BB You know your shit man. Nice to get insight into the roadbook :thumleft:

Let the fun begin.

Looking at the Live tracking - https://data.africanstuff.co.za/raceview/race/racemap/amageza-2015/ - I can't seem to zoom in too much - anybody help?

We sure hope you get things sorted RS  :thumleft: must be extremely frustrating to spend a whole year prepping and waiting for the last day and not get to start. Best of luck..

Tracking will only let you zoom in to 50kms. Alex really taking steps to not leaving cheating door open. I was trying To find out where we could even spectate and apparently only Alex and three others know the route. The guys were only given the special road book to mark up last night. Liaison was handed out this morning in parc ferme.

Was a great start a bit of drizzle. The sound of the guys engines all running was a phenomenal one! We're heading to mafikengtonight don't know where the bivouac is going to be but they'll be crossing the border first thing. Probably somewhere really remote.
If your'e going to do something do it with conviction!

Gutting for you Eddie and us too Eddie. :(  Especially after all that prep. At least you will still get to ride a bit.
