Pretty gutting to be at the finish without my bike, engine ceased at about 23km from the start this morning. Riders still trickling back in, its a hot and long day. Willem just has been handed the dakar challenge trophy. Congratulations!


Poor Mark k crashed badly near the start of the special, and broke his pelvis in a bad rocky section. He is on a plane to cape town for an op, condition serious but stable

I understand that willem won overall and the dakar challenge

Donovan got malle moto and 2nd open.

Jethro got 2nd malle moto and 3rd open class.

Malle moto kick some team ass ;D

Very well done to all who finished this epic race. It was great riding, through really beautiful and wild areas with a good technical mix.

I believe there are 3 bikes at least stuck out there with mechanicals.

Ill write about my epic experience another time.

1) Willem Du Toit
2) Hentie Hanekom
3) Rudie van der Merwe
4) Donovan van de Langeberg
5) Jethro Howell



Prize giving is done:  http://www.amagezarallye.com/results


Alexander Nel and Team: great organisation, top notch road books, great tracking (once we get USA to not mess with satelites), fantastic event...  Well Done!

Has there been a cut off?

or is this provisional results?

Prize-giving done, my take is final results

They waited in Kakamas for over an hour and then rode to Upington...  Not sure about cut-off's...

The tradition is that if you make it home under your own steam on the last day and you don't cut any corners on the liaison, then you get a medal.

The drama's not over, Ludo's rear wheel bearing is toast, it might not make it.

Chris Ogden is going to ride back and if needs be give him his wheel to make it under his own steam.

The spirit amongst these guys are simply inspirational...

Stuff of heroes!

I've enjoyed this so much and somehow sad to see it end.

Can't remember how the rules are against/for outside assistance.  At least he is not Malle Moto, so can get 'external' help.

12 k's to go,

Jut found out, his head bearing is toast too, his engine is not cool and they are stopping to toss oil in every now and then. He has refused to be loaded up and his rear bearing is toast.

He's the last guy in, Joey has organised that everyone come and cheer him in.

Might be a tear or two

Chris and I discussed it, Chris is a fellow competitor and their bikes were not impounded to Parc ferme at the finish, so it would be within the rules.

Adie, I don't if the MSA rules changed, but a fellow competitor was not seen as outside assistance

Die yster van Yzerfontein (117) is styling. West Coast is proud of you... :thumleft
Haha just logged on for the first time in weeks. Thanks for all the support. This was a real eye opener for me.
Yes the malle moto boys did really well. We were a great bunch of guys.
I felt strong and eager at the start this morning but made a stupid mistake at about 135 km. Riding at the front is a different ball game all together. Got lost and proper stuck in a rocky riverbed. After that I pushed hard to try and catch up but it was too late. Donovan took the win for malle moto, I am bummed but also happy for my friend he deserves that trophy.
As for Willem winning, he is not as fast as Hentie but still lightning fast with better navigation. Very happy for him and eager to follow his progress to Dakar 2018.
DO NOT FOLLOW WHERE THE PATH MAY LEAD.
GO INSTEAD WHERE THERE IS NO PATH AND LEAVE A TRAIL.

To all the guys that rode the AMAGEZA , You did the Ralley proud.
A good percentage of the bikes that started finished.
Guys towed each othe, stopped to help each other, You guys were all Epic..
Just a short comendation ,
"JOEY EVENS" All I can say is WOW :

Joey towed Roger Burman 100km, through the mountains on the Special Stage , in the Mountains near Riemvasmaak,
Up loose rocky slopes, down slippery rocky two spoor, in sandy riverbeds,
They wiped out 3 times while towing and yet they still were in good  spirits at  the end of the SS.
And then did the tar home towing.
Joey stopped for anyone that was in trouble,
Well Done Joey !!!

Just got online again for the first time since Thursday - my worst Amageza performance . . .

Thanks for all the updates and well done to all competitors, supporters and organisers! I hope I'll do a better keyboard race next year . . .
