Fedgroup PE Plett 

The Fedgroup PE PLETT is staged between Plettenberg Bay and Port Elizabeth and is undoubtedly the most diverse stage race on the planet. The route reverses every year with the March 2018 route starting at the beautiful Kurland Polo Fields, exposing the field of 250 riders to the beauty of Natures Valley, Otters Trail , Cape Pine Forest, Tsitiskamma Dairy farms , the Gamtoos valley and the day 4 finish at Crossways is the highlight as riders bomb down the single track playground of the 3 Rivers trails.

The 2018 edition will see some major route changes with a new village at Brakkeduine near Oyster Bay and this will make the ride a lot easier than in previous years with the tough Suuranys mountains no longer in the mix. There are 2 categories , the one is “The Tough One” which many see as a great warm up ride to the Epic and the LITE which attracts those real weekend warrriors and have them rubbing shoulders with the PRO’s in the festive Chill Zone where beer and wine is on the house .
