How good should one's riding skills be to be able to qualify?

Specialised Adventures are best equipped to answer those questions.  Without talking on their behalf; you donít need to be a riding god to participate.  Itís an extraordinary event for ordinary people.

From experience I would say headspace and attitude over skill - go for it!

You'll never know if you don't have a go. Mojaki Rammoneng from last year deservedly won it with his partner Claude Deyzel. Mojak's had only been on gravel once before! At boot camp, he fell off on his first corner of gravel. It must be said though, that his learning curve was near vertical and he has huge nuts and exceptional attitude. Also, it is impossible to win it without good teamwork so the both of them worked well together.

Edgar, riding skills is only one of a number of criteria that the marshals are looking at. It is not nearly as important as many might believe. I would rate the following as important: teamwork, functioning under stress, positive lookout, sharing your experience and knowledge, etc etc (I hope you get the idea)
The organizers also wants the participants to learn out of the experience and "walk out a richer man". 

Many people has asked me to explain the Honda Quest experience to them. It is much bigger than what we think and although it is impossible to sum it up in one paragraph this explanation nails it pretty accurately:

Since I'm not on facebook or that birdie thing, I'll post my assignment  here.

So how does it feel to be chosen for boot-camp?

Fanfarkingtasic!! But also apprehensive and a bit nervous. On the one hand I'm trying to figure out how on earth was I chosen out of more than a 1000 entrants while on the other hand I'm trying my best not to jump out of my skin.
How do you qualify for something  you know nothing about?? To me it's like taking my adventure bike on an unexplored trip. No matter how many hours you spend on Google earth and Basecamp you simply don't know what lies ahead, but you know it will be fun and you can't wait to take off.

Covid 19 and the subsequent lockdown forced us to postpone the event.
In the meantime Kobus Myburgh started a new business, and true to form became very busy overnight. He decided to step down as instructor to keep an eye on his business and we appointed Claude Deysel (one of the 2018 Quest winners) in his place. He will be partnered with Scrat (Gerrit du Toit) and between them the contestants will have plenty of Quest experience to feed of from. 

We also asked Visarend and Mev. Visarend to assist Chantal Burger with the catering on Quest. Louis and Nannie Roux are good friends of mine and I can promise you that the contestants will not go hungry. I have recently visited the areas where where the riders will compete and were spoiled to Louis's cooking.
Oubones will take charge of the Unimog and I am looking forward to see how the big Mog performs, compared to the recently departed Iveco.

Kamanya will be the media liaison officer (even though we know that he would rather compete as a contestant). He will also add another twist to Quest, but you guys will have to wait to see what it is.

Willie Venter from Kalon Films will make sure you guys get the fantastic footage early every morning on the Honda Quest - True Adventure You Tube channel.

The new Quest dates are 5-14 October

Cheers
Hardy

Jou menu lyk/klink amper soos die jong vriend van my pa oorgekom het. Toe hy getroud is was Toppers net die inding en ek dink nie sy vrou was n gebore kok.
Drie maande na hul troue eet hulle vir die eerste keer weer by ons en hy kyk die tafel so en sÍ/vra "is dit wat die res van die populasie eet?"!!!
Ek dink hy het so bietjie koue boud gekry oor daai sÍ, maar toe eet die man al drie maande net Toppers in alle flavours!!! :o :lol8:

Hi JT

Yes, one day before level 1 was announced, our government asked the automotive industry not to host ANY event that might cause a covid sread within 45 days after their request. .
Honda asked me to move the date, which we did. (Costly exercise)
This same government announced level 1 the next day with a restriction of 500 people at outdoor events.
You cant make this shit up... :laughing4:
