Dear Lenore & Wayne – now that i have a had a few days to sit back and reflect on my TranCape experience it is difficult to put in words what an AWESOME event you two have created. I was so privileged to be a participant. This is the first time post doing a 7 day plus event that i am experiencing withdrawal symptoms! I generally don’t repeat an event as there are so many I still want to do, BUT this will become an annual pilgrimage for me now. TransCaper for life…………thanks so muchMax
I would like to add my compliments and congratulations to the voices of all the others that have already thanked you for last week’s race. Your whole team – and the dads and mums that joined in to help – put together an extremely memorable and superbly organised event. The South African mtb calendar fills up by the day, but to succeed in producing a memory maker of an event you have to fill it with special ingredients; the TransCape did that, and then still gave us more. Thank you all so much for a special week.Kevin
In regards the race and its organisation it was an extremely successful and class event that truly showcased the Cape in all respects from amazing scenery to warm local town hospitality. It was a niche group of riders, mostly businessmen and woman who all had nothing but high praise for a passionate bunch of organisers who delivered and exceeded on all promises. Every day was an amazing tour through our beautiful country from one little town after the other with 5 star treatment in the evenings.
Well done team – that was really something special.

As I struggle to get back to the reality of the normal daily routine my mind is wondering back to last week. What an experience, so much more remarkable is the fact that it was the first one. From a rider perspective it seemed like a long established event. All I can say is WOW!
It all started with the exceptional pre-race service and help, whenever there was an issue it was sorted swiftly. Then of course the race itself. We laughed, we got grumpy, we had to dig deep, we were exhausted, but the fun factor was always there. That is a sure sign of a friendly bunch of people organising an amazing event.
Some choice words came out on the route from time to time! Times like that last little climb into Swellendam (Yes Wayne, those were for you J), but all was forgiven at the finish when a cold beer was on offer.
Thank you for the memories, the new friends and just and incredible time. I will be back!Ebbe
A big thanks, to you and Wayne for putting the TransCape together, it certainly is a journey! one every cyclist must put on their “Bikeit” list.
Thanks to Leana and her media crew, Thanks to Corne and her logistics crew, to the chef, the water table staff, the medics, Dr Brice, the drivers, security, mechanics, thanks to Jenni, thanks to my fellow TransCapers, and everyone else involved who made this event the success it was. Met wonderful people and made many new friends
Thanks for the last nights dinner in the tractor museum, it was truly Special, you guys went above and beyond for us. And Thanks for the original Elliot painting, will forever be a reminder of the time I had at TransCape 2015, some very tough moments, and many more happy memories, a hard ride, but as someone once said, “if it was easy then everyone would do it, hard is what makes it worthwhile”Clive
We had to pull out of the race after day two due to a ITB and meniscus tear. Very sad day for us!
I would like to congratulate the whole team for an absolute faultless race, even if we just experienced 2 days! The organization from A-Z was great! I think the difference was the passion that was so obvious from everyone involved and it was genuine! I love being in nature and on my bike; it should be fun but still competitive and the TransCape tick all the boxes! Special mention to Billy and the team from tours4sa; cannot name all, everyone was great! We hope to be back and injury free! Please pass on to the team! You guys rock and the embodiment of what mtb should be about! Please, please keep the passion!Henning and Perren

Net ‘n kort boodskap van dank!
Julle span het ‘n 7 jaar droom vir span Dopey en Cutter laat realiseer.
Nie net het ons die ” journey” van daardie ander race beleef nie, maar in absolute styl en met ‘n groot bederf! Die gerief in die gaste huise, klere wat gewas word, fietse wat gediens word ,5 ster etes,bederf by die waterpunte en wenstreep elke dag met ‘n koue lappie en bier en al die vriendelike gesigte , wat veral ouens soos ons wat nie altyd so baie tyd het vir oefen nie en nie saam met die racing snakes kan jaag nie,laat vasbyt het om die toer te voltooi!
Voorwaar ‘n boutique race met ‘n klomp great deelnemers wat amper te goed was om waar te wees. Dit was ook agv die aantal deelnemers wat min was in vergelyking met ander “multi stage races”‘n baie meer persoonlike, en aangename ondervinding wat sommer al op dag twee my ‘n familie gevoel gegee het!
Baie dankie vir ‘n onvergeetlike ondervinding!
Baie dankie vir al die reelings wat jy ook vir my Pa (Dirk) getref het!Dit was ‘n besondere voorreg om hom saam met ons die toer te kon laat meemaak al kon hy nie self trap nie!Gary
Competes with any prestige stage race out there. Awesome organisation. Great food and luxury accommodation. Will def be back 2016. A must do.Mia
