Not that I've found - keep an eye on Family Adventures as well. Although not a race, they have good outrides, similar to GOC and you can ride at whatever speed you want.

Next year, with the demise GOC, it may be worth looking at the regional races.

Finally got around to buying a bike. Hopefully I can catch you guys at some events next year. I hope they don't start too early because my fitness is still..... well.... non existent and the December over indulgence is on the way as well

Look up Africa Off-Road racing

Similar to GOC but run under the WOMZA license - I will probably be doing this. It may be where all the GOC riders went ..........

GOC was a cock-up this year and if the same people are running it next year, it'll be a waste of time - they messed us around big time and their turnout was getting smaller by the day.

Yes, they took the rally kit off last week. Took it for a test ride at DeWildt last weekend. Oil issue it had seems to be ok now. I'll probably ride around with extra oil in my backpack though since I got a phobia now :P Just a bit of work on the suspension and I think the BMW will be good for next year.
Which bike are you going to be on Dwerg?

Nice glad it's sorted! I'll be riding a KTM 250 smoker  ;D

I seriously need to do some rides. You are probably way ahead of me by now with all the riding you guys have been doing. I'll get the bike next week but I'll probably only be able to ride it next year. At best maybe squeeze in one ride this year
