporting the amazing communities (like Kwano) in the region and along the route. This whole event is completely in line with what we do at Rainmaker…which is to make a difference!
