Check out this bit of insanely good riding.  :drif:
Watch him hunt down the faster guys in the technical stuff, its really riveting stuff - well to me anyway!  :laughing7:




If only I could ride a little like this man.... ::)

Jarvis to me is the all time best Extreme Enduro rider on the planet. At 42yrs old he is a master of his trade. He is definitely the most consistent rider. Its a pity there is no Official Extreme Enduro world championship so he could be crowned a "World Champion' . Not sure how much longer he can continue his winning ways as there are lots of young guns coming up through the ranks but for now he is handing out riding lessons.

Absolutely agree - He's so bloody consistent and the epitome of his nickname "The silent assasin". He will always be known to be THE Extreme Enduro champion, even if it's unofficial.

BUT I fear his reign is starting to come to an end and we might see the fall within the next year.

He is so legit I agreed to let him take a pic with me :lol8:

He is a very down to earth guy also. Never shoots his mouth off - a trait I admire in people. I used to own the bike he rode on the 2012 "Roof - the year Wade won, and Altus De wet came second (I think it was Altus in 2nd?). I sold the bike in January, and can still kick myself. At least it lives with an enthusiast and a fellow WD now.

Amazing, considering he is a good 20 years older than many of the other top riders.

Geriatric, but still kicking young ass! Probably would have won the first hard enduro of the year on the weekend - Alestrem -  if he hadn't smashed his clutch perch. Left the pits 10mins back after a quick repair, and still made it to 2nd! The old goat is redefining what is possible for a creaking body destined for the dustbin. Go Graham!!

He has been changing between 2T and 4T bikes on a regular basis between events throughout his career - all depends on the race and conditions.

Amazing stuff! Some of the rocky bits in the first video seems to be impossible without some magic :-)

Here he is again absolutely killing it on a 4T.

Has anyone noticed that If your initials are GJ, you most likely a kick ass rider. Check Gideon Joubert in his 50ís also still making it look easy...

Jarvis is the real deal....very,very good and a thinking hard enduro champion.Sure, the young kamikaze breed is chasing very hard and beats him now and then - but, at more than 20 years older than the youngsters,the maestro is in a class of his own.Go Grumps  :thumleft:

Well he did it again. Losing a lot of time at the start he passes about 30 guys to take the win!!

Graham might be the gnarliest guy to ever throw a leg over a bike. Still killing it, getting faster and better with age.

This is helluva entertaining watch for anyone into racing. Vision starts getting better at about 05:30

Ja, watched the Erzberg highlights a few nights ago. Another come-from-behind win, crazy stuff.

Romaniacs is on NOW !! GJ going for his 7th win. This morning he was in 18th now in 4th. 4 days still to go and its raining. This man is a legend , just not sure why he has not been given a MBE like David Knight.

If you like these videos, check out the ertzberg by one of us mortals in comparison.

This guy is a far better rider than I ever will be but he still smashed his front fender off, had a few spectacular crashes, boiled his engine, knocked a hole in it, and finally got a rock shot into his balls. ;D

Spectacular:
