First Choice® partnered with Trans Baviaans 2016, the biggest MTB race in the Eastern Cape. You can look forward to some excellent products at all our checkpoints, ranging from desserts to High Protein Recovery drinks. All milk is sourced from pasture fed cows in the beautiful Eastern Cape and locally produced by Woodlands Dairy. We hope you are as excited as we are to taste those flavoured milk drinks when you need it most at 1am in the morning out there en-route in the Baviaans Kloof.


Trans Talk Road Show
This year we will embark on a new venture as part of the preparations for the Trans Baviaans, the Trans Talk Road Show. We will be visiting the main centers, with Johannesburg being the first in March, to provide you with an informative presentation and an opportunity to raise your questions and discuss the event in general. These talks will be at the Sportsmanswarehouse outlets. More information on the schedule and how to attend will be made available shortly through social media and on the website.

Trans Baviaans Merchandise
