To Alex and all the people behind the scenes responsible in making this whole machine work,you are all rock stars. :thumleft:

To all the riders,here is wishing you that all the hard work,preparation in getting to the starting line is rewarding,whether you make it to the finish line or not.

I cannot wait for the start or for this thread to get exciting. Like every year I do not get online much,but the first thing I do when I get home is catch up on every post.

This year will be EPIC.

Most of the bikes are already through scrutineering its going really well so far. :hello2:

No problems reported, with only one Withdrawal so far: #23 Peter Parkin? Im not sure this is correct because it is the side-by-side. ??? Anyway someone decided to out after injuring himself two weeks ago.

I expect everyone to be pretty relaxed now, shooting the breeze ahead of the start of the 600km 1st stage tomorrow. No amount of coaxing would reveal where the guys will be tomorrow night. Its being kept a tight secret.

I have confirmed we will be able to follow all the riders on the Amageza website. Well done Alexander & team!  :hello2:

Growing each year in professionalism, rider support and enthusiasm. Well done so far to all of the organizers, the teams, the support crews, the spectators and everyone involved. Let's see another safe and successful Amageza Rally this year.. Good luck to one and all of you. Keep it all together and most importantly, have fun...
