Here's a shot of a rider tackling the huge hill at the finish line. I thought it was a great idea that they added this monster in the route (probably because I wasn't riding  >:D) as it set the scene of a mini Romaniacs. Eventually spectators were standing on top of the hill dragging the less skilled and knackered riders up with ropes. It really added to a great atmosphere  :thumleft:

Sorry about the poor photo quality, this was shot on my iphone at some distance as I couldn't climb with crutches.
If anyone had a decent camera there they would have shot some awesome photos of the carnage later in the race.
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F

If you're dumb you gotta be tough !!!

Liar - you punctured and left it lying in the pits feeling sorry for itself while you rode around on a girl's bike.

Say....was that you following me around, thinking I'm a girl?  Pervert, and just married at that.

That girlie bike nearly broke my big toe, slamming through the whoops - was to scared of taking of my ATTGAT till I got to the camping site, only to realise it is nothing.

ATTGAT, MudGAT - six of one, half a dozen of the other.

Thanks for the spring, when I see you next time...

So I had really hoped to get more like 3-4 hours of footage to work with but with all the rain I got maybe 25 minutes worth, I will have some other clips that I will edit and get up but they didnt really fit into the feel of what I ended up with.

Also not really enough footage to time it to the music much, sorry guys.

With any luck the weather for the Woescter race will be better

It was trying conditions, with other complexities (like camping with me, which is a notoriously pot-luck affair)

Your good humour was appreciated...skip the Bells, have one of these:

Long shot I know, but I lost my 2 paddock stands off my trailer, somewhere between the farm and where the tar road starts on the way to Piketberg.

Looks like these:



Anybody picked them up?
Will be much appreciated.

While we're at the lost and found section, I lost a valve somewhere in the whoops section.  If someone finds a 4T KTM valve, please toss it off the track, it might cause a puncture.  Made it all the way to the end with only 3 valves, though.  Tough little bastard.  After cooling down, no further starting.
