« on: August 14, 2020, 04:32:18 pm »
SAVE THE DATE 18-20 Sept.  TANKWA TRAINING & ORIENTATION.
As announced that due to the  Covid uncertainties the 5th Tankwa Cross Country is postponed to 2021. However to ensure continuity and sustainability for Participants, Teams, Organisers, Landowners and Sponsors we continue with a QUAILITY THREE DAY Training and Orientation event. This will help us all stay focused and prepared for the 5Th event in 2021.
It is not a Funride however a real chance to Test your GPS Navigation, Bike Skills, Setup, Endurance and enjoy the Tankwa experience.
Everyone will need to be responsible and adhere to the Covid requirements. We have ample camping space and ablutions to practice safe social distancing avoiding gatherings.
Provisional Program:
Thursday Evening (17th) Compulsory  Scrutineering & compulsory GPS. Scrutineering form will be update at our Website.

Day 1 (18th Sept) approx. 160 – 200Km
Day 2 (19th)  approx. 300Km
Day 3 (20th) approx. 110km
Scoring will be via a points system of route checks, specific way points and speed zone checks.
Successful finishers with receive a Tankwa XC Certificate.
Please Note that entrant will need to be reasonably capable and classes for big wheel bike 125cc upwards.
For Juniors we advise that should there enough interest we could possibly arrange a “fathers & Sons” type of weekend later in the year. At this time, in these circumstances we cannot split tracks and teams (requires too many people) to accommodate 65/85 cc, also all the tracks remain unmarked for this Training and Orientation.
Total Entries are planned for capped at 35.
Booking forms will be up at www.capexcountry.co.za by Friday this week.
Booking forms will include camping fees & meal packages.
We thank all providers, helpers, participants and our sponsors for their patience.
We look forward to seeing you all again.
Cape X Country regards

Yes sir.. After being a marshall for a few years I have decided that its now of never and I have made the leap to the other side. I've been building my 450x for a year now just for this event. I was hoping to do over 1000km for the weekend but i'm thankful that its now reduced because my fitness is just not there for a full event.

360 km in 8 hours is a 45 kph average speed. That's not hanging about in any sense. Don't stop unless you really have to, and take full advantage of every straight bit where you can see ahead safely.

Consider Refuels, your safety and navigation - participants are going to earn their completion certificates that is for sure
your 450 is the machine as on Sat there will be safety time bars.

Its actually true what you say, I had to really think about it.

In the Quarry I average about 25 - 30km/h if i'm giving it the beans but that is thick sand so I was trying to equate it.. Its going to be my 1st time riding with a tower so its going to be a very new experience


Cant wait.. counting the days :thumleft:
