Ja no, look: Birchy boy has done it all already anyway. Let's not take that away from him. I do believe he has won multiple extreme enduro's and though be might not have competed with the new hot shit guys, I have no doubt had he been 15-20 yrs younger he would be a right up there with them.
Let's not forget he also did the Dakar with Darryl Curtis etc.
No, Chris is no longer interested in getting a gold. He interestes in doing something even bit harder and I take my hat off to him.
Danie, you had better hope they both don't make it because if they you, you are never gonna hear the end of it from all the 1200 riding gods. Just think of all those fotos & footage they will have to post of boxer engines passing YZ 300's in the forests.
