2017-01-12 06:01

The FedGroup PE Plett, South Africa’s premier 4-day mountain bike stage race, will will take place from 2-5 March 2017.

The incredibly scenic event gives mountain bikers an exciting traverse along the coast from the Eastern Cape to the Western Cape, or vice versa, as the route changes direction each year, one of the event’s unique attractions.

There are two event options: The Tough One will cover a total of 320km with stages ranging in distance from 65km to 95km, while The Lite One will cover a total of 240km with stages ranging in distance from 45km to 75km.

The 2017 edition will run from PE to Plett and will incorporate a variety of challenging and stimulating regions, including the 3 Rivers Trials, the Suuranys Mountains, Cape Pine Forests, Storms River, Bloukrans, Tsitsikama Mountains, Nature’s Valley and The Otter Trail.
