We are really excited about IsuzuTrucks PEPlett 2015!
PEPlett – 4 day Mountain Bike stage race between Port Elizabeth and Plettenberg bay –
Its more than a ride … its an Adventure!
The 2nd year of PE PLETT and year one for Isuzu Trucks as title sponsor was a resounding success and the strapline “ The Tough One” says it all . Many referred to the event as the “Mini Epic” and is the perfect playground to test your MTB skill and fitness.
The commitment by Craig Uren COO of Isuzu Trucks to a minimum of 3 years is exciting and we expect PE PLETT to grow from strength to strength
The 2015 #IsuzuTrucksPEPlett entries are open, don’t miss out…
The 2015 route
The route in 2015 will once again reverse and the start will be at Wedgewood Country Estate outside of Port Elizabeth and the finish will be quite dramatic as the riders cross the Keurbooms River by floating bridge and onto the finish line at Forever Resorts.
The distances for each day will be less than 100km with Day 4 being 60km into the Finish Line.
We have moved the race 1 week earlier to accommodate the busy calendar. The 2015 event will see the riders depart PE on Thurs 3 September and arrive in Plett some 4 days later on Sunday 6th September.

Isuzu Trucks take on PE cycle challenge
“The PE to Plett race highlights the beauty of South Africa and the course of this race is much like our vehicles – tough – meant to be endured” – Isuzu Truck South Africa Chief Operations Officer, Craig Uren
Isuzu Truck South Africa’s roots are in the Eastern Cape with its assembly plant, however the organisation is pledging more than economic support to the region, with its title sponsorship of the PE to Plett mountain biking challenge.
