This XC Rally is in its 4th year and has been marketed extensively on social media. There comes a time when people just need to get off their backsides and enter instead of sitting on the sideline being spoon fed off the stories of those who have done it... sorry, just MHO. I also believe what detour did is pretty spectacular and I personally don't think there's too many others with the fitness and skill set to match him. Locally I know of about 5, the likes of BJ Vosloo and Byron etc. Lets hope a few more come next year and prove me wrong  ;D
Agreed with Brett it is marketed quite a lot & quite a few tell us each year they are joining so lets hope so. It is also ideal for those big bore Vintage Bikes. just spent the weekend at Oranjemund Desert 300 with Riaan de Jager who rode his 650R and finished well amongst the numbers. He said similar that it was tuff but doable and will be back next year.

Great write up Dirk & very well done !!! Thank you !
