As organizers of PEPLETT race we're proud of our sponsors.

Fedgroup title sponsor PEPlett

This sixth edition of the PE Plett, South Africa’s premier four-day mountain bike stage race, is the second year we have FedGroup as our title sponsor.

About FedGroup

Established in 1990, FedGroup has grown into South Africa’s leading independent financial services group. Our independence has allowed us to develop our own point-of-view on the business of insurance and investment. We put people before profit. We believe in old-fashioned ideas like honesty, integrity, and dignity. And we place a lot of value in our dedicated and committed staff.

The financial services industry can be a complicated one. We aim to simplify.

So we invest in smart technology. But, more importantly, we also invest in our staff. How else will our clients get the quality service they need when they need it?

We are leaders in what we do. But that doesn’t mean we’ll ever lose the personal touch.

This range is all the more appealing to those who are conscious about what they put into their bodies, is that the PUREFIT SERIES contains no artificial colourants, flavourants, sweeteners or preservatives, all of which may negatively influence performance, recovery and adaptation to activities.

Routes

Isuzu Trucks PEPlett - sponsor cape pineCape Pine nurtures, tends and harvests extensive tracts of forest from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. We hold a deep love and respect for the forest, in a tradition of South African woodcutters which can be traced back over 150 years. Our forests don't represent a commodity, but a perpetual ecosystem. And through our long-term commitment the quality of our wood, and our trees will be sustained for decades to come.
On average we plant three pine seedlings every minute of every day, throughout the year so when you find the badge 'eco-timber' or 'enviro-timber' on our wood, you know it's been earned.

We are also passionate about sharing this beautiful and unique environment. We offer outdoor activities like hiking, biking, fishing, so you can come experience the forest we love for yourself!
We manage the six day, 60Km long Tsitsikamma Mountain Trail as well. A favorite with many hikers.
