Jeep Team's Dylan Rebello wins Tour de Plett

Jeep Team’s Dylan Rebello claimed victory at the 85-km Tour de Plett MTB race finishing in 3:41:00, ahead of second-placed Neill Ungerer (3:41:02) and Neil Clark in 3rd (3:41:23). Tour de Plett was held in the Garden Route, Rabello’s home ground, on Saturday 10th October 2015. The Tour de Plett is considered one of the most scenic MTB races in South Africa, treating riders to a spectacular route of challenging climbs, jeep tracks and single tracks through the Garden Route’s indigenous forests, game reserves and pristine coastline.

Commented Rebello, a Knysna local and former junior African cross-country champion, “What a great day out at the 5th Tour De Plett. This is always a great event with absolutely stunning views of the coast and was made even better this year with a new route and a few floating bridges. Thanks to Jeep South Africa for supporting me, Cadence Nutrition for fuelling me through the windy conditions, and POC South Africa for keeping the wind out of my eyes. I’m really happy to come away with the win!”
