And I'm sure he's gotten flabby and unfit and can't remember which side the clutch lever is. Not that he ever knew where the brakes were...

All bets are off...

Iím also looking for a 2nd hand bike. Nothing looks worse that an out of shape, unskilled rider bringing up the rear on the latest equipment.

Of the offroad bikes I owned the 300XCW was my favourite.
In technical terrain it really is like cheating.

Last year they were opening entries about 2 weeks before the race - maybe it'll be the same this year.

Which MSA license did you get by the way? I was shopping around on their website and there's all these categories... Not too sure which license is sufficient.

So I donít need a competition licence for the GOC races, just a Medical Aid card. This is quite important for me, because I have zero chance of getting medical clearance. I donít want to go to all the trouble for nothing.

You must have a MSA license with their compulsory medical insurance to race GOC. The application is online and you tick no to all the medical questions if there is nothing applicable to you. If you click yes then another page will open up and you will have to give more details and get a report from your own doctor which MSA will consider before deciding to issue a license.

I have an outstanding request for a medical clearance certificate. I canít get around it unless I get a doctor to lie for me, which could get us both into serious trouble. Itís not worth it

Minxy, if you plan to do the Amageza 2015 , things could be complicated as it could involve a (international)/national/club licence, the regs will state what the requirements will be. Check the Amageza 2015 regs , is it available yet ? Alex should be contacted for that info.
For GOC races , I think a club licence is a minimum requirement. Check out their regs.
