Jdog when and how much is the endurance adventure next year.  My fitness level is to such a point where i wanna gym while riding on the bike.  Must your bike meet some standards?  Will my 130 kilogram bike be too heavy?   One thing that i saw whas that you must be able to climb the impossible steep rock hills aswell as downhills?  Almost like downhill tracks for mountain bikes. 

I would assume that a light weight crf 250 total offroad scrambler might be the best ine to use or even the wr or yz?

Hey, I'm not expert, but a CRF would be fine - ask Edgy!

I am getting a Husaberg 250.

There are about 12 local events next year, including the Winterberg and some easier ones.

It's all about fitness and technique. And making it fun!

Anyway, the other enduro gods will be able to advise you better.

I must approach our local forestry for this type of event in george.  There are over 80 km trails in and around our area.  It would be a boost for our local economy aswell.

Cassie

Come join me for a ride one weekend, it is more like 800km of trails and single tracks between George and Karatara. :mwink:
Spent this weekend riding some of the best tracks and fire breaks in the plantations just outside Sedgefield, if I could carry more fuel, I could have ridden to Karatara.

I'm also entering the scene next year, still deciding in which province to compete....i'm in the middle (George) between the Western cape and Eastern cape. ??? Let me know when you'r in the area, I try to ride 3-4 hours every weekend, albeit with my humble little KDX 200 (will get a newer/better bike if I do well  enough).
Yes, fitness is everything, will have to train hard this December. :ricky:
