That is not good. Do you use the same rig that I am wearing in one of the picks above? Thor ballistick jacket IIRC

Yep, that's the one - sorry.

I've had it for about 2 years now, the shoulder pads on mine are black. You should be able to access the elbow and fore-arm protection from the outside.

I will take a look at mine and see if that ridge can be removed or modified. I have  fallen on my elbows quite a few times but all at slowspeeds in the rocks and they worked very well up to now. I hope mine are different ???

Well, this was one of the better races I've ever done. Certainly not in terms of my finishing place, whatever that might be, but what a track!!!!!!!!!!!  :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

You missed a good one, Gee S .......................

I took cramp-ease? tablets since Friday - what a difference it made. I swear, when I was finished I felt like I could do it all again. Of course, now, 8 hours later, I'm a bit tired but I'm telling you, those things work. I stood for so much of the race today, I don't think I'll walk for a week  :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Can't really telll you much about the track other than it was tight, twisty, muddy, sandy, grassy, hilly, rocky, open and scary-fast in some places. No lurkers but about 6 billion baby-head rocks. Nothing difficult but loads of stuff ready to kill you. Really cool, I'd do this one again.

No road crossings and, of course, not being in the northern cape, no bloody gates  >:D >:D

Anyone riding this weekend? Do you guys pit on your own? With or without support?

Life has gotten into the way of my plans to race this year but I am still hoping to catch at least a couple of races this year

This weekend's race has been postponed to the 4th July  :'(

Gives you plenty time to get sorted out - no excuses this time  :pot:

I still have plenty excuses left in the tank  :P

I have to spend a lot of cash before I can even pitch at the starting line so not sure when I'll be able to make a race. Have to replace kit, fix bike, get a trailer  etc etc

Anybody else still doing the GOCs?

I've missed the last few races and see the next on is on the 17th Oct in Ventersdorp, the next race being on the 18th Oct. Is this for real?

Yep, after this year's fiasco, I don't find that surprising.

And now, to have 2 races on the same weekend is the cherry on top  ::)

F nose!!

We have round 6 on Sat and round 7 on Sun, according to EMS, 2 different races, with juniors on both days as well - AND both are regionals. Both in Vredefort. 15 senior bikes on saturday and 14 on sunday - massive field  :biggrin:

I'm not on their e-mailing list, which is why I'm asking here. It doesn't seem right.

There'll be a bigger masters class alone, at the farm jam the following weekend - I'm doing that for sure but might as well give the GOCs a miss.

Such a pity.

I've been toying withe idea of buying a 200 and doing the enduro thing - maybe it's time for another change :thumleft:

On the MTB for the rest of this month and will then want to do a race or two Before the end of the year.
Need to make use of that expensive licence that we had to get for Amageza.

Keep us posted
