Amageza 2014 with a Jagsding
« on: November 10, 2014, 07:34:11 am »
I know what it's like as a reader to have a report started and then not added to for a while. Well, that's just how this one will go. In between me moving house today, work, having to go overseas, up-load a ton of video and photo's, you dear reader, are going to have to do this rally report with a bit of patience.

So first off, what's a Jagsding you may ask?



It's the forum name of Justin and as long ago as February, he offered his services as support crew as he was keen to experience it but not ride it. I am so glad he did, it made my and many others' Amageza a great experience. Sadly the bug bit a bit too hard - he will be needing a support crew of his own for next year!

Anyway, this was the end result of the adventure and I now have the post rallye blues.



Just to keep you interested, here is a small video of the biggest dune in the race. It was a few k's from the start of stage 2

Now back to work with you.

I'll be along with the rest shortly....
I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

Incredible riding...
