Would so love to race it but I'm too nervous I lack the talent required to complete one lap  :-[

Yes but imagine how much you will learn  ;D

I once attempted the Winterberg; it rained the whole weekend that year. The race was honestly my worst ever nightmare. It took me 8 hours to do my one and only lap. But even today, years later, I use the experience gained from those dreadful 8 hours.

I believe there's a difference between learning and suffering and the two should seldom by combined, otherwise you simply learn to suffer  ;D

Truth be told, if I hadn't sold the KDX I would probably have given it a go but at the moment I've only got the WR450 in the stable and tackling it on that is simple insanity  :o.

If all goes according to plan, the Winterberg later in the year is going to be my maiden enduro race as well. Let's just hope the rain stays away  ;)

Sien julle daar!! Ekt al baie al daar gery, en daar is niks wat onmoontlik is soos 'n helse step-up of iets dergliks, dis net in-your-face riverbeds, en off-cambers. Kry die off-camber verkeerd, en dan dit 'n baie lang, en baie moeilikke pad terug. Kannie waggie! Ek ry 362, so baie hulp nodig as julle my sien! Onthou net die R60 tussen Swellendam en Ashton is toe. Daars 'n klein pothole in die pad, en 4 Tippers, en paar escavators is in die gaatjie besig om te backfill die afgelope 4 maande.
