I know you are a Roof vet but surely it was a big calculated risk to partake this year so close to Dakar? I know there are some Dakar riders that barley ride for a month before the race ... that said Toby broke his wrist a week or so back  :o

Best of luck  :thumleft: :ricky: :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

Howzit

Yes it was a risk , i choose silver and didnt take any chances (walking down lots of things i normally would ride)
But im keeping on the bike until i fly, i want to keep fit and fresh .(have a 2 day 800km Transkie trip im starting tommorrow)
I like to keep my mind and body busy (probably have adult ADH)

Im running a Fox legion jacket, i plan to mainly ride with sleeves off (enduro style)
Thats the main reason i got riding shirts, i would really like to ride only shirt when it is super  hot (you have body amour and undervest on aswell, i really dont ;like riding with a jacket)

These days even some of the top Bronze riders are not weekend warriors anymore. They are sponsored riders and some even home school to focus on racing etc.
So competition is very tough. 10th in Silver is a tremendous achievement.

 :drif: Damn, that bike looks awesome.


You should be fine, the weather is not critically hot in Peru like you see in the dust bowls of Argentina, thanks to the effect of the cold ocean current.

Malle Moto is a good place to be , lots of like minded around him .
They do help each other as far as possible , but still very tough .

Brilliantly easing himself into the race and starting to chip away and moving up in position.  I think we might see a surprisingly good result :ricky:

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more"
