Brad,

Does the desert run start on the 3rd in Kuruman or what? When do we actually start the riding?

Brad,

You will start riding on the Saturday, 4th. If you doing the Botswana border route (Middelpits), get going very early (dark) or you will suffer the traffic on that route. Dangerous with dust and quads, 4x4's flying through their and it is twee spoor, sandy stuff.

Upside to the early start is you will be early in Molopo to enjoy your last warm shower and working toilet for a few days! :biggrin:

Irrespective of the routes you guys ride, always be aware of in-experienced riders, drivers of support vehicles and quads riders stopping on the road and/or going slow pace. Every year you hear of riders riding into stationary vehicles in the dust.

Therefore, I believe in an early start each day to miss the crowd. ;)


You guys must enjoy!  :drif:

Gents

I will be traveling from Mossel Bay with XChallenge on back of bakkie. Bakkie will be left in Kuruman and picked up after run. I will then travel to JHB for holiday with fam. Anyone from CAW, CG, CX, CBS want to save their tyres and split petrol cash?

Regards
Durandt
