Glad to see some people I know made the brief entry window...  :) My usual Bloem riding friends seems frustratingly
disinterested this year so I'm hoping to mingle with a new crowd.

Impi was very good when it started out and since then it became even better so we are in for an unforgettable ride.
I've heard people say Impi has become better than the Roof, and they are probably right. And all that at less than
a quarter of the price!



Coincidentally just came off the phone with Craig. I mentioned to him that he is too good for his own good. The entry
fee for Impi is much more valuable than the asking price. I said he could easily triple it and entries will still sell within
hours of opening. His response was heart warming and humbling to say the least. Craig wants the sponsors to step
up to the challenge and give back to the riders. He said riders already have lots of expenses with the bikes ex.

Give that man a Bells!!!

Don't know if everyone realize this but in terms of participants Impi is bigger than the Roof.
I believe there will be at least 600 riders participating. 600 positions were filled within a couple
of hours of entries opening with another 140 riders on a waiting list.

Also signed up for Impi this year.
Can't wait. My fitness is up and up
but I'm worried about my riding time.
Not have much training time in the saddle.

The Impi prologue run today.. Lots of information on their facebook page (The Impi Enduro) with links to their website.
There is also a link to a whatsapp group.

Are there any wilddogs on the scene that can give updates as they go along?
