That only applies to the Bronze class

Think it is safe to assume that it will again be at Thaba Bosiu Cultural Village.

I am guessing the following
Charan will want to up the entries to make it more lucrative.
That means making bronze easier and more accessible for the avg rider. The qualifier this year was also very easy.

But to rebuild the event status as the mother of hard enduro, he will have to up the gold class difficulty.

That leaves me with no info on silver, but assume it will be upped a little in difficulty


So just a post full of guessing  :imaposer:

Last year was possibly the worst route from a spectator point of view. The spectator map was a joke.

I will be hard pressed to justify the trip again this year if it is anything resembling last year.

NB:
Spectator perspective

Charan Moore in control this year and will be an awesome event. Young enthusiastic and knows what is needed. Also uses pros like Altus De Wet. Will be worth it

Also a note on spectating. You need to go with people who knows what is going on, they take you to the perfect spots.

One week before entries close and there are 370 entries already.

Graham Jarvis and Chris Birch have said they are coming but their names are not on the lists yet.

Who is riding and who will be out there watching?
