I don't mind the races being a little open. Riding fitness is nowhere near good enough for tough riding. We'll see how it goes and maybe enter an enduro or two later in the year. Bazinga is riding the crf450r so tech wouldn't suite him

The tech is not opfok tech like the Roof - just means there's some rocks to throw you off the bike, some trees to crash into, some water to drown in and some mud and sand to throw you into some razor wire.

And Bazinga has just the right weapon to f--k himself up properly - no broken fingers here, mate :thumleft:

Fearless counts more than fitness - you can't do push-ups with a broken neck, anyway  ::)

The GOC's used to scare me, and I was on a TTR! If it's going to go wrong at those speeds it will hurt.

Not sure how you balance the risk/reward ratio Rob? No enduros for you rather?

I am happy to announce that I am one of two ladies which have been picked to ride with the Mc Larens Racing team for the GXCC season this year. My race number is C456, nice and easy to remember! The Mc Larens team also does some great photography at the events so give their facebook page a like to get the newest updates:

Nope, you gotta phone Carmen back after getting your license number and she will then give you a race number.

I kid you not ..............  ::)

Dit was 'n single race lisensie gewees vir Amageza en daar was nie club en nommers en so betrokke nie

Trust me, when you finish that first race, 6 beers aren't gonna cut it  :thumleft:

But well done, I'm not too happy missing the first race - you'll have to tell us all about it.

That feeling you get on the start line - priceless!!

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.
