The bespoke TransCape Stage Race has changed ownership recently after an acquisition by Faces, which is also the company who acquired the majority stake in Advendurance, Warrior Race, Cape Town Marathon and Otter trail run earlier this year.  The TransCape founder, Lenore Collett, will remain as co-owner and Race Director of the event. 

Lenore Collett will work in conjunction with Fritz Pienaar (Advendurance) to be the primary driving force in this very exciting new chapter of the TransCape journey.

Fritz Pienaar says “I worked on Trans Cape in 2019 and fell in love with the event.  The TransCape MTB Stage Race has a very special model, as it is the only luxury, travelling, week-long stage race in the country.  It is the ideal event for the more discerning rider, who would like to drink good wine and sleep in a comfy bed, while riding through the most beautiful parts of the country.  We are glad to have this event in the family and we look forward to hosting many great additions in the future.” 

Lenore Collett shares “TransCape has always been very personal to me and the vision to establish it as the world’s premier boutique mtb event my top priority.  I couldn’t be more excited to welcome my new partners in the TransCape journey!  We share the same vision, and the added passion, energy and expertise they bring ensures that TransCape is ready for the next exciting phase of this amazing journey.  To all our old and potential first time participants, you do not want to miss TC2020!”
