The new dates of 2 – 5 March and the fact that the month of March only has 3 stage races on the cycling calendar will greatly assist the growth of this race.

“Getting involved with PE PLETT made sense on a number of levels for FedGroup,” says Brett Field, Creative Director of FedGroup. “We promote a healthy lifestyle among our staff members and many are already avid cyclists. As a family-owned business that grew into the country’s largest independent financial services group, we believe that FEDGROUP PE PLETT can achieve something similar and grow to become one of the premier dates on the SA cycling calendar. The scenic surrounds also provide a perfect backdrop for our brand. The merits of sponsoring this event were therefore clear to us from the outset.”
