Hey Fellow dogs,

I know they had the Bronze qualifier this weekend? Who is all taking part, or know of people taking part in the different classes?

Kind Regards

As Michael said, the qualifier is only later this month and if you haven't entered yet, I'm afraid you're too late, entries closed long ago. No, I'm not riding, I still have too many brain cells screaming at me, I'll need to fall on my head a few more times before I make that committment  ;)
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F

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

Hi Drew

Your mail to Justin was only sent on Saturday afternoon. I think your comment on this forum "Roof admin seem not too bothered at the moment" a little unfair under the circumstances (especially as you thought we were running the Quali this weekend!).....Incidentally Justin has checked all his mail inc. his spam and did not receive the mail.

We will reply to your mail in due course.

Regards

Peter

Hi Peter,

Yes sir, I did think and was under the impression it was this past weekend. I am quite impatient sometimes, especially when I try to make things happen, and I apologize for this, I do not always reply to emails but I always acknowledge receipt as soon as possible. I am planning on possibly throwing a lot of money into this event, that might be why I may be a little impatient and also possibly a little anxious, intimidated and stressed. I don't want to get into an argument or upset anyone unnecessarily. I am looking forward to receiving your email, and hope to be a part of the Roof this year.

Kind Regards

There were of course a few honorable mentions. Pity I didn't get pictures of all the bravery
and endurance that came down. Guys and girls were pushed to breaking point by the time
they neared the finish at Bushman's. Two okes begged me for water from the bladder I was
still carrying when I went down the pass to spectate. One meant well to freeze the contents
of his bladder and needless to say he rode the whole second loop with a block of ice on his back.

Christopher Style, my partner in crime, made a navigational error and lost 2 hours getting lost
in the mountains. When he finally came up to the finish he was really demotivated but gave it
his best still.

148 : Morne Coetzer - he came in 95th.

This sport really brings together the best of humanity. I think it is because Extreme Enduro
is so humbling. Kings or Queens, rich or poor, rocks doesn't discriminate.

Thanks Danie. Ek het natuurlik 'n onregverdigge voordeel gehad. Met David aan my kant is geen berg te hoog nie.  ;)
Dinge het egter 'n bietjie rof geraak so baie TLC sal in orde wees.
