Dink nie ek gaan nie, maar het 2 weke terug laas jaar se roete daar van Witsieshoek af gedoen. Awesome roete. Van die sections krimp jou balle maar diep in jou lyf in.
Baie lekker om te sien hoe en waar ry die manne wat kan, William Gillit was saam met ons....

William is n great coach, moerse geduldig met baie kennis. Ek is moerse onfiks, het lekker afgekak maar hulle help gedurig. Was vrek styf vir n paar dae....

Een reel wat jy sommer nou al moet memorise, plaas gewig op die buitenste footpeg op offcambers! Daar is baie off cambers....

Moet se, ek het nou al n kompie kere daar gery maar die keer was dit op my 300 en dis amper soos cheating...

Ja daai Freeride lyk soos n Qwa Qwa weapon.
Solank jou 450 n happy button het en dalk n fan en radiator overflow bottle, sal jy fine wees. Dis nou as jy so stadig soos ek ry natuurlik....

Jammer ETS, sien gister in my Enduroworld die Augustus Madalas is in Roma. Ek het die Qwa Qwa Madalas roete gedoen. Roma kan seker net moeiliker wees..... :pot:

ETS, I'll see you there....a first for me too

Will also be on a 450 - not too keen on off-cambers though.

too old, and useless, for the real roof so thought I'd give this madala thing a go

ETS, ek het die Madalas al 2 keer gedoen. Die eerste keer op 'n 450 en die 2de keer op 'n 300. Baie makliker op die 300.
Augustus se Madalas is in Sefikeng, moerse lekker roetes daar maar plek plek lekker tegnies. Ek besluit nog of ek gaan of nie. Was verlede naweek in Lesotho gewees en het die Roof Vrydag bronz roete gery.

Hier is 'n paar foto's om jou 'n idee te gee van die oppervlaktes wat julle gaan ry. Vat ook baie drinkgoed en energie eetgoed saam.
