Chris is riding MaxthePanda's old bike that he bought off of him. It's a sorted bike and one that Chris worked on when he came along as backup last year.

It's gets stranger than fiction....

Kobie can't see so lekker - he's farsighted, life right in front of him is a bit of a blur. So Gideon has this flashing light taped to his bike so he can pick him out. Kobie can't navigate either so he has to stick with Gideon. Gideon for those that don't know is lighting fast, he won one of the tougher stages in 2014. Kobie was a factory KTM rider in his day. Both are national champions. I've ridden a bit with both. They are nuts.

Robert aka Darthvader has a rally nickname... Von Faff.

If anything normally takes 10 minutes, Robert can easily make a day of it and lose shit whilst doing it.

During Amageza 2 he stopped next to the track to fix a puncture, and lost the rear axle nut.
With help from a few of us, it took a good 2 hours to find it.

Our own Dakar finisher Kobus Potgieter. He's not slow, but he's not going to be right at the front. He does this for fun. He'll probably get a top 10







Utter Porrrrrrn! And he has two of them!

Go Chris!!! (and the Pandamobile)  :snorting:

I see all the usual suspects are in tow... organisers and competitors alike. Peter looks like he's spent most of his prep time putting stickers on his bike which will no doubt make it much faster, so he better win. Of course he'll have to beat Kobus, who's a battle hardened Dakar veteran now with a reputation to uphold. And then there's the Subtech boys as usual, Joey only needs one working tyre on his bike, and a special shout out to Von Faff - he's spent all his training time practicing his wheelies, so if he doesn't ride the entire special on both days on one wheel I'm lodging an official complaint.

Some more elder statesmen

- Kevin Thompson, he's pushing some big numbers and has competed in a few Amageza's

.



Ardi of Rockfox fame, an utter Gentleman and serious propeller head. A lot of the field will be using his Cap and trip repeaters and roadbooks. He's pushing 60'ish. Him and his son Mike are racing. Last year Ardi managed only 2 days before falling out. An epic effort considering that he had not only all the manufacturing of rally kit to do, but to make things a little more challenging they were also riding prototype self made rally bikes.

Donavan is very quick, but has been prone to some bad mechanical luck and once a navigation issue. He's flipping competitive he'll be near the top.
