Okay, here are the start orders, and time for the liaison as well as the special for stage 1:




The guys have 05h36 minutes to reach the start of the special without penalty.
Apparently there are some stop-and-goes that they are not allowed to slip past on pain of penalties.
The organisation thinks they will take 4-5 hours to finish the special, so with a 5-6 hour liaison, riders will be on the road at least 9 hours. Slower guys will be 10-15 hours :eek:



And another view of the campsite where they have been sleeping. Looks nice hey?? I LOVE South Africa.

While we wait for the route, which I believe will only be available after the riders have left, those of you wanting to chase and spectate had better get a move on. Here are another two options:

Option 1) Go the Malgas Pontoon ferry, I believe the riders will be passing through there from about 07:30-8 am. You'll be able to talk to them on the ferry as well! Best to approach from the R319 side. Drive Carefully - You could meet lots of bikes on the way!

Option 2) Drive up to Laingsburg to see the start of the special stage. You need to be there by 11 am to see the first bikes off just after that.

GPS Coords: 33 11.665S 20 51.235E Just over the main bridge from the Shell (?) Grudge and one-stop.
I've marked 2 good spectator points, and the riders route in Blue. Keep off this route please!!

{edit: I will post the  pic after 6:20 am}

Oh yes, Note that rider 127 withdrew before the liaison, and rider Adrian Storm (who was No. 120) has now taken No 127 for one or other technical reason apparently.

Day 1. My start time is 5:36, I am no. 106. 6th on the route. Good and bad. Good - less dust. Bad - navigation will have to be good.

Route is 480k's to start of special. Route organizer has properly scared us. Average speed for the 80k special is apparently 15kph?! Might have break out the imodiums.
