Stoffel is my pel. As hy nog hare groei date ek hom

Hinksding/ Stoffelina is deel van die crew/beoordelaars. Sy lang hare maak my j@gs

Sterkte aan al die deelnemers. Almal is verseker goeie manne. Ek ken n paar persoonlik.
If i had to explain you would not understand anyway......

We were in a combi to get to the Honda Dealership. It's rush hour traffic, holy moly! I nearly put my helmet on!

I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

Apparently there will be some dignitaries/media giving us a send off. Best comb my hair!

Thanks Andrew - keep us updated whenever possible?  We will be checking probably far too often.

Few questions:

1.) Manual vs DCT bike allocation. Do you get to choose a bike - set it up for yourself for the period or do you swop between Manual and DCT in your team?
2.) Team allocations. Please share?

Good luck to everyone and enjoy the journey and enjoy Namibia.

We will only learn of our team mates this afternoon.

Each team will get one of each model. We will be required to swap 4 times per day. It is a requirement of the competition to do this as well as to give feedback on the experience too

My initial observations

Skaars daar dan drink julle al.

Iemand moet vir Hinksding laat buk dat sy hare saam met sy skape geskeer word. Hy lyk soos 'n apostel

Ek het hom laas gese ek sal n haarsny sponsor, maar nee! :)
