a four day mtb stage race

PEPLETT - 4 day mountainbike stage race

The 2018 staging of Fedgroup PEPLETT, an incredible MTB adventure, will start at Kurland Polo Field, near Plettenberg Bay and finish at Crossways, just outside Port Elizabeth.   The weather was so good to us in 2017, we're sticking to the recipe, so this year it will run from 1 - 4 March.
