Cleat in and watch the first instalment of our PE PLETT video series with Dr. Mike Posthumus and David Knee, Prudential CIO. In this episode we discuss various ways to maximise your training as well as debunk some widespread cycling myths.

We’ve partnered with the Sports Science Institute (SA) to help with your training

We know that overnight success in the saddle is the result of hours of consistent hard work and training. To ensure that you ride your best race this year, all of our riders will receive a professional training programme specifically designed by Dr. Mike Posthumus from the Sports Science Institute of South Africa.
To activate your training programme, please complete the following steps:

1. Create a free TrainingPeaks account (if you haven’t already done so). To do this, visit or download the app on your phone.

2. Click here to answer four short questions. This will help us get a better understanding of your current fitness level and experience.

3. Once you have created your TrainingPeaks account and answered the four questions, click here to assign Dr. Mike and Prudential as your training partners on TrainingPeaks.

As there is no time bar on the Prudential PE PLETT even a social mountain
biker could complete the TOUGH One. With daily distances not exceeding
90km and elevation averaging at 1500m per day its TOUGH but very achievable.


The LITE is designed for those social riders with an average daily distances
of 60km and elevation of 1200m.
The fact that you can rub shoulders with
the pros and ride a common route for at least 70% of the time makes the
LITE category extremely appealing.
