WCOC Sandveld - Redelinghuys Off-Road 26 July
« on: May 19, 2014, 11:39:33 am »
WCOC next Off-Road race will be mostly Sand - yes we need one sand race each year.
In the wet winter West Coast sand is a much better option than mud  :thumleft:

Hi Garfield

Yes Ladies  Intro class will run through out the year, they will ride the junior track 12-14km, it is somewhat sandy but they need to gain experience.
Will update once we start layout - will be mindful as we prepare for juniors & ladies

@ Buff  - Cathy will keep the flag flying - hope you heal soon

@ Bill - Only Ladies intro class & juniors on the blue loop (14km).
Once Ocket has done a timed run we will make a final call on laps or hours.
2011 we made it a bit on the long side so for now we taken out about 8km in the top section. There are a few added new semi technical sections.
The regional competitors who ride three hours + 1 lap will still be as is.
Social & two hour classes are in for two laps, however one lap will still count as a finish.
Hope to see you down for this one, think Weskus is coming down too.

My guess this race will see top quads & bikes with similar overall times.

@ Cracker we hope to make an announcement soon to host back 2 back races in Ceres Kouebokkeveld 18/19 Oct.
Will be inviting all competitors from up North, Botswana, Namibia who might like to freight their bikes/quads to Cpt - we will down load them get them to Ceres & loaded back for JHB or where ever, this way you would only need to hire a small car (or group together).
Plans are underway for two tracks, quads & bikes switch over on day two with racing finishing aprox 2pm each day, allows time afterwards.
Soon we hope to have final permissions in place & start with invitations to all interetsed. :thumleft:

18th October is the final round of this years GOC, so response from the vaalies might not be great.
However, it's just a club race so the national/regional riders will be available.
Good luck with your plans and keep us in the loop, you never know ...........................
