Judging by the graphics, that is my old bike. Think I have seen you there before out on the track. Interesting question: do you know how long it takes you to complete? I once timed it at 18 minutes. Not sure if it is slow or not.

This is a loop around Ground Zero in 13:30. Video courtesy of Kobus, the owner.

Really, no way, did you sell the bike to Gary Whitehouse? Hehehe..anything I should know about? :)

No idea, should really time myself, but it will probably be slowish, really just started enduro.

Seems that the neigbouring land owners put up a fight. Forced the owner who he leases from to shut it down. What a huge loss for bikers in GP.

Try Wild West, just down the road. Green route do-able on a DS bike but there's plenty stones - bit like De Wildt


Red route and DS won't mix .............. >:D
