Title: WCOC Sandveld - Redelinghuys Off-Road 26 July
Post by: Offroad2 on May 19, 2014, 11:39:33 am
WCOC next Off-Road race will be mostly Sand - yes we need one sand race each year.
In the wet winter West Coast sand is a much better option than mud  :thumleft:

Redelinghuys 65km north west of Piketberg

Looks like a great venue for the race  :thumleft:

Will there be a ladies intro class again?
Title: Re: WCOC Sandveld - Redelinghuys Off-Road 26 July
Post by: Offroad2 on May 19, 2014, 12:29:34 pm
Hi Garfield

Yes Ladies  Intro class will run through out the year, they will ride the junior track 12-14km, it is somewhat sandy but they need to gain experience.
Will update once we start layout - will be mindful as we prepare for juniors & ladies

Title: Re: WCOC Sandveld - Redelinghuys Off-Road 26 July
Post by: Offroad2 on June 09, 2014, 03:21:24 pm
@ Buff  - Cathy will keep the flag flying - hope you heal soon

@ Bill - Only Ladies intro class & juniors on the blue loop (14km).
Once Ocket has done a timed run we will make a final call on laps or hours.
2011 we made it a bit on the long side so for now we taken out about 8km in the top section. There are a few added new semi technical sections.
The regional competitors who ride three hours + 1 lap will still be as is.
Social & two hour classes are in for two laps, however one lap will still count as a finish.
Hope to see you down for this one, think Weskus is coming down too.

My guess this race will see top quads & bikes with similar overall times.

@ Cracker we hope to make an announcement soon to host back 2 back races in Ceres Kouebokkeveld 18/19 Oct.
Will be inviting all competitors from up North, Botswana, Namibia who might like to freight their bikes/quads to Cpt - we will down load them get them to Ceres & loaded back for JHB or where ever, this way you would only need to hire a small car (or group together).
Plans are underway for two tracks, quads & bikes switch over on day two with racing finishing aprox 2pm each day, allows time afterwards.
Soon we hope to have final permissions in place & start with invitations to all interetsed. :thumleft:

18th October is the final round of this years GOC, so response from the vaalies might not be great.
However, it's just a club race so the national/regional riders will be available.
Good luck with your plans and keep us in the loop, you never know ...........................

Dave how many kms per loop and is it big bike friendly/possible?
is it similar to the velddrif race of last year???
lat my weet mag dalk kom afkak...
Title: Re: WCOC Sandveld - Redelinghuys Off-Road 26 July
Post by: Offroad2 on June 23, 2014, 06:32:02 pm
Tour SNR  loop = 30/35km  it is tougher than Velddrif due to elevation & some twisties + couple semi tech sections which are rideable  :ricky:
What do you plan to ride ? - anything bigger than 650/690 will be PURE  AFK......K due to holding momentum (but i'm not the specialist)
Kobus Potgieter is also keen - pm or call me can chat , we love having the big bikes (the youngsters are still talikng about the rally bikes @ Velddrif), brings a new dimension - or borrow a plastic  :thumleft:
Dave is coming up sat & will ask him to do a SNR loop & comment   :deal:

Going up Saturday, myself I'm curious.
I have no doubt you'll make it, I'll confirm the amount of blood, seat and tears.

A good plan indeed, one should always aspire and theorize   :biggrin:  it might rub off on reality.
Do you guys plan on staying over?

First 10 km is mostly hard pack, rock shelf, rock dongas, ups downs. then sand twisties, a few straights & back to a few flowing sandy dongas before pits.
Some quarry style riding for spectators near the pits   ;D

Got it, and will check it out tomorrow morning.

To all that is not club members, medical insurance is compulsory, you have a choice:

1. Get a letter from your medical aid that states you are covered for a motorsport event - it is a no-problem procedure, you phone your medical aid help line, they know exactly what to do, and will sent it, but it takes a day or two, so rather sooner than later.

It does not reflect on your account, and your premiums does not get affected.

You need to attach it to your entry.

2. Take out MSA Medical insurance, and indicate on your entry the fact that yoou are, it costs R 238.00

Leave Jan out of it, as it is he needs to get to a point, fly his spy plane, pack up, overtake the lot of you  :pot: , fly his plane.

C'mon, you have ridden the area, now you have the opportunity to access terrain that you have not had access to before, and will not after the race.

Mmmm interesting  :snorting:

Come settle the 2T vs 4T debate.   :pot:

Dave, I like the track, and given your Atlantis training, very do-able.
I went out last Saturday with King Clive, and loved it - I was also quite stiff afterwards, for the first time in a very long time , and on Sunday, every time I felt my old muscles, I had to smile at the good time I had.

The race also comes with a guarantee   :deal:   - you will work hard, sweat a lot and end up appreciating your finishers medal.

It is not overly technical, just tight and unrelenting - and your bike being set up, it should be plug 'n play.

Can I send you the complete document pack - I know you want to.  :thumleft:

Last Chance!!!

End of the month will see ANOTHER massive hike in petrol price, so this is probably the cheapest race that you will do....ever again.

(Souding like a Verimark add) But wait there is more...

Whilst sitting at home today, Clive and Ockert went the extra mile and finished up the marking of the track, and from what I saw yesterday, it is superb.

The land owners is fully committed to the event, the catering and refreshments will be top notch.

What is more, there will be a drone, a fixed wing plane and a camara man on the ground capturing the action - you will be able to easily Google and proof your racing prowess afterwards, just shunt it from the word go, and then have a laugh at yor buddies mishaps.  :evil6:

Racers from as far as Upington and Kakamas is attending, and some well known national riders as well.

The track:

Went out there yesterday with serious misgivings after the heavy rainfall during the week - completely unfounded.
Had a camara, but had so much fun twisting the throttle that I completely forgot about it..

The sand was firm and I could rail the berms one after the other - almost trance like.

So guys and gals - miss this one at your own peril!

Consider this a warning - entries close on Wednessday, 23 July 2014

Dewald (box of the Best - these farmers grow potatoes, drink wine & brandy, maybe you can brew some moonshine)

Loop is 28 KM - my guess top guys 40-45min per loop (3yrs ago loop was 38km took top guys +1 hour  Brett Lewis nogal)
Shorter & little more technical this time but proper workout. :lol8:
Juniors have a nice free flowing loop too  :thumleft:

Quads will do the bikes a big favour by flattening the deep ruts in first 10km - yes some are going to get stuck in some places but it will be good after the first 5-10 quads have opened it up and filled the deep ruts.

Key words MOMENTUM MOMENTUM where you see sandy banks & uphill pieces, GAS it they are misleading and can trap you - enuf said.

Please note: with Friday rain, the gravell road from the village to pits (1.5km) will get muddy & slippery BUT it is hard under the mud - two wheel drive cars will be able to get to pits.

entries are coming nicely - thank you !

Hi Dave,

Can the kiddies that are not racing ride on the kiddie track? My son (7) is on a CRF 50. No MSA license, no boots or body armor. Ride with helmet and elbow/knee guards.

Would like to bring him along for the fun. Will pay for him off course.

Thx.

Ag nooit man, is this still from the off you had with Simon or did you have another one after that? Sorry to hear it bud, hope you heal up soon. Take it easy.

Mine's getting there, slowly but surely thx. The leg feels great but my right hip is giving me endless grief  :(

It is all related to the off I had with Simon. The back I actually hurt in the gym a week after the off, but I suspect that it was already injured due to the off and the session in the gym just highlighted it.

Good to hear that you are recovering well; what is the issue with the hip?

155 Entries so far..

It is going to be just awesome.

Mom joining us on Saturday, me and the 2 laaities camping till Sunday, let's see.

@Chris

The kiddie track shares sections with the Junior track, so it will be problematic, but if you can fit the bike in, bring it with and let's see if we can make a plan somewhere, sometime.

A lot of rain and mud, got a fair bot of footage here and there where the rain stopped or the drizzle was soft enough for me to risk flying. not the shots I had hoped to get but well worth the practice.

Editing now so will be a week or more

I never raced but getting in and out of the pits in the my bakkie in that mudfest was exciting enough for me  ;) I've never seen so many vehicles recovered by a tractor in my life, that farmer and his helpers each deserve a race medal  ;) I don't have race photos but I have a few around pit lane which I'll post a little later  :thumleft:

Well done to WCOC for putting on a great race in very difficult conditions. All things considering, I think you guys did an outstanding job  :thumleft:

I R Knackered.   :deal:

Started riding, pre running my two tracks at first light, by 10:00 I was soaked and chilled to the bone.

Finished the sweeping just after 16:00.

Well done to all the racers that came out to support a "far" race, braved the weather and mud in the pits - it was trying at best.

Some more RR from me later -  I need to get the mud of everything first.

@N[]va, thank you for your effort, the vids you showed us at the campsite Friday is pretty amazing top notch stuff - I was sorry that I couldn't watch any more, but duty called.

I spend 3 hours to do one loop.  40km I think.  I basically pushed my 250 4T up a million dunes and crashed everywhere there was a convenient spot.  Got back to Upington late yesterday.  I'm going to have to powerwash my bike on the bakkie to be able to move it.  The chain is solid.

Somehow in my honeymoon-addled brain I thought doing an off-road race on antibiotics was a good idea (yes, I did get in trouble on my return home :)) and felt like goldilocks' baby sister trying to wrestle a python in a mudpit. Lost badly and gave up on first lap. Paid price yesterday... Disappointing - it was an amazing track and there was real fun to be had. Kudos to the orbs!!

PS > There was a great Erzberg-style hill right at the end of the lap, within view of the pits. Saw some spectacular action - someone must have great pix?

What an Awesome Track ! well done to the organisers ! you certainly created a wonderful route with a bit of everything   and the sand sections were just right , not too soft and not too muddy.   If u had momentum you were on your way !

Wonderful to see so many people braving what turned out to be a great days racing even with crazy weather !

Hope Clive's injury is not too bad and that he will be up on his bike and doing his thing soon ! If anyone has the video footage or photos of the incident please let us all know where we can see them . i hear it was quite spectacular !! 
Mary-anne you have a tough one there !!

To all the riders and supporters , well done and congratulations !   

It was a privilege to ride around up down thru across over into  under around etc etc that great mountain and terrain !

A GREAT THANKS TO THE WCOC CLUB AND TEAM FOR A WONDERFUL RIDE !     

DAN :)

Photos coming later ... but please anyone tell us where there are pics of the event as i was on track the morning so i would love to see some shots of the event from any time - tell us the website url ... utube , FB or anywhere ? Post it here please

Thank you to all that attended & braved the weather - never was going to be easy with heavy rain four weeks in a row.
As  mentioned this track would test competitors, it was possibly a bit harsh on the less fit riders however we have to try to mix the tracks up with variety.
Riebeeck West was fast , hot & sandy
Bot River heights undulating off-camber
Redelinghys sandy, rocky, tight and tuff.

@ Bill and all you guys from northern cape comming from far HUGE THAN YOU  for attending tuff race but you you would take a lot from it.
Will talk to the committee about a country membership & entry fee for those further then 200km - somehow we must try assit.
Chris, great to see you again - next time enter your little one, we take good care of them  :thumleft:
@ Jan - thanks for your efforts , wish i have more time but on raceday i run raggered - cant wait to see what you captured.
@ Ian better luck next time hope you feel better.
@ Dewald better luck - trust your ribs are not too bad.
@ Dave thanks for all your hard work - you know we appreciate it.

Well we got hammered by bad weather four weekends in a row, then on Friday, race day & until yesterday 2 pm so it was sure to be a tuff weekend.
The committee, competitors, crews & helpers were resilient in those conditions - still lots of smiles.

Ladies intro class was a blast - good to see them in high spirits (we need more ladies in this class)
Youngsters had ding dong battles - some serious talent coming through the ranks.
Interesting - fastest overall time Dylan on a Beta 300  &  2nd fastest overall time Kevin on a YFZ 450 quad.

Was great fun despite the weather.

I got one or two really awesome clips, the rain was really stopping me from getting the 5+km chase footage I was hoping for, just a quick look at the footage last night I think there will be somewhere around 20 minutes of usable video.

Hope to have something for you all in the next week or two

Here's a shot of a rider tackling the huge hill at the finish line. I thought it was a great idea that they added this monster in the route (probably because I wasn't riding  >:D) as it set the scene of a mini Romaniacs. Eventually spectators were standing on top of the hill dragging the less skilled and knackered riders up with ropes. It really added to a great atmosphere  :thumleft:

Sorry about the poor photo quality, this was shot on my iphone at some distance as I couldn't climb with crutches.
If anyone had a decent camera there they would have shot some awesome photos of the carnage later in the race.

So I had really hoped to get more like 3-4 hours of footage to work with but with all the rain I got maybe 25 minutes worth, I will have some other clips that I will edit and get up but they didnt really fit into the feel of what I ended up with.

Also not really enough footage to time it to the music much, sorry guys.

With any luck the weather for the Woescter race will be better

While we're at the lost and found section, I lost a valve somewhere in the whoops section.  If someone finds a 4T KTM valve, please toss it off the track, it might cause a puncture.  Made it all the way to the end with only 3 valves, though.  Tough little bastard.  After cooling down, no further starting.
