Wines2Whales: Congratulations to our Teams!
November 18, 2016 Sunel

Well done to our Big Box teams, who enjoyed every gruelling minute of this year’s spectacular Wines2Whales staged mountain bike races.

Each of our two-person teams did the company proud. Riding together were Big Box’s Managing Director Jasper Coetzee and Peter Smith, and, on a second team, Big Box Director Willie Ward and Alan Roberts.

Everyone enjoyed ice cold water from our Big Box refrigerated container, and our containers served as event offices too.
