Can't wait till Saturday! So excited :D

I did a nice lil practice race in Naboomspruit just the other weekend. 4 laps of 45km. Realized how important fitness is when you are racing! Hope this weekend is just as much fun.

Yeah my fitness is lacking to say the least. Wave when you pass me please  ;D

Dwerg, ek het jou gaan soek na die wedren , daar doer by die verpunt soos jy gese het.
Tussen al die 100e gazebos , nie gekry nie.
Dit was goed gewees om jou by die start line en soos jy verby ons pits gery het, te gesien het. LEKKER !
Hoe het jou wedren toe verloop ?

MINXY , well done ! , 6 laps completed in 3 hours then plus the 1 lap , WELL DONE ! MINXY !

Now , with the results confusion , where can we see the results ? I think it will take a while to sort it out.
GXCC's website is offline , eish !  ( as for now )

Thank you! :) It went much better than I expected. We still stayed on to wait for the results, but they announced there was problems with the time keeping system and they will only be able to give us the results later during the week (hopefully). The prize giving will be held together with the next GXCC event.

A, ons het redelik vinnig op gepak na die race. Het verby julle area ook gestap om hello te s maar julle was nie daar nie. Ek moes so 1/4 van die lap ry teen pace, 1/4 rus en so aan. Na lap 4 kon ek nie meer my arms voel nie toe stop ek maar en drink bier  :lol8:

Track was a lot easier than I expected which suits proper unfit overweight hungover weekend worriors like me but I suspect the competitve okes might want something a little more challenging. The twisties were good fun and there were only about 4 or 5 short straight flat out sections. The start took a while but that's hopefully just teething problems. All and all a great day out

Raced it as a shake down ride for the baja. Sommer rode there and back as well on the bike. Glad to say all went well  besides for the front brakes failing with a caliper bolt falling out. Luckily did not end up onmy head.
GODSPEED!

To be honest, Minxy, it did not look like fun in your vid - way too many riders in the same vicinity, at high speeds.

The start has the potential to put a lot of people in hospital - I hope they sort it - the dust is gonna get bad soon  :thumleft:

Anyways, you had a goodie and passed quite a few people (lots!!), which is always lekker  :thumleft:

They say 300+ riders were there - I hope so - it was dying a slow death last year.

See you out there, someday ......................  ;)
