And then on Sunday rode back to Nelspruit in cold, wet miserable weather. Lots of petrol stops for the HP's of course.

nice report. We were also there, really wanted to do the black route as well but had to pass as I was competing at the Trophy and bike had an oil leak. Plus a budy hurt his ankle on Red 2. Seems like we really missed out! Red 2 wasnt to bad though, fortunately. Red 1 was boring

We encountered an injured rider who was being attended to by the medic. They were in contact with the rescue helicopter and we decided to hang around to watch the chopper land.

Awesome picks. I was "crew" on the Chopper for that evac. Pilot made that landing look easy. I can tell you there was some skill their specially with the winds coming off the mountains and the Vultures circling in the area.
